This June, Forth hosted the Roadmap conference, our signature annual event, bringing together a broad spectrum of stakeholders in the electric and advanced mobility ecosystem. With participants from 10 countries and 42 U.S. states, it was our largest Roadmap yet, with a 40% increase in attendees (just under 1200 compared to 850 in 2018)! Not only is this an exciting milestone for Forth, it is indicative of the growth of the industry. We look forward to Roadmap’s continued growth in the future!
