LAAUTOMOBILITyThe winner of the Tech CARS Award for Best Automotive Trade Show, the Connected Car Expo has metamorphosed into a technology/automotive mega show with a stunning array of speakers and exhibitors along with technology startup and design contests. Registration is now open for AutoMobility LA, “the” event for the new mobility ecosystem of automakers, tech companies, designers, developers, startups, investors, dealers, government officials, analysts and visionaries to redefine the future of transportation.
