There will be 40 additional exhibitors from the public, private and non-profit sectors presenting the latest in products, services and technology in the transportation and environmental sustainability sectors.
Speakers and panelists from the mid-west will discuss electric vehicle adoption, funding for new technologies, driverless vehicle technology, mass transit, Bus Rapid Transit and other topics. City of Madison staff will be involved in the presentations as well.
