The Washington Auto Show® to Spotlight Advanced Mobility with 65,000-square-foot "Advanced Technology SuperHighway"
With its emphasis on sustainable solutions for the future of the automotive industry, The Washington Auto Show will again feature its landmark Advanced Technology SuperHighway (ATS), a 65,000-square-foot assembly of innovations in safety and sustainability.
The special pavilion, which will feature exhibits according to technology, will highlight developments in hydrogen, clean diesel, electric, biofuel and natural gas technologies as well as in safety. The display will be on view throughout the 2012 Washington Auto Show, which opens to the public from Jan. 27 to Feb. 5 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center and is produced by the Washington Area New Automobile Dealers Association (WANADA).
Along with being the largest public show in Washington, The Washington Auto Show is known as the "Public Policy Show" on the global auto show circuit and kicks off with two days of private events for government, industry and media known as Public Policy Preview Days. They begin on Jan. 25 with The Washington Auto Show Policy Summit, two high-level panels featuring major government and industry leaders, and continue on Jan. 26 with a full day of press announcements and unfettered access to the show floor.
"Given our show's pivotal Washington address, we take seriously our role to convene public policy makers with industry leaders on the key issues facing the automotive sector, from jobs to green technology," said Robert Fogarty, President of Sport Automotive and Chairman of the 2012 Washington Auto Show. "You will find the highest levels of discussion on those matters during Public Policy Preview Days, and the conversation will continue as we present the latest technology to the public."
The 70th edition of The Washington Auto Show presents more than 700 vehicles from over 42 domestic and import manufacturers.
Show producer WANADA represents more than 225 franchised new vehicle dealers and 75 related vendors in the District of Columbia, Northern Virginia and Suburban Maryland.
