"The Washington Auto Show has long championed the theme of sustainable mobility, and we're honored that one of the world's leading safety experts will speak on behalf of the Administration at our Public Policy Day," said Geoff Pohanka, chairman of the 2016 Washington Auto Show and metro area representative on the board of the National Automobile Dealers Association.
The 2016 Washington Auto Show: The Power of Mobility preview opens on Jan. 20 with the first of two Public Policy Days. The events will kick off with a Capitol Hill forum on Jan. 20 with a full day of press conferences and special events, highlighted by Dr. Rosekind’s government keynote, following on Jan. 21.
"As the Washington Auto Show puts it, 'the power of mobility' is a force that, literally, transports our lives to new vistas and possibilities," says Rosekind. "With new technologies from automated driving to improved blind-spot monitoring, we also have the opportunity and responsibility to put safety first."
