The PLUG-IN 2013 event comes to San Diego and offers four days of opportunity to network with EV industry stakeholders, discussing real data and real-world reporting and analyzing what’s next for the EV industry.
PLUG-IN 2013 is an international conference that offers expert insights on the technical advances, market research and policy initiatives shaping the future of plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) technology. Discussions will focus on the latest real-world data on advanced PEV technology, user experiences and electric transportation infrastructure.
The exposition floor offers a forum for conference attendees to connect and establish long-term relationships with decision-makers who are driving the electric vehicle and EV infrastructure markets. A variety of vehicles, electricity infrastructure, batteries, components and other innovations associated with plug-in technology will be on display.
