In the digital age that we live in, it's only fitting that auto shows have gone virtual too, and AutoWeek is sponsoring one of the nation's first virtual car shows. The show will promote environmentally friendly vehicles, green technology, legislation and infrastructure, with a strong emphasis on creating an event without the impressive (or is that oppressive?) carbon impact of the traditional mega-shows we are accustomed to.
AutoWeek's Virtual Green Car Show kicks off on September 22nd and runs for just two days. Highlights of the show include numerous interactive categories such as a "virtual exhibition hall" that will display environmentally friendly vehicles from major automakers. In addition, several companies will be in the spotlight to display technologies including electric vehicle charging systems, recycling of battery-powered vehicles and new methods to produce clean electricity for use in plug-in vehicles.
Saving the best for last, the show is open for all to attend – it's absolutely free of charge, requires no travel on your behalf and is not filled with thousands of people in a cramped space. To attend simply log on to the site and register. The show will be produced by ON24, a San Francisco-based company that specializes in virtual events.
