The V2X Conference for Automotive Safety and Mobility Europe is the premiere B2B forum and the key start of year event created specifically to answer the crucial tech, imminent deployment and business strategy questions.

After the EU Commission’s research uncovered that V2X technology could reduce road traffic accidents in Europe by 27%, saving 8000 lives a year, this topic has become a key focus in the automotive and transport sectors. Just this week, FIA, Ford and Ericson confirmed that they will be attending and addressing the audience of 100+ automotive, telematics, transport and govt. executives at the V2X for Auto Safety Conference in Frankfurt to lay out a clear strategy for deployment.

Shreya Ganapathy, Project Director, has announced exactly what the focus for the two day conference will be. “The V2X Conference for Automotive Safety and Mobility Europe is the premiere B2B forum and the key start of year event created specifically to answer the crucial tech, imminent deployment and business strategy questions set to unlock the value V2V and V2I innovation in the EU market and beyond. High quality, seamless and personalized end-to-end connected vehicle and infrastructure deployment are at the top of the agenda”.

At this lucrative tipping point for connected vehicle services, The V2X for Auto Safety and Mobility Conference and Expo 2013 marks the start of a critical year in the deployment and development of the V2X industry. With deployment on the horizon, it is imperative that the ecosystem unites at the start of 2013 to engage and improve safety across Europe.
