Electronomous 2018 offers tantalising glimpse at future of car-tech

The automotive industry is now the ‘mobility space’ and it’s changing at breakneck speed. In a few weeks, Electronomous will put the spotlight on what those changes are – and how they will affect how we get from A to B.

An international line-up of experts from the auto/tech industries will gather in Killarney, Ireland, on 2-3 May for Electronomous, the annual forum for topics including electric vehicles, connected car technology, autonomous vehicles, cyber security and more.

The conference is being organised by vehicle history and data expert Cartell.ie, to discuss how technology is changing all aspects of the automotive world. That includes the rapid development of mobility solutions and other key industry processes such as insurance, finance and sales.

“Unmissable” future transport event

The event will be hosted by Quentin Wilson, former ‘Top Gear’ presenter and award-winning motoring journalist, who said: “Electronomous is a major future transport event with industry-leading speakers, experts and fascinating debates. If you’re interested in the new era of personal mobility – it’s unmissable”.
