AutoMobility LA features the latest insights into the industry’s hottest topics, including, but not limited to Autonomy, Electrification, Connectivity and Sharing.


Speakers at the Los Angeles Auto Show’s AutoMobility LA are some of the most intuitive thinkers and inventors shaping the future of mobility. We are looking for a diverse cast of entrepreneurs, futurists, researchers, engineers, programmers, designers, analysts, C-level executives, disrupters and academics who have the desire to share insights and ideas that move us forward, both figuratively and literally.

Upon determining our speakers, we choreograph talks, events and panels over the course of AutoMobility LA that are designed to inspire, educate and connect professionals who do business in the rapidly transforming new mobility industry.

We will have four to five solo talks and up to ten panels focusing on a number of different topics, all taking place on Tuesday, November 27, 2018.
