The world’s most significant gathering of emobility leaders, the EV Summit, is back as an in-person event at the University of Oxford’s Saïd Business School. The event will take place on 1-2 September, 2021 and returns as a hybrid, in-person meets digital event.
With the UK being at the forefront of the UK vaccination programme rollout, with over 50 million vaccines given, it has helped create the framework for bringing the EV Summit back as an in-person event. The EV Summit will bring international leaders to the summit digitally and invite their UK representatives to join in-person.
Now in its fourth year, the EV Summit has earned the epithet ‘the Davos for emobility’, noted for attracting CEO speakers and as a platform for major announcements in the sector.
This year the EV Summit is placing the master narrative of decarbonisation at the centre of this year’s event. It will be reflecting this in the climate stripes that you’ll see on all the Summit’s branding, this year, as well as in the framing of the debate at the summit.
The two-day summit will once again be bringing together business leaders and key players working on electric vehicles, energy, information technology and charging infrastructure, to explore how we advance full, battery-electric and emobility.
Ade Thomas, co-founder of the EV Summit, said: “The EV Summit is known for both being the forum for the world’s emobility leaders to present new strategy ideas, but also, crucially, as a meeting place for high-level partnerships to take place, as part of our managed introductions process.
“Although, like the summit itself, that meetings process went online, last year, there is, we know, an enormous amount of potential energy, looking to be transferred to the kinetic energy of meeting up in-person.”
Working closely with Oxford University’s Saïd Business School, the EV Summit will have reduced delegate numbers to reflect the new way of meeting safely. It will be implementing a strict regime of health and safety measures. This will be both in line with Oxford University’s own rules and additional measures implemented by the summit itself.
