The AEVA Electric Vehicle Conference and Expo was held on August 5-7 2022. Images from the event can be found here.

***

Public interest in EVs is at an all-time high, so now is the time to showcase the range of EVs and related businesses available in the Australian market.

The EV Conference and Expo 2022 will provide consumers with access to the major vendors and the latest information from here and abroad, enabling them to make informed decisions when considering the purchase of an EV or related product.

It will also give AEVA members the opportunity to display their EV conversion (if they have completed one), to participate in try/rides for the public, and to share their knowledge at the Expo workshops.

The EV Conference and Expo 2022 will be held at Exhibition Park in Canberra (EPIC) from Friday 5 August to Sunday 7 August 2022.

 

 

The Conference will be held in the Coorong Pavilion on Friday 5 August. It will feature industry leaders and guest speakers from around the world.

 

 

The Expo will be held in and near the Budawang Pavilion on the Saturday and Sunday.  It will feature exhibition stalls, try-rides, a display of members' conversions, consumer talks and Q&A with industry speakers and AEVA members.  The Prospectus can be found here.

DISPLAY OF CONVERSIONS, AND TRY/RIDES

Any AEVA member who has completed a conversion is encouraged to bring that vehicle to the Expo, and to include it in the Display of Conversions.  This Display will take place inside the Coorong Pavilion.

If you plan to include a Conversion in the display, you should arrive at the Coorong Pavilion between 8.30am and 9.30am on Saturday 6 August.

Those members, and other AEVA members who are driving a standard model (ie not a conversion) to Canberra are also welcome to provide try/rides for the public.  These try/rides will be based in the carpark in front of the Coorong Pavilion.

Any member wishing to do participate in either of the above activities should register their interest by e-mailing the National Secretary (Warwick Cathro) at secretary@aeva.asn.au

This will assist in organising the spaces inside and outside of the Coorong Pavilion.

GLEN GEORGE TROPHY

This competition is designed to recognise AEVA members who have travelled long distances in an EV to reach the AGM. A perpetual trophy organised by AEVA National Council was awarded for the first time in Devonport in 2017.

AEVA members who are driving their EV to the Conference/Expo are encouraged to compete for this trophy in 2022.  More information can be found at the Glen George Trophy page
