The Roadmap Conference in 2020

Forth is thrilled to be holding Roadmap in conjunction with the 33rd International Electric Vehicle Symposium (EVS) June 14-17, 2020 in Portland, OR. EVS is the largest electric mobility event in the world and rotates continents - this will be the first time it's held in the Pacific Northwest. EVS33 will include technical panel sessions, a Ride and Drive event, a trade show with 400+ exhibitors, tours of local demonstration projects, a Public Day where the exhibition and Ride and Drive are open to the community, and lots of networking opportunities with industry leaders from around the globe.

Roadmap sessions will be held concurrently with the EVS33 technical sessions and registration will be through the EVS33 website - two events for one ticket! There will not be a formal CFP for the 2020 Roadmap sessions at EVS33 and the CFP for Roadmap in 2021 will open later this year. Learn more here >>

COVID-19: Roadmap & EVS33

EVS33 is organized by EDTA and they are following guidance from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as recommendations set forth by the United States government. They are also tracking industry-specific information from the leading trade show associations, including International Association of Exhibitions and EVENTS (IAEE), the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry (UFI), and the Professional Convention Management Association (PCMA) regarding best practices. At this time, local Oregon authorities have restricted large gatherings through April 8, but there are no recommendations to cancel events beyond that date. To view EDTA's COVID-19 statement and conference registration policies, visit evs33portland.org. As a reminder, Roadmap and EVS33 will be on one ticket this year.

Forth is also carefully monitoring updates on the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and will follow all recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Oregon Health Authority, and the Multnomah County Health Department for the events we're coordinating before and after EVS33. At this time, local Oregon authorities have restricted large gatherings through April 8, but there are no recommendations to cancel events beyond that date. We are actively working to take careful precautions for your health and safety.
