Clean Fuels Ohio hosts Annual Midwest Green Transportation Forum and Expo

8/14/20

Clean Fuels Ohio will host the innovative annual Midwest Green Transportation Forum and Expo (Sept. 14-25, 2020). The Clean Fuels Ohio team has developed a creative solution to allow people to virtually come together and learn about the clean transportation technology industry’s advances and opportunities in 2020, free of charge.

The Midwest Green Transportation Forum and Expo will be conducted through the world-renowned networking and event app, Whova. After registering for the event, attendees will:

  • Download the Whova app to a smart device from the App Store or Google Play
  • Sign up to the Whova app using an email and password
  • Or, access the app online via a desktop or laptop computer

Registration for general attendance is FREE and attendee participation is completely customizable. This year’s event will have no instances of simultaneous panels, so attendees do not need to worry about missing a session. Additionally, content will be hosted on the app/site for 6 months after the close of MWGT.

“We have a roster of 115 fantastic speakers lined up to present 30 panels over the course of 10 business days,” said Sam Spofforth, executive director of Clean Fuels Ohio. “From big picture sessions, to policy, EVs, Autogas, natural gas and more, there will be plenty of cutting-edge information to take in.”

Sessions are scheduled to run virtually from 10:30 a.m.-noon, 1-2 p.m., and 2:30-3:30 p.m. every day. Networking breaks, select stakeholder meetings, and virtual exhibit hall tours are built into the agenda.

“The use of a digital networking space sets the Midwest Green Transportation Forum & Expo apart this year,” said Brendan Kelley, director of Drive Electric Ohio and Clean Fuels Ohio. “Attendees can connect on a community feed board, much like the one on Facebook, where people can ask questions, send direct messages to other attendees, and even host virtual hangouts in the app for up to 30 people.”

Whova also has a virtual exhibitor hall feature where interested attendees can purchase a virtual exhibit space, to highlight and sell their products and services. This allows exhibitors to network as a business, not just as an individual.
