The Future of the Automobile Conference brings together leading voices from car manufacturers, technology companies and regulatory agencies for a day-long series of talks and panel discussions on one of the biggest technological, economic and social changes facing the US and the world in the coming years. The inaugural conference was held at the Petersen Automotive Museum in west Los Angeles on May 3rd, 2018. The conference is jointly organized by the Petersen and the Los Angeles World Affairs Council.

Long a center of car culture, Los Angeles is emerging as the epicenter of new transportation development. The world is watching closely to see how we redesign our urban landscape around new electric, autonomous and ridesharing technologies. California will play a key role in creating the hardware and the software and establishing the regulatory framework that will underlie a dramatic shift in the transportation industry extending across America and around the world.
