World Auto Forum Organises Connected Vehicles Certification Programme Online

The world’s first day-long online programme on connected vehicles certification was organised along with a virtual exhibition that created a new benchmark in the way online programmes are perceived and executed

World Auto Forum has created history by organising the world's first virtual exhibition at WAFit! 2020, Connected Vehicles Online Programme. The theme of the WAFit! 2020 event was ‘Mission 2030: 100 % Connected Vehicles’. Various speakers for the day threw light on many important aspects related to connected vehicles, as well as related future opportunities and challenges that need to be addressed to make connected vehicles a reality in India.

WAFit! 2020 was conducted in partnership with FICCI and ASDC and brought together top CIOs, IT professionals, legal, security and AR/VR experts to brainstorm on various facets of connected vehicles. Organised in collaboration with Digital Agents Interactive, WAF’s virtual exhibition guided the audience into life like simulation with multiple WAF partner’s employees represented their companies at booths virtually and interacted with the audience at the exhibition online.

Anuj Guglani, CEO, World Auto Forum, said WAFit! 2020 was planned months in advance and the lockdown due to Covid-19 pandemic challenged us. Instead of cancelling or postponing, WAF decided to go ahead with the entire program digitally!

Auto Tech Review was the media partner for WAFit! 2020 and the Virtual Exhibition can be accessed at:
