Clean Vehicles, Clean Fuels, Clean Air, Clean Cities!

2020 Green Drives Conference and Expo

Chicago Area Clean Cities invites you to attend its ninth annual Green Drives Conference and Expo on Thursday, April 30, 2020, at the Northern Illinois University Conference Center in Naperville, IL.

Transportation now accounts for the largest portion of total U.S. Greenhouse Gas Emissions and is a major contributor to the Chicago area’s air quality issues. Green Drives – one of the largest clean-transportation conferences held in the Midwest – is a must-attend event for government officials, commercial and municipal fleet managers, corporate sustainability officers, and clean-tech and clean-energy professionals who want to learn how to use cleaner, lower emissions fuels and technologies, while saving money.

Advanced vehicle technologies, electric vehicles, and alternative fuels will be showcased, including dozens of green vehicles and exhibitors. Attendees not only get a chance to network with experts from throughout the nation and the region, but they learn of first-hand experiences from fleets currently using alternative fuels and electric vehicles. Attendees also get the chance to test drive vehicles of all different sizes.

Sponsorship packages and exhibitor booths for Green Drives are now available. Please contact Joe Koenig to secure your spot TODAY. Stay tuned to our e-blasts and this page for registration details.
