The Pennsylvania Automated Vehicle Summit planning committee has kept a close eye on the situation in Pennsylvania and across the country regarding COVID-19. After deep consideration, we have decided it is in everyone’s best interest to postpone the 2020 summit that was scheduled for later this year.

We did not come to this decision lightly, but with the uncertainty surrounding the re-opening of our state and the extent to which social distancing will continue to be a part of our lives, it seemed the prudent choice to make.

We are pleased, however, to let you know that we’ve already negotiated to hold the 2021 PA AV Summit at the same location – the Pittsburgh Marriott City Center – next October 25-27, 2021.

We plan to continue the ever-evolving discussion on automated and connected vehicles through a variety of means over the next year-and-a-half until we can see you all again at our next summit. To be kept in the loop, be sure to check our website – PAAVSummit.org – regularly, and follow our new LinkedIn page.

For those of you who have submitted abstracts to participate in the 2020 summit, we will hold on to your suggestions for future programs.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out at ra-pdhavsummit@pa.gov.
