Electric vehicles, dock-less scooters, autonomous trucks, ride-hailing apps and the AI that fuels them all — it’s a world of transportation that even a visionary like Leonardo Da Vinci could scarcely imagine. On October 6-7, modern-day visionaries from around the world will gather virtually for TC Sessions: Mobility 2020.

This is your chance to channel your inner Da Vinci and save $100 in the process. Early-bird pricing ends in just three days — buy your pass before the deadline expires on September 11 at 11:59 p.m. (PT).

We’re excited about a new event this year — Pitch Night. If you’d like to be considered for one of only 10 spots in this competition, submit an application here before September 15.

We’ll choose 10 early-stage mobility startups to deliver a one-minute pitch to a panel of judges on the night of October 5. Only five will move on to the final round to pitch again the following day, October 6, live from Mobility 2020’s Main Stage. We’re talking exposure to thousands of attendees, press, industry leaders and VCs.

If you want to succeed, you need to stay on top of the latest trends in mobility, and that’s no small order in a fast-moving industry. Here are just two examples of the many speakers and topics we have to keep you informed. Check out the event agenda here.

The Road to the All-Electric Air: Just weeks after Lucid Motors unveils its long-anticipated all-electric luxury Air sedan, we’ll sit down with CEO Peter Rawlinson to discuss the challenges of building a car company and assembling that first production vehicle as well as plans for the future.

Building an AV Startup: Ike co-founder and chief engineer Nancy Sun will share her experiences in the world of automation and robotics, a ride that has taken her from Apple to Otto and Uber before she set off to start a self-driving truck company. Sun will discuss what the future holds for trucking and the challenges and the secrets behind building a successful mobility startup.

CrunchMatch, our AI-enhanced platform, makes connecting with attendees and expanding your network easier and faster. It also helps you stay organized and on schedule. When you register for Mobility 2020, simply answer a few quick questions about your business preferences and you’ll be automatically registered for CrunchMatch — and you’ll receive an email telling you how and when to access the platform.

Early bird pricing disappears on September 11 at 11:59 p.m. (PT). Buy your pass now and save. We think Da Vinci would approve.
