Description

Ever wondered what the future of our roads will look like? Well, keep your eyes peeled along the corridor of the M4 next spring and you may just get a glimpse of what the future holds!

tech.driven is set to become a FIRST-of-its-kind event - a 1-day rally from Shoreditch to Swansea, showcasing the most innovative developments in automotive technology. The rally will play host to everything from electric cars and alternative-fuelled vehicles to high-tech supercars. It’s not just a rally to showcase the future of driving, tech.driven is an event to mobilise, share and connect; bringing together future-thinking brands and innovators to have fun, network and show the world the change their driving.

When and where? Drive from the heart of London’s tech scene in Shoreditch to the home of DVLA on Swansea’s internet coast. Complete the one-day course, on 28th July 2018, by checking in at our ‘social pitstops’: 4 iconic destinations along the route. A rally themed breakfast with keynote speakers will set the teams on their way from Shoreditch, with prizes awarded at close in TechHub Swansea. Teams will be awarded for reaching the biggest audience, telling the most engaging stories; and making the most innovative use of their electric power, alternative fuel, AI ‘intelligent’ navigation or other…!

Why now? “Driving technology is changing fast – electric cars and other hybrids could well make up the majority of cars on the U-K’s roads within our lifetimes.” Paul Harwood, Director of TechHub Swansea. With the continuing shift towards green technologies, increased fuel economy and consumer demand for EVs, there’s no better time to showcase innovation, driven by car manufacturers. As the rally is all about getting the latest automotive technology seen by as many people as possible, teams are prepped to make sure they fully engage their social media channels for the occasion. You can follow the teams and their journey on #techdriven18

Who is behind tech.driven? The event is being run by TechHub – the global start-up support hub – in partnership with DVLA. It’s an “opportunity to open people’s eyes to the driving technology that’s already possible, whilst fostering relationships – and be a lot of fun at the same time.” Event coordination is supported by Rally Round, a U-K-based company that organises motoring events all around the world. From the motoring press to the technology blogs and beyond - all eyes will be on tech.driven to see what the future of our roads looks like.

How do I get involved? This is not just an event for those creating the cars of the future, it’s the U-K’s first open-entry tech rally! This event is for any company or individual that puts technology and innovation at its core - that thinks big about the future and how it can change it. Fit the bill?
