The 10th annual Green Transportation Summit & Expo (GTSE) is the region's premier clean transportation convening event. There has not been a time when clean transportation has had as much potential. With this year's theme of Reflecting + Refocusing on a Resilient Future, we are giving particular attention to recent events affecting our communities and livelihood. We will be creating space to ensure these critical topics are addressed.

The GTSE focuses on the clean fleet at the intersection of policy, technology, practice, equity, and the future of mobility with a regional focus and national lens.

Our partnership with the U.S. EPA's West Coast Collaborative and Mobilize California Summit brings stakeholders key to reducing heavy-duty diesel reductions in significant fleets across the continent. Fleet technician training and general educational opportunities with information-packed sessions and seminars tailored to clean transportation professionals help ensure that our audience and the topics addressed are valuable, making this conference an essential event for regional and national stakeholders.

GTSE routinely boasts fleet professionals' most robust gathering in the clean fuels industry, with more than half the conference attendees representing fleet management, operations, and maintenance from corporate, municipal, and private fleets. The GTSE situates clean transportation stakeholders and advocates directly in front of influencers, decision-makers, and on-the-ground movers and shakers who are working to reduce emissions and lower costs for today and tomorrow's transportation options.

GTSE takes the safety of its exhibitors, sponsors, partners, speakers, and attendees very seriously. As the situation with COVID-19 is changing daily, we are closely monitoring the response by healthcare and government officials so we can ensure the protection of all our stakeholders. We will continue to update our sponsors & exhibitors as changes are made.
