Audi of America President Scott Keogh to Deliver Keynote at 2013 Washington Auto Show

The Washington Auto Show®, the automotive industry’s annual public policy show and the largest public show held in Washington, D.C., is pleased to announce that Scott Keogh, President of Audi of America, will be delivering the keynote address at the Newsmaker Breakfast on Thursday, Jan. 31.

Keogh, president of Audi of America, is a leader in the charge for cleaner, more efficient engines, increased fuel economy and national energy independence. The Newsmaker Breakfast, part of the show’s Public Policy Days, will follow the “Affordable Mobility: The Future of Transportation and Energy Efficiency” Summit, to be held at Capitol Hill and sponsored by The National Journal.

In keeping with the theme of the Summit and Public Policy days – the focus on long term energy efficiency and environmental sustainability for the automotive industry – Keogh’s address will highlight the strides and advances made by Audi in clean engine technologies and will speak to clean diesel and other technology topics to raise awareness and accelerate policy discussions on these new automotive frontiers.

“We are proud to be showcasing our latest products and technology at The Washington Auto Show,” said Keogh, and added, “We are especially proud of our recently announced additions to our TDI clean diesel line up: an A8, A7, A6, and a Q5 will be offered as TDI versions for drivers seeking to save at the pump, for a nation seeking to free itself from the grip of foreign oil, for a society seeking smart ways to cut greenhouse gases, and for a world seeking truly sustainable mobility.”

Audi, which is among the most successful luxury automotive brands globally, will also participate in this year’s show as part of the inaugural Luxury Showcase, which will house the latest models from 11 luxury carmakers. The Luxury Showcase will be located on the first level of the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.

“This show is dedicated to highlighting the technologies that are shaping our industry’s future and the companies that are leading the way in sustainability, fuel efficiency and smarter engines,” says Washington Auto Show Chairman Robert Fogarty. “Audi, with its innovative advances in alternative fuel technologies and new vision for energy independence, is a great example for policy makers and media professionals of the automotive industry’s commitment to environmentally sustainable and affordable mobility solutions.”

The Newsmaker Breakfast is sponsored by Washington Automotive Press Association (WAPA), the professional association dedicated to improving communication between automotive journalists in the Baltimore-Washington area and the automotive industry, regulators, and other related groups and the International Motor Press Association Based in the New York area, IMPA is the country’s oldest organization of automotive journalists and public relations professionals of the world’s major automotive manufacturers and suppliers.
