August 3, 2010

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Aug. 3 /PRNewswire/ — In response to a fundamental transformation now taking place in the alternative fuel and clean vehicle transportation sector, Gladstein, Neandross & Associates (GNA) announces the launch of the Alternative Clean Transportation “ACT” Expo and confirms dates at the Long Beach Convention and Entertainment Center for April 20-21, 2011. Set in Southern California, the recognized mecca for alternative clean transportation fuels and technology development, ACT Expo will showcase California’s long history and leadership role in the adoption of alternative fuels and clean transportation technologies.

ACT Expo will build upon the long running and iconic “Clean Vehicle Technologies Expo” – an event hosted by the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) for many years – to showcase developments in the alternative fuel and clean transportation technology marketplace. This event will highlight the growing base of fuels and vehicle technologies and will discuss opportunities, challenges, and successes in an interactive format. Substantial space will be dedicated to vehicle displays and technology demonstrations and attendees will be invited to participate in technical site tours to nearby fleet yards, manufacturing facilities, and other locations for a first-hand look at in-use technology, alternative fuel fleet fueling and maintenance facilities, and other real-world operations

Significant progress has been made towards widespread adoption of alternative fuels and clean transportation technologies as a result of federal stimulus funding (ARRA), AB118 funding through the California Energy Commission, and via various programs implemented by the Ports of Los Angeles, Long Beach, SCAQMD, and many other local, state and federal entities. With so many impressive advancements, deployments, and developments occurring right in Southern California, ACT Expo will arrive in Long Beach as the largest and most impressive assembly of vehicles and technologies ever seen in the industry. “This conference reflects the fact that we are undeniably at a pivotal point in the world’s use of energy in the transportation sector,” said Erik Neandross, Chief Executive Officer of GNA. “Original equipment manufacturers and energy suppliers are bringing more alternative fuel and advanced technology products to market over the next 12-24 months than ever before. This event will be ideally timed as these product launches can be showcased in a large-scale event with broad industry-wide appeal.”

The announcement has been well-received industry wide, with confirmed early sponsors reflecting strong interest from variety of clean vehicle technology and alternative fuel sectors.
