    The Electric Drive Transportation Association's 2014 conference and expo is in Indianapolis, IN the early part of next week:
    EDTA Conference 2014

    This looks like mainly a business-to-business trade-show, with the big existing auto manufacturers, new/existing suppliers, and government and private organizations discussing PHEV and EV vehicles, components, market, etc.

    Tesla is notably absent from any part of the conference/expo -- call it the elephant not in the room.

    There is a "Ride, Drive, & Charge" area with several PHEVs and a few EVs available for test drives. Again, no Model S to be found, at least in an official capacity, there. Also disappointed that Ford is bringing their PHEV Ford Fusion and C-MAX vehicles, but choosing to not bring their Focus Electric BEV which is available all over the USA. (Disclaimer -- I'm leasing an FFE, hence the interest)
