Announcing Our 2016 CD Show Keynote Speaker: Mark Thompson (Published 07/2016)

Come be inspired by our dynamic and engaging Keynote Speaker, Mark C. Thompson, at the 2016 Chauffeur Driven Show this October 9-12 in Washington, D.C. The Keynote, sponsored by Grech Motors and Mosaic Global Transportation, is scheduled for Monday, October 10 at 2:45 pm.

But like George Washington, we cannot tell a lie: For our show in Washington, D.C., which will be held October 9-12, we’ve taken everything that made our first “road trip” show special and made it even better in 2016. Thanks to the input of our Show and Education committees and the generosity our sponsors, which include Title Sponsors Ford-Lincoln Limousine and Livery Vehicles and Grech Motors, we’ve been able to up the ante and add new workshops and events, revamp old favorites, and make our nightlife even more exciting.
