Audi’s House of Progress makes its North American debut in Montréal from October 13-16 at Cirque Éloize, Montréal’s first train station. The exhibition has recently travelled to Tokyo, São Paolo and Milan, and is intended to present Audi’s vision for the future of premium mobility through “an immersive consumer experience that highlights the brand’s complete EV lineup, showcases Audi’s grandsphere concept car, and depicts Audi’s forward-thinking commitment to sustainability”. This complimentary ticketed event will walk guests through the evolution of the brand’s rich history of performance and design, and will look ahead to Audi’s “forward-thinking progression to digitization and sustainability.”
“The Audi House of Progress is a platform to spark meaningful conversations with thought leaders about our passion for progress and our vision for the future of premium mobility,” said Audi Canada President Vito Paladino. “Progress seen and felt through our evolution of performance as we build sustainable concepts, partnerships and initiatives.”
During its time in Montreal, House of Progress will bring together thought-leaders across multiple disciplines, practices and verticals, to share their visions on how progress can drive change. These panel discussions start on October 14th and run daily. Panellists include Nino Di Cara, Founder and President of Electric Autonomy Canada who will report on insights about Canada’s transition to electric vehicles and the future of transportation. Byron & Dexter Peart, Montreal natives and co-founders of the curated marketplace, GOODEE also join the stage. The Pearts will share their commitment to sustainability through designing essential homewares and lifestyle products driven by the desire to create a smarter, kinder and more beautiful world.
Other panellists include Omar Gandhi, Canadian architect and founder of an award-winning modern architecture studio, and Dan Climan, Montréal-born artist known for making artwork that mixes digitalism with nostalgia. Joining the conversation, Spencer Reeder, Director of Government Affairs and Sustainability at Audi of America, will share his perspective on what progress means to Audi.
The House of Progress will also present Audi’s grandsphere concept car for the first time in Canada. The second in a series of visionary concept cars, the grandsphere “provides a glimpse of how tomorrow’s first-class automotive comfort will look: electric, automated, and intuitive, providing self-driving luxury at its finest.”
The House of Progress is one of many steps Audi is taking in its dedication to going electric. By 2025, the brand plans to have a portfolio of more than 20 all-electric models that when charged with green electricity, emit zero carbon.
