ZOE Treffen 2020 abgesagt

7. Österreichisches ZOE Treffen


22. – 24. Mai 2020

Bregenz, Vorarlberg




Dear friends,

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic disease we are forced to cancel the ZOE Treffen 2020!!

The current situation doesn’t allow any further planning or organization of our event. For this reason we had to cancel the ZOE Treffen 2020.
We don’t know yet, if we will be able to set up an alternative date later this year. We will keep you informed on this.

CAUTION: Don’t forget to cancel your hotel bookings!
Our „Clubhotel“ Hotel IBIS Bregenz offers cancelling free of charge until March 31st 2020!


The club board members of ZOE Club Austria wishes you all the best in this crisis  – bleibt’s gsund! (~ stay healthy!)

Thomas FM, Fritz M, Alex K, Siegi W, Stephan H, Thomas B


In 2020 we will visit our westernmost state of Vorarlberg, which stands out for its excellent work in the field of e-mobility.
This topic was promoted very early on and e-vehicles, charging infrastructure and car sharing were supported. We invite all electricians to attend our meeting with their vehicles. The vehicle brand doesn’t matter. The more colorful the mixture, the more beautiful the picture!

As a special challenge, we would like to welcome electric vehicles from as many European countries as possible this year.
We will show you the current registration status on a map and hope for many green spots on the map.



Times are still being entered, 1 program points are still to be partially fixed.
There may be changes accordingly.


 Monday, 18.05. to Wednesday, 20.05.2020   

Enjoy the region – at your own discretion

We will pass on recommendations from the region again. A list and information about any existing discounts can be found here later and also in the manual.

The border triangle, Vorarlberg and Lake Constance offer a lot to discover and experience.

Sustainability has also found its way into vehicle manufacturers. In her lecture, Patrizia Ilda Valentini shows us how Renault takes care of this important topic in production, in operation and also after the use of vehicles.

How is sustainable production made? What changes in work processes? Can you continue to use batteries after living in the car? Are they recycled? What else can you do? What is Renault’s goal?

We hope for many answers on the subject.
