2022 Call for Speakers

Insights for Automotives Future

Technology and digitization have continued to change how consumers approach the car buying experience. Along with evolving technological amenities, such as connectivity and greater use of electric/hybrid vehicles, the automotive industry is repeatedly on the edge of innovation.

The tech renaissance has also impacted the B2B applications of automotive, including the wholesale remarketing of vehicles and the finance mechanisms behind auto retail.

The Auto Intel Summit will examine the innovation and digitization in the retail, finance, and remarketing segments of automotive— including regulatory considerations, the role of the investment community, B2B and B2C applications of such tech developments – and more!

If you are someone that can deliver relevant insights –

Here’s what we want:

  • Solutions, not a sales pitch!
  • Fresh, original insights
  • New, never-before-seen presentations
