Auto Intel Summit Registration

Back to Business — Exploring the Next Steps for Auto at AIS 2020

As borders continue to open, and Governors ease COVID-19 restrictions across the country, the Auto Intel Summit is looking toward late summer — and reconnecting with the event’s audience of industry leaders, auto innovators — and those taking the industry into the future.

That said, Cherokee Media Group is closely following concerns, regulations and updates on the COVID-19 pandemic. And our team is aware this news is evolving daily. (For those following the impact on the auto biz, the latest industry updates can be found here covered by Auto Remarketing.)

This year, on top of implementing a layered approach to health and safety precautions for the event set for August 17-19, AIS will also be offering registration for the on-site event at one flat rate this year, as well as a virtual option, which provides access to streaming keynotes and general sessions. Both registrations include access to on-demand workshops for 30 days following the event, as well.

The site of AIS 2020, the Raleigh Crabtree Valley Marriott.

“We are taking a layered approach to attendee safety, taking into account Cherokee Media Group’s standards, the Marriott’s policies and speaker and partner best practices, as well,” said Marilu McQuilkin, Senior Director, Events & Marketing, for Cherokee Media Group. “Our ultimate goal is to help our attendees and AIS participants feel comfortable and bring peace-of-mind to attending live events again.”

Here are some of the precautions Marriott and the Cherokee Media Group will be taking to ensure the health and safety of all participants in AIS 2020:

  • Frequent cleaning and sanitizing across the event venue throughout the three days, and between sessions, especially doorknobs, table tops, speaker mics, bathrooms, etc.
  • Allow for social distancing best practices, including widening aisles and providing adequate space between seats during sessions and for any areas where attendees will congregate
  • Provide convenient sanitization stations throughout the venue space
  • Food service modifications, including providing single-serve meals, and employee manned coffee and drink stations.
  • Issue best practices to attendees, including wearing masks, no shaking of hands and more logistics — prior to the event dates. Speakers and product demonstrators will also receive outlined instructions.
  • Efforts to limit touch points upon event arrival and registration
  • Access to information about rapid health service and medical aid

Once we get to mid-August, it’s also important for the CMG team, as well as any attendee, speaker or sponsor, to stop and do a health check, before attending the on-site event in Raleigh, N.C. The N.C. Department of Health and Human Services’ “Check my Symptoms” tool helps you check your symptoms online and determine if you will be recommended to be tested for COVID-19.

Save $100 More Off Early Bird Rates for Auto Intel Summit 2020 through End of Year

If you are anything like me and the team at the Auto Intelligence Summit, then you like to plan ahead. We get it. And that’s why we are launching registration for this spring’s Auto Intel Summit 2020 before the ball drops on a new year and a new decade.

Yep, that’s right — we know many of you want to get a head start on planning your year before you are toasting to the New Year!

Attendees at the Automotive Intelligence Summit, July 23-25, 2019, at the Marriott in Raleigh, NC.

Registration is open for AIS 2020, April 14-16 in Raleigh, N.C., and you early — really early — folks will be saving $100 more off Early Bird rates. This special rate to close out 2019 ends on Dec. 31, so make sure to reserve your spot before the holiday madness begins (and you forget your own name, let along what you’ll be doing in April).

Take advantage of the rate open today though the end of the year, and you save a total of $500 off on-site registration for AIS 2020.

So, what’s in store for 2020 attendees? Our Call for Speakers for AIS 2020 opened last month, and the team at AIS can’t wait to start forming next year’s agenda.

But in the meantime, here are a few notes, links and highlights to give you a taste of what Auto Intel Summit attendees will be privy to come April at the Marriott Crabtree Valley in North Carolina’s capitol city:

  • A star-studded attendee list: Our public attendee list from 2019 offers an insiders look at the makeup of AIS 2020, including name, company and title of attendees, spanning the auto industry’s leading companies, OEMs, fintech startups, digital retailing front-runners and more. An exclusive, password protected version of this list is also provided to attendees post-event, including contact information to expand your networking opportunities.
  • Expert speakers: Last year, AIS welcomed over 50 speakers, including leaders from legacy companies such as Deloitte and EY, as well as new innovators like digital retailing companies MotoInsight and CarNow. This year, once again, AIS will invite leaders in fintech, digital retailing, mobility, connectivity and more, to the stage in April.
  • Relevant presentations, focused on key trends: Now you’ve taken a look at the type of speakers that make it to onto the AIS agenda. But do you need a taste of the content to make that big decision to register? See here for presentations from the 2019 event, covering topics like AI in auto loans and collections, mobility services, the value of data analytics, the evolution of the auto consumer and more!
  • New programs designed to drive innovation: Last year, at AIS,  we launched the Emerging 8 program, implemented by AIS and sister publication the Auto Fin Journal, and designed to honor new companies that aim to improve a specific aspect or aspects of the auto-financing process through technology. The honorees are required to be in the early growth phases and making waves in the fintech industry. The 2020 group will be recognized once again at AIS 2020, and the team has other new offerings in store for attendees, as well!

Stay tuned to as we reveal more about the fresh offerings at AIS 2020, and look forward to kicking off a new decade of auto innovation.
