Automotive Intelligence Series Makes its Debut at the Canadian International AutoShow
Auto shows are much more than venues for showcasing the latest production models and concept cars. They are also places where attendees can learn more about the forces that are impacting the automotive landscape and what lies ahead.
With that in mind, the 2018 Canadian International AutoShow is launching the Automotive Intelligence Series, a public education series designed to help provide insight into some of the most important subjects that will shape the future of driving.
From the rapid rise of autonomous technology to the pending legalization of cannabis in Canada and the growing profile of women in the automotive industry, the Automotive Intelligence Series aims to examine, in depth, some of the most pressing issues facing the world of driving now and into the future.
All Automotive Intelligence Series events are included with the purchase of a general admission ticket to the show, which is being held at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre from Feb. 16-25. But those interested in attending must register in advance. Go to https://www.autoshow.ca/automotive-intelligence-series/ and click Register For Event.
The Automotive Intelligence Series will examine a wide variety of important topics through one-hour, moderated panel discussions featuring an array of experts selected specifically for each subject. A number of sessions will also include a question and answer period with audience members.
The panelists include automotive CEOs from carmakers such as Hyundai, Mercedes-Benz and Nissan. Glenn Davis, Safety Manager from the Colorado Department of Transportation, among the first U.S. states to legalize cannabis, and veteran automotive industry analyst Dennis DesRosiers of DesRosiers Automotive Consultants, are among the others who will participate.
The 'Future in Focus' discussion will kick off the series on Industry Day, Friday, Feb. 16, at 10:30 a.m. Auto Trader will partner this opening event that will bring together several of Canada's top automotive leaders to discuss many hot subjects including NAFTA, electrification, autonomous mobility, Canadian consumers' buying patterns and much more.
