Penton’s TU-Automotive has announced the agenda and speaker line-up for TU-Automotive Detroit 2016 (June 8-9, Nov, MI), the world’s largest conference and exhibition dedicated to innovation in automotive technology, covering connected cars, autonomy and mobility.

At TU-Automotive Detroit 2016, the city’s automakers (Ford, General Motors and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles) will join international OEMs such as Jaguar Land Rover, Nissan and Mercedes-Benz to discuss their vision for how the car can become the leading “node” of the Internet of Things.

Leading technology disruptors such as Zipcar, Amazon, Via and Renovo Motors will also take center stage during discussions as the ecosystem widens to embrace new players.

The 80+ session agenda and 150+ speaker line-up can be viewed at TU-Automative

The message of this year’s conference is clear: for automotive to take a leading role within the rapidly expanding connected world, collaboration of efforts, resources and competencies is needed within companies and across the industry.

Gareth Ragg, Managing Director of TU-Automotive, says: “Last year we saw the emergence of three core trends in automotive: connectivity, mobility and autonomy. This year, these are coming together to form one pillar in automotive strategy, connecting with the wider connected world.”

Ragg adds: “As ever, TU-Automotive Detroit provides the place for executives working in this space to uncover new businesses and trends, and network with 3,000 attendees to build the partnerships that will grow their business and influence.”

This year’s TU-Automotive Detroit promises to answer every pressing question facing the industry, including connectivity, ADAS, mobility models, insurance, data, infotainment and more.
