Automakers and others are transforming the automotive industry with new vehicle technologies.
As the technology becomes increasingly sophisticated, it’s crucial that automotive repair shops are up to speed on the latest trends and policy updates and interact with top industry policymakers.
The Automotive Service Association, in conjunction with the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers, is providing shops “an incredible learning opportunity” focusing on the latest trends during its Sixth Annual Technology & Telematics Forum on Sept. 12 in Troy, Michigan.
The “What’s Next” forum will include speakers from major automakers, insurers, the automotive aftermarket, Mitchell 1, Turo, asTech, Mobile Auto Solutions and other industry leaders.
“The forum will have speakers on the latest trends in automotive technology, data access and cybersecurity,” said Bob Redding, ASA’s Washington, D.C., representative. “If you own a mechanical or collision repair facility, you and your team will want to attend this forum.”
In addition, other panel discussions will include:
- “What’s at Stake for Me with These New Technologies?”
- “What’s New and what Should I be Preparing for?”
- “Data Access and Cybersecurity Solutions”
Kicking off the forum will be Debra Bezzina, who has more than 30 years of experience in the automotive industry and has worked for GM and Ford. Currently, she is the Connected Working Group lead for Mcity and the U.S. Department of Transportation’s managing director of the Center for Connected and Automated Transportation at the University of Michigan.
