AuSM launches Automotive Intelligence Summit


Technology is evolving at an exciting pace.

Artificial intelligence. Blockchain. Mobile e-commerce. Ride sharing.

They’re not fictional. If they’re not already being utilized at your company, they’re being incubated.

Bearing that in mind, AuSM is launching the Automotive Intelligence Summit (AIS), which will be held July 24-26, 2018 at the Raleigh Marriott Crabtree Valley in Raleigh, N.C.

The Automotive Intelligence Summit (AIS) 2018 is delivering the opportunity to connect with leading minds who are involved within the automotive, auto finance and transportation-related industries.

AIS 2018 is an executive-level meeting designed for C-suite leaders who desire access to the best intelligence, data and analysis available.

Core content topics of AIS 2018 will include:

  • Predictive Analytics
  • Transportation Research & Insights
  • Connected Mobility
  • Economic Forecasts & Market Assessments
  • Fintech
  • Disruptors
  • Investment Capital
  • Mergers & Acquisitions
  • Compliance & Regulations

“AIS ’18 will focus on content and intel in areas where we are strongest- in the dynamic used car and auto finance markets and will look beyond those core areas to enhance and grow in sectors critical to executives at the top level of the OEM’s, dealerships, banks, finance companies, fleet, lease, rental, suppliers and more,” said Bill Zadeits, president of AuSM.

As an aggregator of the top industry minds, AIS 2018 will provide attendees an experience packed with powerful insights, information and knowledge that can make a significant impact on their business planning and success.

AIS 2018 organizers are leveraging experience and relationships from a wide swath of the automotive, financial and technology sectors to deliver a unique, three-day event that will give attendees a better understanding not only of what’s happening now, but also what’s ahead to keep you and your firm ahead of the technological curve.

Among the confirmed speakers is Lonnie Miller, Principal Industry Consultant for the automotive sector at SAS.

He focuses on market opportunities and risks with emerging technology and competitive market dynamics in the auto industry while advising how to leverage analytical approaches to improve connected vehicle, smart mobility and customer experience strategies.

Prior to joining SAS, Lonnie held a variety of senior leadership roles with R. L. Polk & Co. (now IHS Markit). This included leading company’s Loyalty Management Practice, their Marketing and Industry Analysis unit and the company’s Analytical Solutions team.
