What Was Said About 2022…

We were very satisfied with the quality of the leads and meetings generated at the event.

Amit Ninary, Head of Marketing – Automotive, Vayyar

As a small start up, working with Informa to gain access to the AutoTech: Detroit conference was extremely valuable. We were able to attend numerous sessions and learn about high priorities and concerns throughout the industry. There were wonderful opportunities to connect with panel participants and meet with other innovative companies trying to bring meaningful solutions to the space. I highly recommend allocating the time to attend!

Syed Mubeen Saifullah, COO, Aiden Automotive Technologies 

I thought it was a really positive event, great to see more people, a full show floor, a robust line-up of speakers and topics – In short a great step in return to a bit of normalcy. Very well organized and our panel speakers enjoyed the experience – Thanks!

John Wilkerson, Senior Communications Manager, Corporate Communications, ZF
