What our attendees say about AutoTech: Detroit

At this year’s conference, which was the first in a physical format since the outbreak of Covid-19, it was possible to meet the best leading players in the industry, including the car manufacturers, tier 1 suppliers, and a variety of startups and technology companies. It was great to meet everyone in person and the results from a business point of view were just great. The organizing team was simply amazing. The feeling is that they went above and beyond to provide us with an excellent experience, both on a professional and personal level.

I more than recommend the conference and there’s no doubt we will see each other again soon.

Ran Timor, VP of Marketing, Tactile Mobility

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 

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

Amit Ninary, Head of Marketing – Automotive, Vayyar

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!
