Technology in Motion Expo, Conference to Launch in Detroit Next Fall


A new automotive technology exposition and conference, called Technology in Motion, will take place in Detroit from Sept. 6-8, 2017, at Cobo Center.

Geared towards the OEM, supplier, and technology communities, Technology in Motion, presented in part by Detroit-based business process outsourcing company MSX International, will cover technological advancements in autonomous vehicles, connected cars, mobility solutions, and propulsion systems.

The event will also focus on reaffirming the state of Michigan and Detroit as an automotive technology hub; providing a forum for the growing interest in connectivity, autonomous vehicles, and mobility solutions; increasing recruitment efforts in the automotive sector; and stimulating increased capital and technology investments in the region.

A one-day preview event for the exposition and conference will be held on Dec. 9 in the General Motors Auditorium at the College for Creative Studies, A. Alfred Taubman Center for Design Education, located at 460 West Baltimore Ave. in Detroit.

The event will feature speakers such as Mike Ableson, vice president of strategy and global portfolio planning at GM; Matthew Simoncini, president, director, and CEO of Lear Corp.; Christopher Thomas, founder and partner of Fontinalis Partners; Dan Gilbert, chairman and founder of Quicken Loans; and more.

“To have the participation of such prominent sponsors and supporters from the automotive and technology community confirms the importance of this growing industry topic,” says David Graff, global vice president of Retail Network Solutions Sales for MSX International.
