Each week, for a few months now, I’ll take a look at the back-end of the Automotive Intelligence Summit website to check out the call-for-speakers submissions for this year’s event — scheduled for July 23-25 at the Crabtree Valley Marriott in Raleigh, N.C.
And just about every week so far, each contact form export brings with it even bigger names in the industry and more relevant topics to our audience. Taking a look at submissions so far, here’s a glimpse into some of the topics top of mind for potential AIS 2019 speakers: mobile and APIs and the impact on fintech, disrupting traditional auto sales and leasing, digital retailing, biometrics and more.
BUT — my weekly tradition might be on the way out shortly. The call for speakers for Auto Intel Summit 2019 ends Monday, April 22. That’s right. You only have one more week to throw the best idea you have our way.

We know you likely have your ideas lined up — and we are hoping you are ready to send them our way this week — but in case you need inspiration …. we gave an outline of our already confirmed speakers here.
The list includes names like MotoInsight CEO Andrew Tai; Ryan Bachman, SVP Global Chief Information Security Officer, GM Financial; Mary Ross, President of Californians for Consumer Privacy, and former CIA Counterintelligence Officer and Counsel on the House Intelligence Committee — among many others.
But — there’s more. Between the time that post was published just weeks ago, we have a couple of new highlights to share with you:
- The North Carolina Automobile Dealers Association (NCADA) is partnering with AIS in its second year. Stay tuned for more details on this new development!
- Jason McCarter, Partner at Eversheds Sutherland, will be speaking on the topic of the legal issues of selling online.
So, you think you’d like to find yourself among these leaders in auto? Do you have something to say about Digital Retail and Fintech? Those are two of our main focuses this year.
And moving beyond these two topics, we have 8 core focuses that always drive the progress of the Auto Intel Summit: Compliance regulations, connectivity, mobility, mergers & acquisitions, predictive analytics, investment capital, fintech solutions and economic forecasts.
