One of the event team’s strategies for the Automotive Intel Summit when it was launched in 2018 was to come up with a list of core topics that define the AIS goals.

The eight topics defined have helped lead the event since its launch, and will once again highlight the event this year.

These topics are: compliance regulations, connectivity, mobility, digital retail, predictive analytics, investing + M&A, fintech solutions and economic forecast.

Sound familiar? That’s because those topics grace many a headline these days!

And that reality is no different on the Cherokee Media Group properties, including Auto Remarketing, SubPrime Auto Finance News, the Auto Fin Journal and more.

See below for a news roundup of some of the latest and most-read stories over the last few months stemming from the Auto Intel Summit core topics.

To explore these topics even further, make sure to join us for AIS 2020, April 14-16 in Raleigh, N.C.
