We’re excited! Nope, we aren’t jumping the gun to look toward spring quite yet … even though it’s tempting, now that February has arrived.

Instead, we are looking forward to next week — when AIS 2020 will be revealing this year’s agenda, with a lineup of already confirmed speakers to start off the march toward warmer months.

Thinking it’s a bit early? Think again! If you’ve been following AIS blog posts and news throughout 2019 and the beginning of this year, you will have learned that the Auto Intel Summit 2020, in Raleigh, N.C., is being held earlier in the year — April 14-16th.

Yep, for the third year of the event focused on the latest in fintech solutions, digital retailing for auto, and more, you won’t have to bring an extra set of undershirts (we know how July in central N.C. can get!)

AIS Early Bird Registration is open until March 1. Save $400 off of on-site registration!

The AIS 2020 agenda is already shaping up to be a high-level discussion that involves leaders poised to provide insight and strategies on mobility, connectivity, digital retailing, fintech solutions, investment and M&A in the auto sector and more.

Here is a sneak peak of a few of the topics on tap for the AIS 2020 content lineup: 

  • Leading the Auto-Finance Business into the Next Decade
  • The Perception and Reality for EVs in 2025
  • Car Dealers + Ride Sharing + Tech = Growth & Profits
  • Bridging the Gap Between Digital Marketing & Digital Retailing
  • The Auto Intel Council Explores the Edge of Auto Innovation
  • New Leaders in Fintech Dissect the New Decade
