Automotive Intelligence Summit Call for Speakers

Only 1 Week Left to Submit for the Auto Intel Summit 2019 Call for Speakers

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.

If you have any questions or thoughts about the AIS 2019 Call for speakers, please feel free to reach out to myself, Content Director of AIS, at

2019 Automotive Intelligence Summit Call For Speakers Seeks Leaders in Fintech & Digital Retailing

Artificial intelligence and machine learning. Connected vehicle services. Vehicle intelligence. The potential of big data. Predictive modeling in auto finance. The future of cybersecurity. Does this pique your interest. Are you an expert or leader in one of these areas?

These topics and more will be covered at the second annual Auto Intelligence Summit — which has just opened its Call For Speakers.

Last year, the event held in Raleigh, N.C., featured industry leaders on the edge of innovation, such as Fair, LotLinx, Experian,  FICO, DRN, KAR Auction Services and more.

And this year — as we head once again to Raleigh, N.C. to the Crabtree Mariott, July 23-25 — we are looking to the newest and brightest horizons, and minds, in auto tech, the way we buy and sell cars, the changing retail model and more.

An opportune location — the annual gathering of thought leaders from across the auto industry will convene just minutes away from one of the most quickly growing research and tech hubs on the east coast — the Research Triangle Park.

Do you have insights to help answer the most important questions about the future of auto? Don’t miss the chance to speak at the Auto Intel Summit. 

Knowledge is power. And in crafting Auto Intel Summit 2019, we aim to ensure you walk out of the Marriott doors with not only actionable insights for your business, but also a perspective on where the industry is headed, what your company’s role might be, and what the next evolution of auto will look like.

And if you think you play a role in reaching that goal via the AIS 2019 stage as a speaker or panelist — we want to hear from you! The Call for Speakers will be open until April 22. But don’t wait to send your submission in — slots for the three-day event are expected to fill quickly!

There’s no doubt about it. The auto industry is on the cusp of serious change. Think digital retailing. The changing face of auto dealerships and wholesale channels. Evolving consumer behavior trends. Ride-sharing and vehicle subscription trends. Where will the buck stop, and what will your next customer want?

Join us this July in discussing, dissecting — and answering — the auto industry’s most pertinent and pressing questions at AIS 2019.
