Automotive Conference - Detroit
IHS Markit is presenting the Automotive Conference in Detroit, Michigan on September 9, 2015.
The Rocky Road to Growth - Finding the right path forward in volatile times
While the overall global economic and automotive outlook is positive, many underlying factors remain in a state of flux. The fall in crude oil prices has helped and harmed many countries and industries; emerging markets have lost their appeal; China is growing more slowly; Western Europe and Japan are tackling emissions legislation, aging work forces, and large sovereign debt positions; and the United States is bracing for new monetary policies, higher interest rates, and tightening CAFE standards. Our Fall Conference will provide the insights you need to navigate the uncertainty and turmoil.
The morning plenary session will feature a macro-economic overview and global outlook for demand and production. We will also hear about "Big Data" from our Keynote speaker, Paul Ballew, Global Chief Data & Analytics Officer, Ford. In the afternoon we will breakout into five focused sessions:
- Connected Car
- Commercial Vehicles
- The Aftermarket
- Scenarios and Sustainability
