When was the last time you had an opportunity to sit down with broadcasters, car companies, automotive suppliers, streaming radio providers, advertising agencies, record labels, aftermarket suppliers, and car dealers to think about how today’s rapidly evolving automotive platforms impact your business? DASH features Panels moderated by radio show hosts who know how to keep it lively, SolveIt! roundtables and OpenMic sessions to ensure that every attendee is part of the conversation, and engaging media personalities who’ll help you take a fresh look at where we’re going next.

What are consumers actually doing with these new systems? What’s coming next? How do our business models need to change? A few of the topics we’ll be discussing:

· It’s All About the Experience. How do we need to partner to build tomorrow’s user experiences? How will consumers interact with content and services as they drive… and beyond?

· Direct-to-Dashboard Commerce. Now that we’ve got a connected computer on board, mobile commerce has come full circle from in-dash radios, to smartphones and back to the dash again. How will dashboard commerce work? What are the opportunities?

· Future of Mobility. The way we get around today may be very different tomorrow, especially in dense urban areas. Connected and Automated vehicles, vehicle sharing, alternative transit and more are all growing in popularity in the major metropolitan areas. How will this impact the way we interact with consumers?

· Data Into Dollars. We’ve got access to vehicle data, driving data, listener data, and traveler data. How do we make it actionable? What are the issues and limitations? What’s now possible with location-based cross-platform consumer interactions?
