The automotive industry faces its biggest change in history. New technology is developed daily, and real-world progress follows at a breathtaking pace. Electric engines and autonomous driving are now state-of-the-art features. Automotive innovation is just now hitting the knee on the exponential curve, yet its business model still needs to finish its transition from century-old tradition to future invention.
Where is Automotive going? How many of today’s 111 car brands will still be relevant and profitable tomorrow? What’s the future of transport on wheels?
Our Automotive Innovation Tour invites all who want to shape the automotive space with fresh, reinvented thinking. We organize this tour around three motivational goals:
1) Get Inspired
Meet and learn from change-leaders in the auto industry — from tech to ideation, from startup to venture capital, from high-tech to community. You’ll have up to five visits every day for three days.
Dealers and customers no longer do business in old auto showrooms and lots. We’ll visit future-minded dealers using a new mindset to evolve customer service and interaction.
3) Turn Into Action: Welcome to Exonomics
We end the tour with a workshop to understand the power of exponential thinking, and transition our newly gained insights into action items.
