Auto Wars

It's not the war among brands, but between old and new ways of marketing. As technology continues to change everything around us, we will discuss the challenges and opportunities that the Automotive Industry faces heading into 2017 and beyond. The car shopping, buying, researching, and selling process is continually being disrupted, and at Motor City West, we will take a look at how all players in the process are using new strategies along with traditional tactics to continue to grow their business. How will Virtual Reality, Autonomous Cars, New Media, and ever-evolving sales tactics impact your company? Find out on October 7 at Motor City West!
