The City: Why Detroit?
Detroit is the centre of the American automotive industry, and despite some challenging times in recent history, the region is under a period of strong regeneration and investment. The global automotive sector has undergone a revolution driven by alternative power train and electronics integration. Where else would we hold the first US edition of AutoSens, the world’s premier vehicle perception meeting place?
We are working closely with local OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers, many of who are involved in the Advisory Board as well as building relationships with local and regional government, societies and industry associations, and other stakeholders in the area.
AutoSens will be hosted at the brand new M1 Concourse development, near to Pontiac, and the perfect venue for petrol heads and self-driving experts alike. The event will attract an international audience, Detroit has excellent transport links for both US and global travellers.
In addition, as the home of some of the world’s oldest and most famous car marques, we’ll be lucky to be surrounded by several world class museums and exhibitions, and in true AutoSens style, we’ll be making the most of these displays to enhance your event experience.
Detroit isn’t just the home of car making in the US, it’s also the home of Motown music. Recently the city has received a revitalised downtown area with much more to offer. We are very proud and excited to be in Michigan for the inaugural US edition of AutoSens.
The Venue: M1 Concourse – Detroit, USA
M1 Concourse is an 87-acre playground for auto enthusiasts that includes a secure community of 250+ Private Garages and a state-of-the-art 1.5-mile Performance Track with its own private Motorsports Club. M1 is a place where enthusiasts can keep, show and exercise their vehicles in the company of other fanatics and enjoy unforgettable experiences in a social setting unavailable to people who keep their cars at home or in a traditional storage facility.
Within walking distance, the development plans also include an open-air experiential village of auto-focused retail businesses with year-round entertainment programming open to the public, including car shows, concerts, celebrity speakers, product demonstrations and more.
