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 have held the first US edition of AutoSens, the world’s premier vehicle perception meeting place? We can’t wait to return to a new venue in 2018.
We work 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.
The American debut of AutoSens was hosted at the brand new M1 Concourse development, near to Pontiac, the perfect venue for petrol heads and self-driving experts alike, 2018 sees us taking over the Michigan Science Centre inspiring curious minds to discover, explore and appreciate science, technology, engineering and math. The event attracts an international audience, Detroit has excellent transport links for both US and global travellers.
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 were very proud and excited to be heading to Michigan for the next US edition of AutoSens.
