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. Detroit has the dual advantage of its history and future potential. Over the last 5 years we’ve seen a real growth in innovation, start ups and new technology from the area supported by initiatives such as TechStars.
These recent developments combined with the scale of the existing automotive expertise in the region makes it the perfect melting pot for discussions driving the future of automotive product development. And the cars, of course, where better for a petrol head to spend time away from home! There’s a strong spirit here into Detroit that we are tap into, as well as hopefully bringing a little AutoSens inspiration of our own, and we’ve felt very welcomed each time we’ve visited.
