Connectivity is changing the face the automotive industry. It has led to automakers evolving from humble carmakers to serious technology companies. What’s more, due to connectivity, industries as diverse as health and Silicon Valley’s web and hardware giants have unequivocally turned their attention to the vehicle. Against this backdrop of change, Telematics Detroit 2014 is the world’s largest event dedicated to telematics and the connected car. It will bring together over 2000 senior execs from across the automotive, software, consumer electronics, data and web industries to discuss the business and technology behind the future of the connected car.

Telematics Detroit, event director, Gareth Ragg stated, “The conference has been growing with the connected car industry for the past 13 years, but this year’s conference is different. No longer is the discussion about simply bringing connectivity to the car.” He continued, “Telematics Detroit 2014 marks the true entrance of the car as a serious player in the wider connected world. The final discount on tickets ends this Friday and the networking app for booking meetings at the event is released next week, so now is the time to book to get the most out of Telematics Detroit 2014.”
