From the event site:
Disruptive innovations are taking the world of automotive transportation by storm: from ride sharing, car data tracking and behavioral adjustments, to how vehicles are built, purchased, serviced, insured, navigated, and more. This program presents four visionaries in a fresh and candid discussion about how key trends are unfolding and converging, and their views on how automotive transportation will transform over the next 10 years. Legacy businesses must adapt or die; if it’s not already too late, what strategies should they consider? Where are the greatest opportunities for new innovation, and economic growth?
