Have You Seen The Headlines?

Have you seen the audiotainment announcements from Apple, Nissan, Ford, Livio, Aha!, and Mazda in the last couple of weeks? It's moving fast out there! DASH, the connected car conference set for October 23-24 in Detroit, is your opportunity to collaborate and network with a unique group of broadcasters, car companies, automotive suppliers, streaming radio providers, advertising agencies and car dealers to innovate tomorrow's audiotainment offerings -- before tomorrow becomes today!

A keynote from Julius Marchwiki, Ford's head of global product management for SYNC AppLink, will launch a lively day and a half of panels with leading experts, hosted radio show style! Each major session also includes an audience roundtable: You'll be able to collaborate, gain new perspectives, and take home the latest solutions and revenue opportunities for your business. And if you miss it, you've missed it -- roundtable conversations will not be recorded.
On The Agenda
* What do consumers think about their new audiotainment options, how do they actually use them, and what do they want next? Get the first look at brand-new consumer research from Edison Research (developed specially for DASH), followed by a discussion with experts from JD Power, Magneti Marelli, and Listener Driven Radio -- and more.

* What are the practical challenges and opportunities of delivering audio content in the connected vehicle today and tomorrow? Get the inside scoop from Toyota, Clear Channel, Pandora, Panasonic, and other pros on how they built their solutions and where they're going next; learn from your favorite Detroit air talents about developing compelling content for the connected car; and hear from Aha! and Ford about the partnerships they just announced last week!

* Where are the dollars headed, and how can you best position yourself in the evolving automotive audiotainment ecosystem? A special session hosted by the RAB will bring together experts from the advertising, investing, and automotive dealer communities to share their ideas about how business models are evolving and how to catch the wave.
