Where there is connectivity, commerce isn't far behind. From paying tolls, parking, buying movies and music subscriptions, map upgrades, and other "soft" goods, all the way to pre-ordering pizza or oil changes and in-car advertising based on location or context, the car industry is ready to look at the revenue opportunities created by connecting cars to the cloud.
Join 75+ autotech experts who are either looking for opportunities in the segment or offering innovation solutions to discuss the early opportunities in connected car commerce at this half day meeting. Expect plenty of carmakers, Tier 1 vendors, and entrepreneurs, a few presentations from companies leading the way and a bunch of startup pitches on products you haven't seen yet.
The Autotech Council opens its doors to non-members a few times each year to take a deep dive into a segment of the auto industry that is attracting large amounts of innovation and investment. These ½-day, executive-format agendas highlight a few larger vendors who are leading the segment forward and bring dozens of undiscovered companies to the stage as well. These agendas always include plenty of time for networking, business discussions, and an interactive format that promotes relationships between member and non-member companies.
This meeting is free for Autotech Council members, open to non-members for a $200 fee, and Rapid Fire Demo Slots are available during registration to companies who can show off new solutions serving up In-Car Commerce.

The Autotech Developer Challenge will give developers the ability to show off their innovative work, and provide our members the opportunity to engage with them and work together as potential partners and customers.
This month’s member meeting will be conducted at the Autotech Developer Challenge and will include a discussion exploring app and service possibilities in the automotive space, demos and coding presentations, and networking with the developers and supporting OEMs.
The Autotech Developer Challenge is a fun, interactive way to support the development community and find great new apps by leveraging the technical skills and ingenuity of 3rd party developers. The Developer Challenge format creates a competition full of excitement and nail-biting action; and an opportunity to engage with potential partners and customers.
This Developer Challenge will bring in developers on the leading edge of automotive and connected car applications to work with OEM and Tier 1 engineers and demo their expertise. This will be a select group of pre-screened developers working professionally in the field creating high-quality apps and services.
Autotech Council members will kick-off the Developer Challenge with a member meeting about the developer tools that are currently available and the industry's unmet needs; the hack then takes place all day Friday and Saturday (October 10/11) and finishes with judging, awards, and prizes.
We'll start the meeting by getting your input on the type of apps you would like to see developers create in these areas:
While many of the developers have existing apps or services, they will also want to hear directly from you about the most important areas for your company to guide their work.
This meeting is for members only, free to attend, and closed to the public and media. Select media may be invited to the judging segment on Saturday October 11.
The Telematics West Coast Conference & Exhibition 2014 (Oct 30-31, Hilton, San Diego, USA) will discuss the future of content & services in the connected car. The speaker line-up includes Mercedes-Benz, Ford, Volkswagen, Nissan, Harman, Jaguar Land Rover, and more.
The fifth annual gathering will tackle how to leverage data to personalize the auto customer experience and the opportunities and challenges facing seamlessly embedding the car in the connected lifestyle.
