AutoTech Connect
September 5, 2019 , Silicon Valley, CA

This new mobility technology and vehicle supplier matchmaking event gears toward connecting OE automotive suppliers, heavy duty/off-highway suppliers, and automotive aftermarket suppliers. Attendees will have a unique opportunity to meet with startup companies that have developed advanced technologies for connected vehicles, telematics, EV, and other applications. Register to attend AutoTech Connect 2019 to learn about the latest trends, explore new business relationships, network with other suppliers, and develop a better understanding of this evolving landscape.
Who should attend?
Automotive, heavy duty, off-highway, and aftermarket suppliers looking for new technologies and potential business opportunities with innovative companies
What should attendees bring?
Depending on what attendees are looking for, tier suppliers should come prepared to discuss technologies of interest.  Attendees would typically be technology scouts, M&A executives, or R&D executives.
Who will attendees be speaking with?
Founders and executives from targeted, pre-vetted, transportation-related start-ups
How will the pre-selection process work for meetings?
Both tier suppliers and start-ups will have the opportunity to select their top choices for meetings about 10 days before AutoTech Connect.  Participants will be given access to a website with a list of companies and a brief business plan for each one.  After submitting their top choices, these “preferred meetings” will be scheduled and pre-added to the meeting schedules.  All participants will get a schedule in advance, but additional meetings can also be added (see below).
What is the meeting structure?
Each tier supplier will have a table for meetings along with an initial meeting schedule. There will be 15 meetings that are each 15 minutes long with a break of 5 minutes between them. Just before the match-up meetings begin, start-ups will have the opportunity to add their company names to any remaining time slots on a tier supplier’s meeting schedule.
