The Automotive Advanced Technology Summit will feature Keynote Presentations and Panel Discussions by Industry and Technology Leaders across the Automotive and Advanced Manufacturing & Technology Industry.

Featured OEM keynote presentations will include: Honda Manufacturing of Alabama (HMA), the new Mazda Toyota Manufacturing (MTMUS) joint venture, and Toyota Motors Manufacturing. With the incredible growth and investments made across the Southeastern USA, coupled with a strong and focused growth and investment in the technology and workforce to be prepared for the future, training facilities like the Robotics Technology Park (RTP) and other institutional partnerships, this will be an exciting and interesting discussion about where the future of manufacturing is going.

Industry and technological presentations will continue throughout the afternoon, looking at additional opportunities between industries, collaboration with research institutions and education organizations, and the focus on technologies and people for the future. The afternoon workshops, panel discussions and presentations will further expand upon the topics of advanced manufacturing and innovative technologies and both how to prepare the workforce to take on the challenges of these technology, as well as capturing the full potential through the use of data.
