September 22, 2014 at 2:23 PM (PT)
JACOBS MEDIA's DASH, "The Connected Car AudioTainment Conference," will take place at the WESTIN HOTEL at the DETROIT METROPOLITAN AIRPORT, OCTOBER 15th and 16th.
"For radio, it's simple. The car is the #1 listening location. And automotive is the #1 sales revenue category," notes JACOBS MEDIA Pres. FRED JACOBS. "These two storied industries need to form new partnerships to discuss the future. That's why we created DASH."
Leaders from the automotive industry, TIER ONE suppliers, broadcasters, advertising agencies, and others will come together for this important event. Keynote speakers include the CEO of the CONSUMER ELECTTRONICS ASSOCIATION, GARY SHAPIRO, and GROUP M's Chief Innovation Officer, CARY TILDS. Additional presentations will be provided from execs from THE FORD MOTOR COMPANY, TOYOTA, PANASONIC's AUPEO division, PANDORA and SLACKER, NIELSEN, EDISON MEDIA RESEARCH, experts from CBS RADIO's WWJ and THE DETROIT NEWS, ZIPCAR and ZAGSTER, along with best-selling author, VALERIE GELLER.
JACOBS MEDIA VP/GM PAUL JACOBS commented: "The connected car is a technology that has snuck up on radio. There is no more important agenda item than broadcast radio's future in the car because while the automotive industry is important to radio, radio does an outstanding job selling cars."
