This year’s conference picks up from where I-CAR’s technology advancement discussion at the 2013 conference left off. It will provide executives and leaders across the industry further insight into the challenges and opportunities surrounding the "technical tsunami."  

John McElroy, host of Autoline Daily and Autoline This Week, will return to moderate this year’s conference. The conference will feature an expanded lineup of speakers from Ford Motor Company, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Steel Market Development Institute, Alcoa, University of Michigan and Robert Bosch LLC. Key topics will include:

  • Ford: A high impact session covering OEM strategies related to CAFE, details on the new aluminum F-150 and Ford’s enhanced collision repair service strategy
  • Lightweighting: Advancements and trends in carbon fiber, advanced steels and aluminum
  • The Changing DNA of the Vehicle: Reinventing the Automobile
  • Advanced Electronics, Communications and Safety: Vehicle wide driver safety systems, V2X deployment and how vehicle data will reshape our industry

I-CAR has also announced new, reduced pricing for this year’s conference. The admission price is $250 for early bird registration – a promotion running now through June 14. As an added bonus, all I-CAR Conference attendees will receive a free pass to the NACE/CARS expo, also being held at the COBO Center July 31 and Aug. 1.


In addition to presentations and panel discussions, the I-CAR Conference also offers numerous networking opportunities, including an evening reception celebrating I-CAR’s 35th anniversary, complete with live entertainment.
