2013 Automotive Outlook Conference

January 13, 2013

SAA's Most Important and Insightful Event of the Year!

General Motors' revival and outlook for 2013 and an examination of suppliers in 2013 were a couple of the topic that attendees heard at SAA's annual Automotie Outlook Conference on Jan. 13, 2013.  The North American International Auto Show was kicked off with a vibrant discussion on the year ahead, readying for another challenging year from the relative calm of Detroit.

SAA's annual Automotive Outlook Conference is the largest gathering of the year of SAA members and helps kick off the North American International Auto Show.  It also sheds a spotlight on what to expect in the coming year in the automotive industry, provides outstanding networking opportunities and features insightful and compelling speakers from the OEM, analyst and financial communities.

In each of these sessions, Tom provided a “walking overview” of the 2013 NAIAS highlights while zeroing in on numerous product introductions and other insights relating to what each of the exhibiting automakers are planning.
