Spark Matchmaking Event (Additional Registration Required)

From electrical circuits to fuel lines, solid connections keep engines purring. At the Kentucky Automotive Industry Association, we understand that connections also fuel your business. That’s why we’re happy to incorporate the widely popular SPARK Matchmaking Event into this year’s AutoVision! Attendees who purchase one of the limited matchmaking packages may sign up for exclusive one-on-one meetings with leading OEM and Tier I procurement representatives. Those meetings could be the beginning of a profitable relationship!
9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Industry Tour and Lunch (Additional Registration Required)

Kicking off the conference on Monday morning will be an optional industry tour in the Central Kentucky area. Participants lucky enough to secure one of the limited-seating tickets will be treated to an inside look at an area supplier, a leading workforce training model, as well as a networking lunch. Transportation will be provided, returning in time so not to miss the start of AutoVision!
