Major advances such as self-driving cars, lighter-weight vehicles and long-lasting electric batteries will be among the topics discussed by leading experts from across the nation and beyond. Leaders from Kentucky’s major automotive manufacturers including Ford, General Motors and Toyota will be among the presenters.

“Forget the rearview mirror. Find out what’s over the horizon for the auto industry,” said Dave Tatman, KAIA’s executive director.

Gov. Steve Beshear, a leader in the expansion of Kentucky’s auto industry, will address the audience and the Kentucky Cabinet for Economic Development is the presenting sponsor. Speakers, panel discussions and breakout sessions will focus on cutting-edge technology and timely issues, including workforce training and regulatory changes, to help position business leaders for opportunities and growth.

Experts and leaders confirmed to date include:

“The automotive world is changing rapidly, so communication is crucial to continuing economic success,” Tatman said. “As one of the nation’s top automotive states, we believe Kentucky has a responsibility to lead in thinking as well as doing. Bringing together some of the leading minds for a two-day summit will help the entire automotive industry — throughout the region, across the country and around the world.
