Today's new car lots are crammed with connectable cars, capable of keeping connected consumers constantly in touch with their audiotainment, services, and contacts. Everyone from Apple to Zubie is involved, and industries from pizza delivery to insurance are facing tectonic shifts as a result. It's time to start thinking way beyond the dashboard!
So what's the best way to engage with this new opportunity? DASH is a two-day gathering of experts from diverse industries who'll tackle the practical questions around direct-to-dashboard commerce, turning data into dollars, future transportation, and more.
The agenda features panels moderated by radio show hosts who know how to keep it lively, SolveIt! roundtables, and OpenMic sessions to ensure that every attendee is part of the conversation, as well as demos of the latest innovations in the space.
DASH 2013 featured nearly 300 participants from 15 different industries, and created so much buzz that folks started signing up for DASH 2014 just two months later. Don't miss out - reserve your place today!
The fall season marks the start of football, the coming baseball playoffs, and our second DASH Conference. Living in Detroit, it's never easy anticipating how the Lions will perform or if the Tigers will fade, but we do know that on October 15-16, hundreds of leaders from the radio industry, automotive companies and their suppliers, advertising agencies, car dealers, and others with an interest in the "connected car" will converge on Detroit to collaborate and gain a better understanding of the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead in the dashboard.
We hope you can join us for the most unique conference in radio.
Gary Shapiro, president and CEO of the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)®, will be a keynote speaker at the second DASH Connected Car Conference, to be held in Detroit, October 15-16, 2014.

The DASH connected-car conference is coming up fast -- October 15-16 in Detroit -- and innovation, both on the dash and in radio, is certain to be a hot topic. So we're pleased to announce that Cary Tilds, chief innovation officer at GroupM, will deliver a keynote address with this intriguing theme: "What Got You Here Won't Get You There."
