IAM 2017 - International Aftermarket Meeting
Mobile Solutions: Opportunities and challenges for the Automotive Aftermarket
By the year 2020, an entire generation, Generation C (for “connected”), will have grown up in a primarily digital world. Computers, the Internet, mobile phones, texting, social networking — all are second nature to members of this group. And their familiarity with technology, reliance on mobile communications, and desire to remain in contact with large networks of family members, friends, and business contacts will transform how we work and how we consume.
This megatrend is already affecting the automotive industry and the aftermarket. The OEMs are today not only present at Auto Shows but also at the CES in Las Vegas. This symposium provides an opportunity for the aftermarket community to hear from experts what does that mean for the aftermarket.
