    What is driving change in the automotive industry?

    Automakers and suppliers are focusing on mobility—whether it’s the future of technology, research and development, or how they envision their workplace environments for the next generation of employees. Join us for an in-depth discussion on how the AEC industry can help automotive suppliers achieve their internal mobility goals.

    The panel discussion will explore:

    • Automotive suppliers' future projects.
    • Economic factors, what incentivizes their companies to stay in Michigan.
    • What makes the best project team to execute their goals.
    • What are the driving factors to renovate or develop new facilities and potentially relocate.
    • How the State of Michigan is so successful in securing key automotive companies to stay and/or develop new offices and R&D Labs.
