The 2017 WardsAuto User Experience (UX) Conference is presented with Pure Michigan Business Connect (PMBC), which will hold “early supplier engagement” matchmaking sessions to connect technology providers with program leaders and buyers at automakers and Tier One suppliers. WardsAuto and PMBC are inviting personnel of automotive OEMs and large suppliers to participate, asking what types of technologies they would like to explore, and matching them with Michigan-based companies on the cutting edge of those desired products and services. The WardsAuto UX Conference will also showcase automaker keynote speakers, panel discussions on UX-focused topics, exhibits from leading technology suppliers and the annual Wards 10 Best User Experience awards ceremony. Dave Lyon, co-founder of Pocketsquare Design and former design executive at General Motors, will lead a center-stage discussion on solving UX challenges, including top designers from OEMs and suppliers.
During this event, Sam Abuelsamid, senior research analyst at Navigant Research, will moderate: Next Generation Navigation and Mapping Thursday at 11 a.m.
