The southeastern United States continues to boast the fastest-growing automotive industry in North America. Known for its world-class automotive production and sound business environment, the region’s supply base has thrived while OEMs and major suppliers continue to invest. The Southern Automotive Conference (SAC) selected Atlanta as the location for the 2018 event because it is a recognized hub for global connections.
Attendees include OEMs; Tier 1, 2, and 3 suppliers; government agencies; educational institutions; and professional service organizations that have specialized expertise in automotive, and related industrial and aerospace industries.
The SAC has an International reputation for attracting top industry executives and thought leaders – including those from various parts of Central, South, and North America; Europe; Nordic countries; and Asia.
The SAC has consistently attracted top-level decision makers including those responsible for site selection, construction, plant and equipment, production processes, components, quality, transportation, logistics and supply chain matters, HR/benefit issues, accounting and finance, and legal solutions such as OSHA, product liability, and intellectual property.
With creative changes and continued improvements, the 2018 conference promises to be an unforgettable experience. Again this year, all sponsors and exhibitors are invited to attend the exclusive Wednesday Evening VIP reception, allowing focused networking opportunities with Joint Board members, OESA, SAWF, OEM Purchasing representatives, VIP guests, and others.
