HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill. – I-CAR has announced the theme of its re-engineered Inter-Industry Conference, slated to take place July 24-25 at the Westin Boston Waterfront in Boston, Mass.
"Driving Excellence … In Technology: The Changing World of Vehicle Technology & What it Means to You" is designed to benefit industry leaders who recognize that vehicle technology changes are significant and rapidly evolving, according to the organization.
To this end, I‐CAR is inviting technical leaders from NHTSA, IIHS, the Center for Automotive Research, vehicle OEMs and OEM suppliers to share their knowledge on up-and-coming vehicle technology developments.  
“Our focus for the conference is to help our industry better understand the impact associated with rapidly evolving vehicle technologies such as collision avoidance, telematics and CAFE driven vehicle ‘lightweighting’ and architecture changes, and to learn about these directly from the technologists that are helping to create the future,” said I-CAR CEO and President John Van Alstyne.
The conference will begin with a luncheon on July 24 at 12:30 p.m., and will then proceed with a general session with speaker presentations and a recap panel until 5 p.m. That evening, attendees will have the opportunity to attend the I-­CAR Networking Reception and Sponsor Showcase Event.
Day two kicks off at 8 a.m. with I-CAR Business Over Breakfast, where four national awards will be presented. The event also will feature presentations from Van Alstyne as well as Bill Brower, chair of I-CAR’s board of directors. The day-two general session follows at 9 a.m. with more technical insights and concludes at 11 a.m., following a panel that will discuss the impact vehicle technology changes will have on industry repair and business practices.
