CAR’s Management Briefing Seminars Go Online
This year’s Management Briefing Seminars will go online Aug. 4-5 with several twists to help capture the feel of the venerable live event in Traverse City Mich., says Center for Automotive Research CEO Carla Bailo.
Highlights include online exhibit “rooms,” real-time networking and the likelihood of regional, in-person product demonstrations and “watch parties” in metro Detroit and beyond.
The registration fee for this year’s event has been dropped to $349, and Bailo notes that going online means MBS will be accessible for the first time to attendees worldwide. All sessions will be recorded and available for viewing anytime for six months after the event itself.
