Canadian Black Book and J.D. Power together are pleased to announce the upcoming 2018 TalkAUTO, the seventh annual edition. This year’s highly anticipated event will take place on Wednesday, November 7 at the Universal Eventspace in Vaughan, Ontario.
Event capacity is for around 400 attendees and attendance is complimentary, so spots will fill quickly.
TalkAUTO has grown into a top-tier networking destination for Canada’s auto industry key influencers and decision makers, who include many dealers, OEM executives, industry suppliers, finance and banking experts, trade media and more.
For 2018, the theme for TalkAUTO is ‘Who Moved My Keys?: adapting to change in a new marketplace’, a play on the popular motivational business fable and New York Times Bestseller – ‘Who Moved My Cheese?’.
An impressive line-up of guest and keynote speakers will support this year’s theme, headlined by Sheryl Connelly, Manager of Global Consumer Trends and Futuring, Ford Motor Company. Serving as Ford’s futurist for over a decade, and well known for identifying global trends and how they might impact the auto industry, she will certainly provide the TalkAUTO audience with an informative and memorable address.
Organizers urge you to keep the November 7 date saved. An announcement will be sent to the TalkAUTO mailing list. If you want to stay in the loop, please join our mailing list. As in previous years, if history is any indication, seats will fill rapidly.
If you have any questions about registration, please contact: Elena Sheehy, Conference Administrator, Elena.Sheehy@jdpa.com, 647-946-3444.
