Organized by Automotive Manufacturing Solutions (AMS) magazine, the AutoMan Global conference aims to establish an exclusive annual appointment for senior industry members. "By talking to our industry contacts we realized that there was a need to provide top executives with an exclusive platform to share their knowledge and concerns with the objective of searching for global solutions. AutoMan Global gives key industry players this opportunity. It offers them a unique chance to meet and discuss, in open debate or through private conversations, the latest trends, strategies and opinions in one of the most selective hotels in Michigan," says Alex Campos Morales, Marketing Manager.
Simon Duval Smith, Group Editor of AMS says " With eight sessions already filling up, including flexibility and lean manufacturing, automation and robotics, press shop, safety and powertrain, the program is expanding day by day. The high level of speaker involvement is testament to the industry's desire for a global automaking forum - and where better to hold it than in Motor City?"
