Technological innovation is transforming the automobile industry, and more change is in store. Advancements in automation and safety will have major economic effects on manufacturing regions.

We invite you to join us for a webinar presentation on September 13th from 2 to 3 p.m. EST exploring the employment and output effects of these changes.

Sophisticated safety alerts and automated breaking systems are already common features in today’s cars. Electric and hybrid vehicles are becoming more popular. Driverless cars will further revolutionize the industry in the near future.

For this webinar, Billy Leung, REMI Vice President, will discuss how these trends influence state and local economies – not just for the traditional base of automobile manufacturing in Michigan, but also for other parts of the country connected by the auto supply chain. Mr. Leung will demonstrate how to simulate the effects of industry-wide change using REMI’s modeling software.

Following the presentation, you will have an opportunity to engage in a Q&A.

The presentation will be approximately one hour in length, and we offer it at no charge via the Citrix GotoWebinar web conferencing platform. Advanced registration is required; please click here to register.
