The southeast United States continues to boast the fastest growing automotive industry in North America. Known for its world-class automotive production and sound business environment, the region’s supply-base has thrived while OEMs and major suppliers continue to invest.

With global sales expected to increase, manufacturers must rise to the occasion and continue to: (1) improve operational excellence; (2) build the workforce and increase product; and (3) process innovations. The 2015 SAC will focus on how the South is excelling in these three key areas.

In October, senior executives from OEMs from across the southeast will showcase their plants’ latest developments. Key elected officials from southern states will discuss their efforts to increase the region’s competitive advantage. OEMs and suppliers will roll up their sleeves and talk about supplier best practices to ensure that, as an industry, we continue to meet the growing challenges of the global market.

Please join us in Nashville in October!
