SEMA is hosting a CEO-Leadership Roundtable event to discuss a new forecasting study being developed by the Center for Automotive Research. Part One of the study focuses on trends in automotive electronic systems, trends toward reduced accessory content at the OEM level, length and volume in vehicle runs and the aftermarket as an enabler for the “connected car.” Topics of Part Two and Part Three include advanced powertrain and consumer trends, respectively.

The SEMA CEO-Leadership Roundtable on Saturday, July 26, 2008, in Irvine, California, will focus on Part One of the study. The discussion will be moderated by David Cole, chairman of Center for Automotive Research, and will include a panel consisting of Paul Brubaker from the Research and Innovative Technology Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation; George Dettloff from SKF USA Inc.; and Brian Smith from the Lexus Division of Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc.

CEOs, company presidents and company leaders who are interested in taking part in the event can register by visiting before the July 11 deadline. Seating is limited, so don’t delay.
