- You Won't Be Bored
With each talk being just 5 minutes, you won't get bored. Our presenters range the gamut from an ethnographer studying culture at General Motors to the "Chief Troublemaker" of a Detroit advertising agency.
- It's Free!
Unlike most conferences, Ignite Automotive is 100% free. Our presenters, organizers, and sponsors have all donated their time and effort to bring you an exciting event that is open to anyone who is interested. We have limited seating, so register online for your ticket today.
- No Keynote Speakers
Instead of putting just a few special guests up on a pedestal for a keynote speech or panel, we give each of our speakers, from all walks of life, five minutes to enlighten you.
All of our speakers at Ignite Automotive are created equal: they each are allotted the same amount of time and play by the same set of rules.
- Presentation Slides Auto-Advance
To add to the excitement, Ignite presenters are only allowed to use 20 slides. The catch is that each slide auto-advances after 15 seconds, regardless of whether or not the presenter is ready or not.
The Ignite format provides an intense atmosphere and forces presenters to stay on topic and get their points across quickly and succinctly (or be left behind by their own slides).
- Fresh, Fresh Ideas
We’re constantly barraged with analysis from Wall Street, the Boardrooms and Press – the "Authoritative Opinions" get old quickly. Our speakers are not the usual talking heads you’ll find on TV and radio.
The concept behind Ignite Automotive is to expose Detroit to out of the box thinkers with disruptive ideas. Change in the air in the automotive industry and Ignite Automotive the best place to catch that wind.
