Global Automotive Outlook Conference – Birmingham, MI

Monday, October 3, 2022 at 08:30AM


The global economic and automotive industry has demonstrated resilience and innovation in the face of pandemic-induced challenges. However, the market continues to be hampered by 3-years of stacked supply and demand disruptors. While the health of the industry has held up fairly well, despite lower sales and production volume, near-term risks are elevated, and a number of variables remain that may negatively impact the recovery pace and level.   

Please join LMC for the return of our in-person global automotive outlook conference, the premier tactical and strategic planning conference in North America. The event will take place on October 3, 2022 opening with a breakfast at 08:30 AM, and closing with a network reception at 4:00 PM. This event will take place at the Townsend Hotel in Birmingham, Michigan and will provide critical market insights, as well as the opportunity to network with industry peers.    

Our global team of experts and special guest speakers will offer valuable and timely analysis, alongside key intelligence on the current automotive market environment and recovery prospects.
