The Connected Car in 2015: The Road Starts Here
The Consumer Telematics Show (CTS) kicks off the calendar year for the connected car community, serving two strategic key purposes; it gives auto OEMs a platform to make announcements surrounding new partnerships or products and acts as the largest and most focused meeting point for 500+ automotive execs during CES week.
The dates for this year's event have just been announced. CTS 2015 will take place on Monday January 5 at The Rio Hotel & Casino.

Great insight into the developing strategies, and into the common challenges that OEMs and TSPs continue to face.
CTS is at the center of what's happening in the telematics world. It was great to see colleagues reconnect, meet face to face for the first time, and new connections made. I highly recommend this well-organized and planned event.
First-class networking and a great speaker line-up.
