Content & Apps for Automotive 2013: Last chance to save on passes for North America’s largest forum for in-car content and apps

CA, USA) that over 200 senior leaders from across the automotive, content provider, mobile and wireless industries have already signed-up to attend. 


By the end of 2013, ABI Research (2013) estimates that the mobile app market will be $27 billion. Despite this growth automakers have yet to perfect how apps should be delivered to the vehicle and how this content is set to drive revenues. With the mobile world reinventing itself and the expectations of consumers on an annual basis, the traditionally dogmatic automotive world has come head to head with the ‘move fast and break stuff’ attitude of Silicon Valley.

Reinvent the In-Car App Model

Content & Apps for Automotive USA, project director, Gareth Ragg stated, “We have reached a watershed moment for connected car content and applications. No longer is simply replicating the mobile app experience in the car sufficient or the goal to which the auto app community should aspire.” He continued, “As we stand on the cusp of 2014 it is imperative that we dispel thoughts of standalone applications in the car and look towards creating an integrated content platform that is appropriate to the automotive and driving experience. This is the only annual event to unite the automotive, content, application and wireless communities in San Francisco to discuss how to create a new app model for the car and in the process reinvent the in-vehicle infotainment experience.”
