Dates Announced for Telematics Update’s Consumer Telematics Show 2014


The Consumer Telematics Show (CTS) is the most focused infotainment meeting for the automotive industry. Held in Las Vegas on the eve of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), CTS is set to showcase more world class speakers, crucial industry debates and executive attendees than ever before! Previous speakers have included Ford, Mercedes Benz, Toyota, Porche AG, Nissan, Hyundai and Toyota and this year’s event promises more of the same.

Ruthana Foulkes, strategic director at Telematics Update stresses the importance of this annual meeting in the auto-telematics calendar. “Apple’s Siri is showing up in cars. With most of the major automakers now saying that they’ll support Apples car-centric iOS 7 it’s clear that the auto industry can no longer ignore the fast paced CE world. CTS 2014 is where the automotive and CE worlds collide to enable the auto community to deliver a cutting-edge user experience to tech savvy customers”.

Preliminary topics for discussion at this must-attend event for anyone serious about in-car infotainment are available on the website ( Here’s a quick snapshot:

  • THE ARRIVAL OF HTML5 AND ITS VALUE TO THE AUTO WORLD: Harness the full capability of an HTML5 ecosystem to create a flexible, cross-platform, non-proprietary solution which enables developers to build a host of profitable applications for the auto environment
  • A BRAVE NEW WORLD OF M&As: Hear directly from Hughes Telematics and Verizon Wireless as they speak out on the telematics industry’s first major acquisition and forecast its impact on the market’s development from 2013 to 2020
