“This has probably been the best conference I’ve ever been to. I feel like I’ve learned more in the last two hours than I have in the last two years.”

“If you work in automotive retail and are seeking a year-end event to attend in 2024, I cannot recommend AUTOVATE enough.”
Stephen Dietrich

“Bringing investment banks, venture capitalists, family funds, disruptive dealers, and forward-thinking OEMs together under one roof, AUTOVATE is where the future of retail automotive unfolds. It is one of the few industry conferences where no one sells anything or tries to pitch you their products. Instead, you will find compelling, substantive conversations that truly matter to the industry, dealers, and their clients.”
