by | Feb 28, 2020 | 0 comments

Registration is now open for the Automotive Industries Association of Canada’s National Conference April 28, and 29 in Toronto, Ont., Canada.

New technologies, new skills, new thinking and constant disruption can be difficult for any industry to navigate. 

The AIA’s National Conference April 28 and 29, is the largest networking opportunity for those involved in the Canadian aftermarket industry.

Featured presentations include:

The sustainable future of the Automotive Aftermarket
Presented by Georgian College Automotive Business Program Students
What keeps your kids up at night? The environment? Recycling? Going green? Find out how the automotive aftermarket can react and remain sustainable in the eyes of future generations. Small actions can yield significant results. Are you ready?

Focus on the right-to-repair and access to vehicle data
The modern vehicle is a digital device. Cars send and receive wireless information and their sensors collect immense amounts of data needed for vehicle repair and maintenance. Today, automakers own the modern vehicle’s communication loop, meaning they control the data collected. Can the aftermarket compete if automakers maintain their control of and access to the vehicle communication loop and wireless vehicle data?

Addressing talent shortages and skills gap
With technological changes coming to the aftermarket faster and faster every day, are there enough trained technicians to go around? Will your business be able to attract the high-tech employees you need? Will you be able retrain the staff you have today to work on the cars of tomorrow? We’ll look at how the industry can build the aftermarket’s workforce of the future.
