Will you be attending any of the events below? Let me know, as it would be great to connect around them.
First, this Thursday, March 24, I return to MediaPost for Marketing:Automotive for a session where I’ll draw from the research MRY put out a bit ago at the intersection of mobility and cars. Here are the details of this session at 2:30pm:
General Motors’ recent partnership with Lyft suggests that automakers are facing a stark reality: convenience is key to younger people, and they are more interested in technology than power. If Uber and Lyft are a sign of cool among younger demos today, what will happen when driverless cars finally come to market? Will tomorrow’s consumer regard the motor vehicle as a mere utility to get from Point A to Point B? What will it take to get the next generation to buy into idea of owning a car?MODERATOR
