Car Design Forum LA 2018

Detroit builds cars. New York makes money. But Los Angeles manufactures dreams. That’s why we’ve invited the world’s leading car designers to LA to share their dreams of the future.

This event is designed to offer auto industry professionals a unique chance to hear about the latest and most game-changing advances in tech, UX, AI and the future shape of the industry – all direct from the senior creatives who are leading the charge.

While the forum is loosely based around design, that discipline now encompasses a whole range of ways that humans will interface with technology, brands, transport and more.

This is the only event in the world where the people who are designing the future of vehicles explain what’s happening on the leading edge, where it’s taking us and how it will change all of our lives.

Join us in November for this unique chance to hear about the latest and most game-changing advances in tech, UX, AI and the future shape of the industry – all direct from the senior creatives who are leading the charge.
