Using Automotive Data as its focal point, Telematics Berlin will be entertaining the full connected car value chain including big name automakers, suppliers, content providers and legislative or industry bodies. General Motors will be speaking for the first time at the event, with Kenneth Malmberg, Business Development lead for Infotainment & Telematics, discussing the topic of the in-car operating systems alongside Ford, Pioneer and the CCC. Oracle, a growing force in the automotive space, will have their own dedicated stage time at the event. Lastly, this year’s Telematics Berlin will have its first Start-Up Competition, in which four local budding automotive start-ups will pitch to the audience, who will then vote for the most innovative start-up.

Project Director for Telematics Berlin, Chris Breger, called the event “…a unique opportunity to not only hear what the biggest companies are doing to shape the future of in-car telematics, but also the perfect site to foster new partnerships with established industry names and even start-ups – tomorrow’s tech giants.”
