Auto Finance Summit, the premier industry event, returns October 20-22, 2020, as a virtual experience.

For the past 20 years the Auto Finance Summit has been the industry’s leading conference, and we intend to maintain that position in 2020 and beyond. As we all face the uncertainty of what this year brings, there is one thing we know: We are stronger together. And so we view the changing landscape in our industry as an opportunity for us to come together again as a community to navigate our way through these challenging circumstances. Read the full statement from our chairman here.

The 20th annual event will be held virtually, powered by a leading provider of event technology that provides exceptional online event networking and AI-based matchmaking, which is crucial since we know that networking is a vital aspect of any event you attend. The advanced AI-driven matchmaking will let you find and demo Exhibitor and Sponsor technologies, and schedule one-on-one meetings with other industry leaders. Additionally, our technology will provide access to all conference content through live streaming, including real-time Q&As with speakers and interactive roundtable sessions. All sessions will be recorded, and attendees will maintain access to conference content for reference throughout the year. The virtual Auto Finance Summit allows us to expand our audience reach — even beyond those who typically attend our conference.

The 2020 Virtual Experience will allow us to continue to bring together the best of the best in auto lending and leasing for unparalleled networking and education. With an A-list speaker faculty made up of the industry’s leading experts, the Auto Finance Summit will once again provide attendees with necessary insights and strategies to maneuver in the year ahead.

The 2020 agenda will address key strategies for reigniting the industry, as well as updates on the lasting macroeconomic implications of the coronavirus pandemic and how the securitization market has changed since the outbreak. Being a virtual event affords us unique content opportunities beyond what you would see at a live event. The technology allows for an engaging, real-time “focus group” on industry dynamics that will deliver crucial information on current market trends. We will also host intimate online breakouts that will let you chat with our exceptional speakers. And we will include the types of sessions that have been present at previous Auto Finance Summits, such as educational workshops, fireside chats and the executive dialogue panel, where top lenders in the industry discuss the road back to recovery.

Since 2001, the Auto Finance Summit has strived to create an exceptional experience for all our participants, and our goal is to not only match that with the Virtual Experience, but to exceed it.

Join us October 20-22 for the Auto Finance Summit Virtual Experience.
