The Los Angeles Auto Show (LA Auto Show®) today announced its newly selected conference director and advisory board members, recruited to direct the 2014 Connected Car Expo (CCE) scheduled for later this year.

The new LA Auto Show conference director is automotive industry veteran, Andy Gryc, with recent posts at QNX, W3C Automotive Business and CX3 Marketing.  The rest of the CCE Advisory Board for this year’s show comprises:

With input from the advisory board, the conference director will set the strategic direction and conference agenda for the Connected Car Expo held in conjunction with the LA Auto Show Press Days November 18, 19 and 20. The team will also help guide thought leadership presentations at the CCE event taking place at CTIA’s Super Mobility Week in Las VegasSeptember 9, 10 and 11, 2014. New for this year at the LA Auto Show Press Days is a Connected City Summit, which will address how technology is transforming everything from transportation to safety to infrastructure in modern cities.
