In its’ annual year-end wrap-up, Mobile Technology Association of Michigan’s Detroit Chapter of Mobile Monday Michigan reviews the impact of Connected Tech in 2016 and attempts to forecast 2017
DETROIT, MI – As has been the case since 2007, Year 2016 has been another innovation-filled, exciting year of advances related to the use of connected technologies – in almost every industry – globally, nationwide and here in Michigan! And 2017 is shaping up to be another ground-breaking year!
As they have for the last several years, Mobile Monday Detroit will again hold its’ Year-end Wrap-up event “Connected Tech Year in Review & Focus on the Future” on Monday, December 12th at 6:00 p.m. at RIIS in Troy. As it is every year, the format for this event is modified to be much more interactive; audience members are highly encouraged to participate in the conversation that will be led by Mobile Monday Detroit organizers, Randy Nunez of Ford Motor Company and Glenn Everitt of Compuware.
The discussion will review Mobile Monday Detroit events from 2016, as well as highlighting key connected technology innovations and issues that occurred during the year in Michigan and elsewhere, while looking at what we can expect moving forward into 2017. The audience is asked to bring their thoughts, perspectives, opinions and questions as the Mobile Monday Detroit team and audience together reflect on past events to understand the future impact they will have on connected technologies – and all the industries that use them!
Specific topics to be included in the discussion include, but are not limited to:
- Apple vs. FBI: San Bernardino
