After two years of COVID-19 craziness, the automotive industry is finally coming back together for a wide range of in-person conferences in 2022.
Automotive conferences are an important part of any company’s marketing strategy, a chance to get out, get to know your customers, see what’s going on in the industry, and more. Not only that, conferences are fun, and a great way to encourage your people to meet others in the industry and let loose outside the office walls.
We’ve rounded up a list of our top automotive conferences in 2022 that you don’t want to miss below.
Companies that want to get their name out in the automotive industry and space, must make an effort to present at relevant conferences and trade shows.

You’ve decided you’re attending one of the big auto conferences this year. Great! Now’s the time to get ready. In order to gain maximum exposure, leave a lasting impression on your potential clients, and network with the right people and companies, make sure to prepare in advance.
This may seem obvious, but it’s worthwhile to get started on this way in advance. Writing marketing materials specifically for the conference, planning the look of your booth, ordering the right SWAG, and more takes time. That’s why you’ll want to start working on this as soon as you decide that you’ll be heading to a specific conference.
You’ll meet a lot of people randomly at any conference, that’s a given. However, you want to make sure that the right people are looking for you and visiting you at your booth. That’s why you’ll want to post on your social media about the conference, write a blog post, and even add your booth information to your email signature. This makes it as easy as possible for people to look and find you while they’re at the event.
Are there companies that you want to connect with while you’re attending the conference or trade show? Do your research in advance to see who is going to be at the event, where they are located, and even reach out in advance to plan a time to meet up.
Want to make things even more interesting? Create a mini-event for your colleagues and/or customers during the event. Send out invites and welcome people to join you for a lecture, a cocktail event, a demo, or anything else that fits your brand.
Ravin.AI makes a point of attending the biggest conferences in the industry each year and we’d love to meet you there.
