The inaugural Technology in Motion (TIM Detroit) exhibition and conference in Detroit will be the first to host the brand new vehicle. This event spans over three days and is all about how technology and the car world are working together for a better future on America’s roads. The organizers, Crain Communications and MSX International, announced that the show will have a mix of STEM-related activities, product exhibitions, panel discussions, and on-site events.

“The launch of the Nissan LEAF is the perfect kickoff for TIM Detroit,” said KC Crain, president and chief operating officer, Crain Communications – a co-producer of TIM Detroit. “It clearly demonstrates the innovative spirit that TIM Detroit is designed to showcase.”
