Advanced Technology Guide Debuts at 2013 Washington Auto Show
Recognized Industry Expert to Highlight Advancements in Safety and Eco-Technologies
WASHINGTON, D.C. - November 19, 2012 – The Washington Auto Show®, the automotive industry’s annual public policy show and the largest public show held in Washington, D.C., is pleased to announce that “The New Car Advanced Technology Guide” written by Washington Post journalist and recognized automotive industry expert Warren Brown will be available in print and electronic versions at this year’s event, set for February 1-10.
The brochure will highlight Brown’s choices for the motor vehicles and technologies who are leading the way in sustainable, driver assist technologies, communications and infotainment systems among other advancements. The guide will be available to attendees at numerous locations throughout the show, adjacent to The Official Show Guide, as well as on The Washington Auto Show website and at computer centers available in the Advanced Technology Café and other locations.
“The old adage that cars haven’t changed is simply inaccurate,” Brown says. “The automotive industry is changing dramatically to meet changing market challenges and needs, and more changes are on the horizon. We want to showcase cars and trucks exhibiting advanced technologies in safety, telematics and fuel efficiency, and provide attendees with show-and-tell illustrations and graphics of how these technologies work.”
“The New Car Advanced Technology Guide” will include photographs of the selected cars and details about their unique technologies, including informational graphics and mockups of the new systems and their functionalities.
Some highlighted features will include:
“We are thrilled to share Brown’s insights and recommendations with this year’s event attendees, fellow car enthusiasts and automotive industry policy leaders,” says Washington Auto Show Chairman Robert Fogarty. “Our attendees are truly interested in learning about our industry’s latest technological advancements, and Brown’s understanding of the industry, its challenges and its successes is unparalleled. This year we are enhancing the event experience for all of our attendees by putting the cars of the future in their hands.”
A Columbia University educated journalist with more than 30 years of experience, Brown is recognized by automotive industry experts and area business leaders as the trusted source for trends, issues, technological advancements and industry analysis.
“This Auto Show is the perfect forum to highlight the industry’s commitment to and successful innovations in consumer safety, infotainments and communications, as well advancements in fuel economy and environmentally conscious systems,” Brown explains.
The Washington Auto Show is produced by the Washington Area New Automobile Dealers Association (WANADA), who will honor Brown’s contribution to the automotive industry at their annual lunch to be held December 5th, 2012.
