It’s “South Carolina Auto Week” and industry professionals are in the Upstate to network and learn about new technologies.
The auto industry is a huge economic force in the South Carolina, supporting tens of thousands of jobs here and contributing billions to the economy.
The South Carolina Automotive Summit is also a chance to talk about new technologies in the industry – from new software to wireless car connectivity.
“One of the things that’s really changing in the industry, is that it’s not just about cars,” said Catherine Hayes, Executive Director of the South Carolina Automotive Council.
Governor Nikki Haley will be speaking to the attendees Thursday morning about South Carolina’s role in the industry.
