Sonja Johnson, VAGTC executive director, said the industry is undergoing a major transformation in the midst of ongoing supply chain frustrations.

“It’s really a tumultuous time in the industry as electric vehicles become more widely available and there is a growing focus on sustainable, green manufacturing processes,” Johnson said. “Global supply chain issues are creating massive shifts in sourcing strategies.

“We are excited to bring original equipment manufacturers together with Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 suppliers to discuss the challenges and opportunities that the industry is experiencing in this New Age of Auto.”
