Join John Chen at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS)

AUTOMOTIVE / 01.05.18 / Neelam Sandhu

Last month it was announced that John Chen will deliver a keynote at the North American International Auto Show.

For those of you that are unable to be at the show with John in-person, I am pleased to be able to share that you are invited to join via livestream.  Simply click here on Monday 15th January at 2.10pm ET to watch live.

You will hear John speak about BlackBerry’s market-leading transformation and how the company is one of the automotive industry’s most trusted partners.  In fact, if you own a car, it is probably powered by BlackBerry software.

Additionally, during the keynote John will launch a new product for the automotive industry that will help to shape and secure the future of connected and self-driving cars.

See you on January 15th!
