Lawrence Tech University will be hosting its annual “Main Event” showcase and awards show on January 8, 2017, just prior to the kickoff of NAIAS. It’s a school I had the privilege of teaching at, being an Adjunct Professor of ID last year. The 2016 event was a lot of fun, and fantastic for networking.
Here’s the info:
The Executive Committee of the MAIN Event, and our corporate sponsors, would like to invite you to attend the 7th annual international celebration of automotive design and industry excellence, held on Sunday, January 8th, 2017 at the Max M. Fisher Theater to kick-off the Auto Show in Detroit. In addition to honoring the executive achievements of Tisha Johnson, you’ll also have the opportunity to explore a perception-shattering mega trend.
