GAMIC attracts a wide variety of attendees to its events. The audience includes corporate leaders, media representatives and automotive industry experts, investors and influencers, as well as students and general visitors interested in the innovative technologies showcased during the competition. While the competitors’ presentations will be informative, one of the most valuable aspects of GAMIC events is the opportunity to meet fellow innovation enablers and build new relationships. In addition to the networking, GAMIC attendees have the opportunity to learn alongside the competitors from the judges’ feedback.
