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 and the watching the competition. While the competitors’ presentations are entertaining and informative in themselves, one of the most valuable aspects of GAMIC events is the opportunity all participants and attendees have in meeting new people and building relationships with them. In addition to networking, GAMIC attendees have the opportunity to learn alongside the competitors from the judges’ feedback.

For the Quarter-Finals and Semi-Finals, the majority of the participating companies will present on-site, although some will present remotely. Their presentations will be given via Skype and the video feed will be displayed on a large screen. For the World Finals, we encourage all presenters to do so onsite.

Single tickets are available for purchase for each of the three Quarter-Final rounds (in Metro Detroit, Silicon Valley, and Waterloo, Ontario, Canada), as well as for the Semi-Finals and Finals in Metro Detroit. Single event tickets can be purchased through Eventbrite below.

Members are able to attend GAMIC events for a discounted rate. For more information about GAMIC membership is described on our Members page.
