BIRMINGHAM, Alabama — Alabama’s expanding auto manufacturing sector will occupy center stage as industry leaders from across the region and beyond gather in Birmingham for the 14th installment of the Southern Automotive Conference, today through Friday.
SAC 2021 is expected to draw more than 1,000 attendees and 200 exhibitors to the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex. The conference has a special focus on original equipment manufacturers, suppliers and service providers operating in Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas.
Premier sponsors of SAC 2021 are AIDT, Alabama’s primary workforce development agency, and a unique training center it funds, the Alabama Robotics Technology Park, along with the Alabama Works initiative.
