MAMA Members attended the Tennessee Automotive Manufacturers Association (TAMA) 2015 Southern Automotive Conference (SAC), the region’s premier automotive tradeshow, Oct. 18-20 in the heart of downtown Nashville.  The Mississippi Automotive Manufacturers Association (MAMA) will host the event next year in Biloxi, Mississippi, October 5 – 7, 2016, at the Beau Rivage Resort.  The conference, in its ninth year in 2016, is projected to welcome more than 100 exhibitors and more than 800 attendees to the Mississippi Gulf Coast, easily making it the most exciting SAC to date.

MAMA is organizing the event alongside SAC partner organizations from Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia and South Carolina. The conference offers numerous networking opportunities, allowing attendees to interact face‐to‐face with potential clients and new business contacts from across the Southeast. Convening the SAC in one of the country’s most desirable coastal resort areas also allows attendees ample pre- and post-conference opportunities to socialize.  Our event’s dates will coincide with “America’s Largest Block Party,” Cruisin’ The Coast, a festival to celebrate antique, classic and hot rod vehicles, nostalgic music and related events.  Over 7,000 registered cars from car enthusiasts from 41 states plus Canada and Sweden drive to the Mississippi Gulf Coast once a year to showcase their rides and to cruise our beautiful 30-mile stretch of beachside highway.

Mississippi A Driving Source of Todays Automotive Success

The SAC provides a forum for top executives from original automotive manufacturers (OEMs) and major suppliers to showcase new product developments, collaborate on best practices and discuss strategies to strengthen the region’s burgeoning automotive industry. This year’s conference theme, “Success in the South: Yesterday’s Dream, Today’s Reality, Tomorrow’s Potential.  A New Legacy in Automotive,” represents how the southeastern United States is applying its traditional carmaking expertise towards the future of manufacturing.
