Chicago Auto Show to Host Technori Pitch Event During 2013 Media Preview

The Chicago Automobile Trade Association (CATA), producer of the Chicago Auto Show, announced plans to bring Technori Pitch to the 2013 Chicago Auto Show Social Media Preview on February 8, 2013 - the second of two Media Preview days at the show.

Technori Pitch is a monthly event where Chicago's most innovative companies have the chance to pitch their latest technologies before an audience of entrepreneurs, executives, and enthusiasts. This year, Chicago entrepreneurs will take the stage at the Social Media Preview to present their automotive-related innovations to manufacturers and media alike.

"Technology is continuously evolving and sparking change within the automotive industry," said Michael Ettleson, Chicago Auto Show chairman. "By bringing the Technori Pitch event to the Social Media Preview, we're able to provide Chicago entrepreneurs with a powerful platform to reach key influencers as well as fuel conversation around new technologies that may be industry game-changers."

The Technori Pitch event will open with a keynote from Howard Tullman, founder of Tribeca Flashpoint Academy, a premier digital arts college and venture with Robert DeNiro's Tribeca Enterprises. The four startup companies scheduled to present include: parking convenience pioneers, SpotHero and FasPark; auto repair estimate app Body Shop Bids; and budgeting tool Motozuma.com.

The four hopeful businesses pitch their innovation to the audience. Following each presentation, the startups will be on the hot seat for a three-minute Q&A session where the audience submits questions directly from their mobile devices.

"Startup companies have become a global phenomenon, each with the opportunity to become much greater than the sum of its parts," said Seth Kravitz, CEO and co-founder of Technori. "The Chicago Auto Show is a perfect partner to help us achieve our goal of positioning Technori Pitch participants in front of an influential crowd, and we applaud show organizers' efforts in supporting local Chicago startups."

Chicago Auto Show credentialed media are automatically granted access to the Technori Pitch event. Event registration will also be open to the general public in January 2013. Tickets will be priced at $15 and can be purchased at Technori.com/pitch. Ticketed attendees will also have access to the show floor during the Social Media Preview from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
