Known for “driving the growth of Georgia’s automotive industry,” the Georgia Automotive Manufactures Association (GAMA) recently held its supplier expo and quarterly meeting at the Douglasville Conference Center on Nov. 11 and 12. The event attracted more than 100 members of the automotive manufacturing industry with interests in the growth, profitability, and continual improvement of automotive manufacturing in Georgia, the underlining mission of GAMA.

A supplier expo held both days of the event, featured 30 exhibitors showcasing various industry related products and services. On the first evening of the event, GAMA held a networking social that featured a magic show by professional magician Paul Esterline. The performance gave an entertaining interpretation of the event topic centered on how profits can disappear like “magic.” GAMA members and exhibitors attending the social also enjoyed refreshments and hors d'oeuvres prepared by Carole Parks Catering.

Keynote speaker William A. Strauss, senior economist and economic advisor for the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, spoke on the outlook of the automotive industry, followed by special presentations on environmental issues, protecting trade secrets, and business development strategies.

“We have had the pleasure of hosting several unique events at the Douglasville Conference Center, such as the GAMA expo and meeting. It’s very rewarding to help businesses and organizations improve the effectiveness of their meetings by providing great customer service and an excellent environment that fosters productivity,” said Director of Conference Center Operations Jennifer Bean.
