Speakers will give you insider tips on your next purchase:

  1. Will these apps be included as upgrades or after market?
  2. What features should you consider when buying your next vehicle?
  3. How will safety concerns be integrated with Internet systems?
  4. Will smartphone apps be found on the dashboard?
  5. What to expect for 2013 models?
  6. What trends will show up for new for electric and hybrid vehicles?
  7.  What's hot in the after market categories?
  8. How will connectivity interface with hybrid and electric cars? 
  9. How to make buying decision for 2013 models?

Real Office Centers just opened their ROC–Santa Monica location at 604 Arizona. Located in the heart of Santa Monica’s high-demand market, the newest ROC location will appeal to fast-growing companies in the technology, media and entertainment sectors.

Real Office Centers – continually redefining the office environment.  The 44,260-square-foot ROC–Santa Monica location, last occupied by Google, will have more than 200 socially conscious, shared-workspace environments with space for as many as 150 small companies. Real Office Centers is an industry-leader in shared office space, creating social environments that are both engaging and productive for up-and-coming entrepreneurs.

This three-storey property has already generated significant interest from prospective young and tech-savvy tenants due to the limited supply of creative office space within the West Los Angeles area.

ROC–Santa Monica will offer industry-leading shared office environments geared towards the high-tech and entertainment industries, which make up a significant proportion of Santa Monica’s business and community landscape.

ROC–Santa Monica is undergoing a multi-million dollar interior reconfiguration, which will include conference facilities, a kitchen, coffee bar and top-of-the-line furnishings.

KarFarm  is an online car marketplace focused on getting consumers the best deals in the most convenient way without spending money, too much time, or risking their privacy. There is no money paid to use the service and no limitations on how a consumer uses the service to get the car they want.

 KarFarm has streamlined the decision process by only listing what is in stock. No longer will consumers waste time configuring a car only to find that it is not available. KarFarm then lets the consumer choose which dealers they would like to work with based on factors that are important to them; from past reviews to language. Consumers can then purchase vehicles in a reverse auction with their selected dealers. Because the best deal is not necessarily the cheapest one; KarFarm presents these bids in a detailed yet easy to understand fashion. KarFarm understands that convenience extends to privacy and so, throughout the entire process, no personal information is required.
KarFarm offers car dealers an opportunity to go beyond simply another retail channel or even simple data about product or price points. KarFarm can help dealers with more in-depth data regarding the even more essential part of the business; the dealers themselves and the deals they make.
