This past July, Avis introduced its new mobile app Avis Now to further enhance the car rental experience for its customers. Being one of three corporations controlling the majority of the car rental industry today, Avis has focused on branding itself as an innovator in the space. Techweek aims to celebrate innovators across various industries, which is why we are so excited to have Scott Deaver of Avis take the stage at the Techweek Dallas Summit 2016.
Techweek recognizes that Dallas is more than just Cowboys football and BBQ. Dallas has a rich history of business formation and a vibrant tech ecosystem that should be appreciated. With the goal of helping to facilitate conversations and cultivate relationships in the tech space, Techweek knows that Dallas was not a city to pass up. Techweek Dallas (Oct. 31 to Nov. 4) will not only feature thought-provoking panels and an exciting startup competition, but will also provide three nights of concerts with headlining acts Matt & Kim and Purity Ring. Be sure to grab your Summit tickets to hear Scott talk about Avis’ move into the mobile app scene on the Techweek Dallas stage on November 3.
