We welcomed several new partners for our annual Technology Innovation Day at the Porsche Silverstone Experience Centre!
The annual Boston Technology Innovation Day assembles our most innovative partners and prominent guests for an opportunity to share ideas, present the latest solutions, discuss sales opportunities and provide 1-2-1 support.
As usual, we hosted our 2019 T.I.D. at the Porsche Driving Experience Centre in Silverstone, next to the famous Hangar Straight. After a breakfast of champions in the Porsche restaurant, our Head of Product Development, Jon Howard, kicked-off our Technology Innovation Day with a presentation about Boston and the agenda for the day.
Following the Boston introductions, attendees were split into groups for the first section of the day. The presentations included roadmaps, benchmarks, product releases and special NDA news from 6 of our technology partners.

Parmesan Gnocchi, Sea Bream, Chicken Supreme and Bread & Butter Pudding were just a few highlights from the 3-course lunch served at the Porsche restaurant before attendees were treated to before the most anticipated activities of the day - the driving experiences!
Thankfully, there were no bottlenecks on the track while our attendees throttled Porsche 911’s, Boxster’s and Cayman’s through their paces with a ‘relaxing’ Off-Road Cayenne experience to slow the adrenaline rush.
Highlights of the driving activities featured attendees trying to hold their nerve and keep the car straight on the Kick-plate and Ice Hill. Additionally, demonstrating the power of these innovative cars through launch control, brake-testing and the handling circuit was just as lively!
Continuing from last year’s schedule, the Human Performance Centre activity was substituted for 1-2-1’s to give attendees valuable time with our partners. In-depth discussions regarding earlier presentations, requirements and solutions wrapped-up in a 10-minute, speed-dating style format!
