CAR Symposium

The automotive industry is facing the greatest transformation in its history. Electric mobility, the integration of digital technologies and products, reshaping established processes, as well as adapting to changing frameworks and emerging competitors are the main topics within this complex transformation.

The economic development, coupled with the pressure to operate on sustainable levels for CO2-reduction adds to the challenges.

At our Car Symposium on June 5th and 6th, 2024, we and our partners will elaborate on these topics, discussing solution strategies. Our top speakers will present insights into the current status of our industry and together with you, we shall define innovative ways for the future of mobility.
