May 20th 2021 | 1pm - 4.30 BST | 2pm - 5.30 CEST

Register free for this event and learn from global industry leaders how EMEA’s automotive manufacturing industry is responding to the threats and maximising new opportunities facing the sector.

Global uncertainties, price wars, and supply chain disruption stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic are resulting in new operational and technological challenges for the automotive sector.

As a result, digital technologies are transforming the automotive industry and disrupting traditional business models. New business opportunities related to Industry 4.0 are emerging and companies must adapt to the new environment.

Automotive players are having to accelerate their adoption of digital technologies and drive data based decisions across their supply chain. From their processes, product design, procurement, production and all the way to sales and marketing – data is becoming key.

Several automotive companies have steadily enhanced their digital capabilities through re-organization, introduction of AI, creation of digitalization business units and task forces, while many others are partnering, acquiring and forming joint ventures to create a more resilient business.

Serendipitously, the digital transformation of the automotive industry is also synchronized with other seismic changes like electrification, autonomous driving, and the digital customer. The legacy players, to some extent, have been shocked by the speed with which electrification became relevant, and other trends are not so different in adoption as well.

The increasing global need of industries to be more sustainable and responsible is also driving the digitalization, resilience and transparency of supply chains.

Join this crucial discussion and discover tangible outcomes and innovative strategies to maximise these opportunities, position your business for growth and increase your resilience in the times ahead.
