Setting the automotive agenda

The automotive industry is in flux. Disrupted by COVID-19, technology and new market entrants, it is going to change more in the next 5 to 10 years than it has in the last 50 (Mary T. Barra).

Automakers are now faced with protecting existing business whilst preparing for seismic change. Somethings however are clear; failure to evolve products and business models will prove fatal. And, timing is everything.

Reuters Events: Automotive 2021 is the global meeting to unite CEOs and board members from OEMs to take to the stage and set the automotive industry agenda for years to come.

Reaching a global audience, the event will shape the future strategies across business-critical topics including electrification, connectivity, autonomous vehicles, sustainability, supply chain and customer-first strategies including retail and marketing.

This is the most senior OEM driven meeting of all time.
