Automotive Industry 2017

2017.05.25

Topics:

  • Executives’ roundtable: Solutions of the future in the present of the vehicle industry
  • Digital shift in practice: what should be kept in mind when planning and implementing a development project? Corporate case studies
  • Advancing of the IT sector, the appearance of IT companies in the supply chain
  • Labour market roundtable – How would we imagine the “company of the future” besides the expansion of digitalization and tech-companies?
  • R+D+I and alternative drive modes (autonomous driving, electric cars), the regulation of self-driving cars

Western civilization has experienced three industrial revolutions so far - after the steam engine, the assembly line and automation the new, fourth industrial revolution is taking place today. The latest industrial revolution is about physical machines and objects connecting into an information network, real economy is integrating into a single, giant intelligent information system. Industry 4.0 is capable of giving answers to the challenges of the newfangled revolution, primarily to the total digitalization of the industrial processes. It is, however, not only about the spread of technology, but also about the paradigm shift of business processes - new job roles, new products, supply chains, production processes come into being and IT knowledge is becoming even more valuable. And who stays out misses out.

Therefore, it is not by chance that those wishing to keep their competitiveness are planning to grow quickly in this area: there is an increased demand on the smart business solutions of the future, the presence of IT companies in the supply chains is becoming more pronounced and we are getting closer and closer to self driving cars becoming available on the market. The joint conference of Portfolio and MAGE 4 will be about where this technological-innovation zugzwang will lead the motor vehicle industry, about what effect it will have on the labour market and about how the sector can prepare for the challenges of the digital competition.

We do not send any kind of ticket or voucher. Each participant is added to the conference registration list upon online check-in, which also includes the lecturers and the sponsors' guests. The participants will only need a business card and a signature at the conference location, entering the event at the registration desk. Following a quick registration our guests may enter the area of the event.



We will send a confirmation email in the case of online registration. (The data and the "Conditions of Registration, Payment and Cancellation" have to be accepted during registration.) We will send a Fee Requesting Notice by email based on the data that are approved in the course of registration after the acceptance the "Conditions of Registration, Payment and Cancellation". The fee has to be paid within 8 workdays of the confirmation of the registration. The invoice will be issued after payment. We will post the invoice to you to the address that is given in the registration. An online application is classified as an order. Paying the participation fee in advance is a prerequisite of participating at the event. We accept cancellations and provide a full refund - EXCLUSIVELY IN WRITING at the address of conference@portfolio.hu - till 12 hours on the fifth workday before the event. In the case of cancellations made after this time the participation may be assigned, but the complete fee has to be paid. We are not in a position to accept cancellations made via phone or in any other verbal form. It is not possible to cancel participation in the case of registrations that are made after the cancellation deadline. In the case of registrations made 1 or 2 workdays before the event it may happen that the transfer of the participation fee will not be credited to our bank account yet, therefore in this case it is possible to transfer the fee on the first workday after the event. Since online applications are classified as orders, we are not in a position to accept ex post complaints - including absence from the event, because of the lack of transferring the fee - after the cancellation deadline. The complete fee has to be paid in this case as well - provided no written cancellation was received by us till the cancellation deadline.
