Why you should come?

The global car industry is changing as new manufacturing technologies, electric and autonomous cars and shared mobility are spreading, and the challenges arising from these developments are exacerbated by the weight of regulations, the slowdown of Western economies and the accompanying lower demand for cars, and also by increased competition from new market entrants. Car industry players contribute 30% to Hungary's total industrial output, so the challenges of the vehicle industry weigh heavily on the entire Hungarian economy.

At the Automotive Industry 2020 conference, jointly organised by Portfolio and the Association of the Hungarian Automotive Industry (MAGE), top Hungarian vehicle manufacturers and suppliers will talk about how to prepare for future challenges, from digitalisation to compliance with ever-tighter regulations. Unique stories and case studies will reveal how to remain competitive amidst the turmoil of changing challenges, how to tackle the most burning issues of the labour market, and how to adopt the technologies of the future that may bring deliverance.
