Why you should come?

What are the expectations regarding the global car industry in 2016? Will the Hungarian market be able to provide a sufficient workforce for us to sustain growth? How can small- and medium companies access the development policy funds and sources? What methodologies and tools are available for the customers and their suppliers to prevent qualitative risks? What role may Hungarian suppliers play in the development of future designs? What short- and medium-term consequences may the appearance of alternative propulsion methods and the increasing presence of tech companies in the vehicle industry have? These are some of the topics that will be open for discussion at Portfolio’s and MAGE's (The Association of the Hungarian Automotive Industry) joint conference, on which the most influential experts, opinion-shapers, company leaders and policy decision makers will make an appearance.

Will 2016 be a year of challenges? The diesel scandal, the slowing of China, the prospects of the Euro zone, the recession in Russia and Brazil, the dive of oil prices, callbacks and the unrealized abroad investments of 2015 – and at the same time, an increased need to keep up with the technological developments that indicate the future. The prospects of global economy and their effects on the capabilities of the Hungarian vehicle industry holds several challenges for OEM companies, system integrators, technology suppliers and material manufacturers.
