Why you should come?

Hungary’s automotive industry has been developing dynamically over the last few years, in parallel with which the number of employees in the sector has also been skyrocketing. These are taking place in a period when the more than 100-year-old business model of vehicle manufacturing is shaken to the core by the spread of alternative drive technologies, and the appearance of networked and increasingly autonomous vehicles and car sharing systems.

That is why the specialist conference organised jointly by Portfolio and the Association of the Hungarian Automotive Industry (MAGE) for the 5th time aims at providing a comprehensive overview with the help of local and regional players and experts of the key global trends and challenges which could meaningfully impact the business models of automotive companies.

This year, the presentations and panel discussions in the morning will be complemented by a thematic networking section in a roundtable fashion in the afternoon programme. Expert moderators will be assisting the practical work at the thematically grouped interactive roundtables, answering questions and urging participants to give answers to open issues. Make your pick of the available topics that tickle your imagination and take part in the interactive exchange of views right at the table!
