SMMT International Update July

29 June 2023 #International Update

SMMT has recently returned from California where we hosted the UK Pavilion at the Electric Vehicle Symposium (EVS36) in Sacramento, providing some of the UKs most innovate and exciting companies in electric and zero emission vehicle technology the opportunity to explore new international business opportunities with companies in the US. Read our spotlight article, written by Sarah Holloway at the British Consulate-General Los Angeles to find out more about the electrification market on the US west coast.

We also just held our annual International Automotive Summit, attended by hundreds of key industry contacts where SMMT launched Manifesto 2030; our call to government to commit to five key pledges and to recognise the strategic importance of automotive to the UK economy.

Looking forward, our next activity will be the first webinar as part of our virtual SMMT African roadshow on 4 July focussing on Egypt, one of the continents largest economies. Click here for further details and to register.

We’re also organising the UK Pavilion at Automechanika Dubai, the largest international trade exhibition for the aftermarket sector in the wider Middle East region, from 2 – 4 October. Last year’s edition had over 40,000 visitors and we look forward to providing UK companies with the opportunity to exhibit here.

Other activities we’re supporting or organising include the UK Pavilion at the Daegu & Korea International Future Auto & Mobility Expo (DIFA) in October, the Symposium on International Automotive Technology (SIAT) in India in January 2024, and Automechanika Frankfurt in September 2024.
