Tech Networking: Electrified 

10th December 11:00 – 12:00

As the industry transitions to a future of ACES (Automated, Connected, Electrified and Services) technologies, the lines between traditional automotive and tech companies will blur.

To help automotive incumbents and disruptors to collaborate and explore these new areas, SMMT runs a networking event titled Tech Networking. This event provides companies with opportunities to network, raise their profile and hear about innovative ideas that are disrupting the automotive industry.

SMMT will host the Electrified edition of the series, with a particular focus on the Road to Zero.

The event will include a 20-minute panel discussion, chaired by SMMT, followed by a five-minute Q&A and then a move to the networking room. Speaker announcements will be released in due course.

Destination Zero or Road to Nowhere?

In this panel discussion we will explore the Road to Zero strategy and the opportunities available for the UK Tech Start-up community to bring their innovative solutions to help the industry reach its destination.
