SMMT Events

Open Forum

SMMT Open Forum Digital is a new digital event series focussed on automotive and supply chain issues.

Bringing you the latest from across the automotive manufacturing sector, this digital event will focus on sharing the latest updates from across the industry on the issues that matter the most.

The aim is to help companies involved in automotive, especially manufacturers of all sizes, explore what to consider during these unprecedented and increasingly fluid times, and importantly what support is out there to help them, be it through funding, insights or advice and guidance.

Stay tuned for details of our upcoming Open Forum events.
