2016 SMMT International Automotive Summit

The eighth SMMT International Automotive Summit brought together more than 330 delegates from across the industry, including 22 world-class speakers and 50-plus members of the media.

Following the UK’s vote to leave the European Union, the Summit provided an opportunity for discussion on the challenges ahead for the sector, alongside the day’s theme of sustainability.

The event saw the launch of the SMMT’s 17th Sustainability Report, which shows industry turnover grew 7.3% last year to a record £71.6 billion, with the sector now contributing £18.9 billion annually to the economy. 814,000 UK jobs are now directly dependent on the sector – an increase of 17,000 – while spend on R&D hit an all-time high of £2.5 billion.
