The SMMT International Automotive Summit has become an integral fixture in the UK automotive calendar, providing an opportunity for the automotive industry to come together to discuss the issues and opportunities impacting their businesses and the industry as a whole.

The event will attract an audience of hundreds of senior level representatives from across the breadth of the industry, including vehicle manufacturers, component manufacturers, aftermarket, government and the media for a day-long conference in central London.
