SMMT International Automotive Summit Live 2020

Tuesday 23 June 2020

The SMMT International Automotive Summit Live 2020 will be held on Tuesday 23 June. The Summit, now in its twelfth year, has established itself as one of the most high-profile automotive events in the UK. The event will bring together more than 350 delegates from across the industry, government and the international media.

Given the global restrictions in relation to COVID-19 and concern for the health and wellbeing of all involved, the Summit will now be in the format of an online event. The virtual nature of this year’s event will enable the Summit to reach an even broader audience from our membership and key industry stakeholders.

The condensed 2-hour agenda will provide an opportunity to discuss how to facilitate the return to business and to international trade once possible, and a forum to analyse the potential for the next decade in the areas of ULEV adoption and future mobility.

Speakers include:

  • Volkswagen AG, Head of Group Sales, Dr. Christian Dahlheim
  • Bentley Motors Chairman and CEO Adrian Hallmark
  • Ford of Britain, Executive Director, Business Transformation, Dr. Graham Hoare OBE
  • Financial Times Economic Editor, Chris Giles will deliver an economic overview.

The panels will look at:

  • Back to Business – Scaling up Manufacturing
  • Back to Business – International Trade
