The development of e-mobility, digitalization and fully autonomous driving is now progressing at an unstoppable pace. As a result, cars and mobility are following new paradigms. Established car manufacturers are no longer competing with IT and Internet companies but cooperating with them as technology partners and mobility service providers.

The conference aims to enable both speakers and participants to develop an insight into the future of the automotive industry and to follow practice-oriented presentations that provide suitable skills and knowledge for day-to-day operations.
