Hundreds of automotive industry leaders from vehicle manufacturers, leasing, rental, service providers and major fleets are expected at a key industry conference this year.

Automotive Outlook 2018 will provide the critical insight automotive leaders need to inform their strategic planning for the future when it takes place on November 7, at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge in London.

The conference is designed to deliver actionable insights to industry leaders about their most pressing questions, including future fleet strategies, the impact of Brexit negotiations on the automotive sector, the short and long-term impact of changing consumer attitudes to vehicle ownership and the strategic importance of devolution on UK transport strategy.

With the automotive industry facing an unprecedented series of challenges in the coming years, Automotive Outlook 2018 will deliver a competitive advantage to delegates with actionable insight about the outlook for their sectors.

Key speakers at the event include:

  • Steve Yianni, ex chief executive, Transport Systems Catapult
  • Stephen Joseph, chief executive, Campaign for Better Transport
  • Darren Jukes, leader of industry, industrial products & services partner, PricewaterhouseCoopers
  • Hannah Pickstone, head of research, Sewells Research & Insight

Industry leaders will be able to engage directly with expert speakers to maximise the value gained from the day. And, as Automotive Outlook 2018 takes place prior to the annual FN50 Dinner in the evening, it offers guests enhanced networking opportunities on one day and all under one roof.

Chris Lester, event director, said: “With the UK automotive industry facing unprecedented levels of disruption in the coming years, this high-level briefing will provide a framework of insight on which to build future business strategies.

“We have carefully selected speakers with a keen understanding of market developments to ensure key learnings from the event will directly enhance strategic boardroom discussions.”
