"This conference focused on a timely, hot topic in Automotive as the global vehicle manufacturers seek to redefine the roles and responsibilities of their suppliers. I was impressed that the organisers had managed to secure very senior level speakers from leading enterprises covering the whole spectrum of stakeholders: OEM’s, suppliers, marketplaces, IT and consultants. The quality of presentations was high and we were able to share valuable, real-world insights and experiences from many perspectives. As there is much uncertainty in this area, delegates gained real added-value from the conference. Recognising that this is a dynamic and fast moving business, I would recommend a re-run of this very successful event in a year’s time."
