TWO WORLDS - TWO SPEEDS?
The global automotive industry seems to be divided into premium manufacturers who have experienced significant growth in recent years, and volume manufacturers who are faced with stagnant (or worse) sales numbers. At the same time emerging economies continue to register strong growth in automotive sales, while Europe and Japan are experiencing declining sales and North America seems to follow its own pattern. Will these trends continue or is there some change on the horizon?
During this year’s 28th edition of our annual meeting of the automotive industry, we hope to shed some light on this question. In doing so, we will continue our tradition of providing a premier platform for senior automotive executives, leading academic thinkers and industry experts to exchange ideas about the future of the “industry of industries”. All this will take place on our beautiful IESE campus, overlooking the city of Barcelona and the Mediterranean.
