2020 France Japan Automotive Conference/Webinar
Market Changes and Supply Chains Risks


Following the success of 2018 and 2019, we are delighted to announce the 3rd edition of the Automotive Conference, this year focusing on Market Changes and Supply Chains, on Thursday, September 17, 2020 from 16:30.

In a context of numerous industry changes, including new technology, climate and COVID-19 crises, that affect both demand and supply, value chains and supply chains need to be revamped. Players of the car-making industry need more than ever to quickly address market changes and supply chain strategies, to mitigate risks and drive change.

After an overview to evaluate current state and future trends of the mobility industry, French and Japanese experts will:

- discuss transformation of the mobility ecosystems, looking at impacts on value chain, new business models and technology;

- present  how  supply chain strategies should be reshaped, focusing on risk management and improved governance.


Join this event, designed to help industry leaders and policy makers navigate future developments, to get forward-thinking and integrated perspective and to discover future trends.
