#CONNECT europe: the first European and International Automotive Mobility Forum

CECRA and INFOPRO DIGITAL GROUP are pleased to welcome you to the Evian Resort on September 20th and 21st, 2021 for the first edition of #CONNECT europe.

In a prestigious setting, ideal for networking and business meetings, we offer two days of conferences and workshops around three major issues: Green Deal and the future of mobility; Big Data & Connectivity; Contractual relationships between manufacturers, distributors and repairers. 

In the wake of the pandemic that rocked the automotive world, everyone will have to help re-write the industry’s playbook and over the next ten years, deep transformations will inevitably ensue

We have the pleasure of welcoming the largest European dealers’ groups and repairers, as well as leaders from the upstream automotive world with car makers and service companies. The highest level of the European Commission will also be with us, as well as international leaders from countries such as the USA, Canada, China and India.

This European forum is intended to provide concrete answers and shed light on the future of mobility in Europe.

Thanks to the depth and breadth of know-how, combined with the shared ambition, this event is destined to enable truly productive debates around important European mobility issues. The many profound changes we’ll be dealing with during the inaugural edition of this forum all share a common thread: employment. The current technological revolution is forcing the European automotive industry to chart a new course for growth. And that’s precisely what this year’s event will focus on.

We are delighted to welcome you and share together what we want to build in Europe for our businesses.
