BUDAPEST, AQUAWORLD RESORT****

13. Regional Automotive Supplier Conference

Future forward: digital and sustainable

Join us again this year in Budapest at the 13th Regional Automotive Supplier Conference, at Aquaworld Resort!

The automotive industry is undergoing an astonishing transformation, with the shift to new technologies posing immense challenges for both automakers and automotive suppliers. Decision-makers now face multifaceted pressures: environmental consciousness from regulators and consumer demand for comfort and accessibility.

Meeting these demands requires continuous automation and technological innovation. Today, digitalization and sustainability are essential for achieving and maintaining competitiveness across the industry.

This year, our conference is centered around these themes, along with our annual review of current standard changes and other challenges affecting suppliers within the automotive sector.

As regional license partners of VDA QMC, we provide access to knowledge collected by the German Association of the Automotive Industry on quality and quality management for automotive industry players in Hungary, Slovenia, Croatia, North Macedonia, Serbia, and Bosnia. The conference serves as an excellent platform to showcase the latest developments from VDA QMC.

The first day of the event will feature presentations and panel discussions. On the second day, interactive small-group workshops, led by experts, will address the most pressing issues of the year.

Opportunities for networking and building new professional relationships will not be confined to the lecture halls and coffee breaks. Our B2B area will host pre-arranged business meetings, allowing attendees to meet with procurement colleagues from OEMs and TIER 1 suppliers. Here, experiences and ideas can be shared, and new business relationships can be forged with industry leaders.

Additionally, attendees will have the chance to participate in factory tours, a highly anticipated event that showcases the thriving automotive ecosystem of the regio.

Exhibitors seeking to introduce their products and services to a targeted audience will have dedicated space to present themselves and cultivate new business opportunities. If your company seeks potential partners among automotive suppliers and OEMs, this is the perfect opportunity to present your products or services to our audience!

Don’t miss out on this exceptional event!
