ASEAN Automotive Supplier Conference

The ASEAN Automotive Supplier Conference took place from 24th – 25th November, 2015 in Germany. It is one of the most important automotive industry expert gatherings in Europe.

About 150 representatives from international automobile manufacturers and numerous Tier 1 to Tier 3 suppliers followed our invitation. During the conference they benefit from the expert lecturers, panel discussions, individual meetings with the speakers and colleagues from other companies.

Summary: The ASEAN automotive market is recognized as having the highest potential for growth worldwide. But there is no valid general recipe. A tailored strategy is needed to face the specific market characteristics of each country and to benefit from the continuing market integration and harmonization under the ASEAN Economic Community (AEC).

  • Stuttgart, Germany
  • Indonesien, Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam
  • Around 150 representatives from industries like automotive, machinery and equipment, electrical and electronics, as well as service providors.

These and similar topics were addressed in
