CBBC Automotive Roundtable Meeting

CBBC Event

November 01
This event is specifically for British companies in the automotive sector who are currently doing business in China or plan to do so.
 
Overall car sales might have decreased over the past year, but China is still a land of opportunity and UK companies are well placed to take advantage. China’s rapid expansion has created a shortage of engineering talent and advanced technology expertise. This has opened up clear commercial opportunities for UK companies engaged in engineering, industrial design, production of low-carbon materials, battery technology, powertrain technology, V2V and V2I technology, test facilities, the exterior and interior design of a number of types of transportation, and automotive engineering training to name but a few areas. China respects British industry and the ‘Made in the UK’ brand is as strong as ever.
 
The CBBC Automotive Roundtable is the perfect forum to stay up-to-date with industry news in China. We will be hearing from the PTL Group, as well as the thoughts and opinions of your peers as per Chatham House rules.

Our previous Roundtable was held in Northampton earlier this year and we were warmly hosted by both the University and Borough Council. There was a lot of very useful discussion about attendees’ experience of market-entry and looking for partners. There was an analysis of the various Chinese automotive trade shows and their respective value to UK companies – particularly useful given the huge range of national and regional events in China! We also heard about trends in Chinese international M&A within the automotive industry.
