Automotive Supply Chain Forum

Accelerating the transition to an electrified UK automotive industry

Automotive Supply Chain Forum

Brought to you in association with the SMMT, the Automotive Supply Chain Forum is the dedicated trade event for the UK's automotive supply chain on the 6-8 June 2023 at the NEC, Birmingham.

Taking place in the context of fast-paced change and a small window of opportunity for UK suppliers and manufacturers.

As powertrains shift to all electric and vehicle designs are constantly required to innovate, the Forum brings suppliers face to face with those responsible for driving innovation to develop technologies, explore opportunities and to win business. UK Government has set a clear goal to end the of sale of pure petrol and diesel cars and vans in 2027 – meaning the automotive industry is required to make a more significant and advanced commitment than any other major car or van market.

 The event is perfectly timed as British manufacturers are bringing back production to the UK in a “reshoring” push to try to address the supply-chain chaos caused by COVID, logistic pain points, global disruption, all compounded by ongoing EU legislation and regulation complexities.

This is the your company's opportunity to be in the right place at the right time...
