Automechanika Birmingham almost here

Innovation will be at the forefront of the ‘new look’ agenda for Automechanika Birmingham when the doors open on the three-day show in just over one week’s time.

Among the exciting initiatives set to drive this year’s event will be a raft of keynote presentations, panels, forums and seminars to name a few of the opportunities available, set to draw, inspire and motivate visitors attending the industry’s three-day showcase on 5-7 June.

One major coup for the show this year is the Women in Innovation panel, a Who’s Who of industry’s key influencers, chaired by Dr Julia E. Saini, global vice president of Frost & Sullivan, which will feature contributions from top keynote speakers including Jo Lewis, colours & materials design manager of McLaren Automotive and Steph Savill, founder of FOXY Lady Drivers Club, the UK’s fastest growing Motoring Club for women.

Other key ‘innovation’ highlights include: Motorsport Valley Innovation – an interactive showcase of cutting edge technologies; Innovation Forum in the Keynote Theatre on Wednesday 6 June; Tomorrow’s Mobility – an area dedicated to connected and autonomous vehicles, electrification, ultra-low emissions and battery technology; and Tomorrow’s Mobility Forum in the Keynote Theatre on Wednesday 6 June.

Simon Albert, managing director of Automechanika Birmingham said, ‘Our offering this year focuses on innovation, which is playing a major part within the industry and will continue to play a pivotal role across the globe over the next few years and even decades, with the connected car, emerging technology, electrification and digitalisation all transforming the way we live.’
