Disrupted Industries – the example of the automotive industry

Covid-19 may either be seen as a threat to existing structures in the automotive industry or as a catalyser for overdue changes. Experienced industry experts and lawyers from leading ‘car nations’ will focus on two key aspects that are being discussed in the automotive industry under the threatening experience of the Covid-19 pandemic, i.e.: (i) How does Covid-19 and the various considerations and fears around it impact the structure of supply chains in the automotive industry? Trends and long-term changes; and (ii) Will Covid-19 lead to re-thinking the antagonism in future mobility concepts between individual and/or mass transportation? What’s the view of the industry?

Speakers will share their views with the audience in an interactive session which will show how lawyers can efficiently assist their clients in meeting day-by-day requirements they are facing in a fast changing industry.
