2017 Event

On 11 May 2017, we welcomed over 200 representatives from policy and business communities and 25 prominent speakers from government, industry and academia. We also hosted dedicated networking sessions with key players in the automated cars ecosystem. 


The future of transport is shifting rapidly towards connected and autonomous vehicles. Europe, currently the second largest market for connected cars, is estimated to outpace North America and create the largest market by 2020. The pace of this progress means that regulation that protects public interests whilst encouraging innovation is continually evolving.


Connected Cars Europe brings all parties to the table for discussion around security and privacy, connectivity requirements, liability, consumer protection and public and private sector collaboration. We discuss how to ensure the economic potential of connected cars is fulfilled and the trends predicted for the future. Participants will explore how automakers are flourishing in partnership with dynamic new entrants and what all this means for traditional business models. 


This was an exciting opportunity to be part of a high level debate around the regulation of connected and autonomous vehicles and the business challenges and opportunities that come with it.
