From Last Year

Last year we were proud to welcome 747 attendees, to the World Automotive Conference!

With over 20 countries represented, 30% C-Level and 26% Director+ attendees WAC 2017 was the most senior and international event yet. Key features included the brand-new Start-Up Zone, where attendees had the chance to meet both international and local game-changers. The numerous live demos across the exhibition floor were a fantastic new addition, as well as of course the dedicated Ladies Industry Breakfast, where we were proud to welcome 50+ industry leaders.

““World Class Event, in such a Dynamic city like Istanbul to discuss emerging trends in automotive and mobility with all the right technology and business partners. Two packed days full of ideas exchange and business opportunities in cross domains... For Panasonic Silicon Valley Center, it is one of the “must” events in the world...” ”

Panasonic Executive Director

““The number of people still in the conference room by 5pm on day 2 was incredible! Actually across the two days there was more people than any event I’ve been to this year, in a market I never thought had the potential... Your competition should be scared"”
