The APC talk about changing attitudes and fostering stronger automotive R&D at Automechanika, Birmingham

Automechanika, the world’s leading exhibition for the automotive supply chain and aftermarket, will come to the UK for the first time next week.

The show will take place at the N.E.C, Birmingham on 7-9 June, hosting over 550 exhibitors from across the world. The event originally planned to take place in a single hall at the N.E.C, however due to popular demand it has been forced to expand to 3 halls. The show will feature a range of technologies from a host of UK innovators.

Over 60 talks across 3 theatres will take place at Automechanika, including APC’s own Jon Beasley, Director of Projects. Jon’s talk titled ‘Changing Attitudes and Fostering stronger automotive research and development in the UK’ will take place on 9 June, at 12-12.30pm, in the Keynote Theatre. Be sure to attend to find out what the APC is doing to help support the UK automotive industry.

The event will host a range of other key talks, including the ‘UKTI Exporting is GREAT – Automotive Opportunities and UKTI Support’ taking place on the 7 June, at 2:15 – 2:45pm, in the Keynote Theatre, featuring a talk from Lawrence Davies, CEO of the Automotive Investment Organisation. There will also be talks from the likes of Mike Hakes, CEO of the SMMT, and other key figures.
