CEE Automotive Forum 2019 Flashback

The Forum has been taking place in the Czech Republic for 5 years. After that it moved to Hungary and successfully brought decision makers from numerous international companies to the country. New speakers and topics, B2B meetings, site visits to the most innovative projects, CEE Automotive Awards and much more. In 2021 we will all meet in Hungary again. Let's see where the Forum comes next year!

It was not only a great event but also a useful opportunity to setup business connections and to have an overview and reflection about the current trends and situation in the automotive market.
