The ESADE Alumni Automotive and Mobility Club, Faconauto and Fecavem are pleased to invite you to the 7th Barcelona Automotive Conference.
One of the main themes of this conference will be alternative energies to petrol and diesel (CNG, LPG, electricity and hydrogen) and particularly their possible impact on the future of dealerships.
One of the other themes will be the steady decline in car ownership and the tendency to regard it as a service. Car sharing, renting and subscription are alternatives to car buying that will be discussed by one panel.
Other themes such as developments in retail, and market and after-sale trends will all make this conference an absolute must for the automotive sector.
