The Congress, whose theme is “Connected Mobility 3.0: IT Moves the Auto Industry,” takes place at the futuristic Siemens Crystal in the London Docklands July 1 and 2.

More than 200 delegates are expected to attend the two-day conference, which starts on July 1 with a VIP tour of Audi”s virtual dealership, Audi City. A clear focus throughout the Congress will be the connected car, which is set to revolutionize personal mobility in coming years. Auto executives will also offer new insights into electric mobility, connected retail, big data, autonomous driving and driver distraction.
“The coming new era of personal mobility presents huge opportunities as well as some major challenges,” said Arjen Bongard, editor in chief of automotiveIT International. “We expect to host an in-depth discussion of both at the automotiveIT International Congress.”
