Testimonials

Good speaker line-up covering hot industry topics.
Head of Market Intelligence, Nissan Europe

 

Great event with a room full of people dedicated, and responsible, to drive positive (digital) change.
CTO, Geico Taikisha

 

Attending any event such as the FT event is always a great pleasure, but it is also a big strain on time, so personally, I try to do as few as possible and as many where I get the maximum value and the FT events bring together some of the best thinkers, the influencers of the topics that we have been talking about that directly affect our industry and I see it as a very important event for both networking but also policy, thought and discussion to help to shape the future.
CEO, Bentley Motors

 

Essential for anyone leading at the intersection between the established automotive industry and technology-driven disruption.
Partner, The Inzito Partnership

 

It’s been pretty amazing to be with such a great group of people. We’ve had so many CEO’s here and to be included with a group like has been phenomenal. The networking has been really great, I’ve been able to connect with people that I probably normally wouldn’t have in the US and since I am in a global role, that outreach and networking is really important to me.
Global Head of Data, Ford Mobility

 

I love taking part in the FT event very simply because I like talking about our product and I like to talk about the future of the car and I like to talk to people who show interest in these issues and those people you can meet, I can meet here at the FT event, that’s why I gladly come back every year.
CEO, Volvo Cars

 

I think this FT event is fantastic, given the range of people that are attending, so whether it’s from the automotive manufacturers, whether it’s from people like me who are involved in operations, whether it’s from the technology, the digital side of the industry. I think just bringing everybody together in one forum is a real opportunity for some great exchange of views, sharing of ideas, and a real opportunity just to talk about the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead for all of us.
Commissioner, Transport for London
