Covid 19 Automotive Manufacturing Supply Chain Resilience

Leading content providers for the automotive manufacturing industry, American Business Conferences and LBCG (London Business Conferences Group Ltd) have joined forces to create a new, global initiative that will provide OEMs and their manufacturing and supply chain partners with a critically-timed opportunity to discuss how solutions for commencing commercially viable automotive production can be achieved.


Taking place entirely online on Friday September 4 2020 at 0900 Central Time, this one-day event will include valuable contributions and insights from OEMs in North America, and their counterparts in Europe and Asia on safely re-starting automotive manufacturing.

Participants joining this forum will be able to hear what has been achieved so far, and how supply chains can be managed to build greater resilience in the future.



At a time when the industry has seen a huge drop in demand from consumers for new vehicles, OEMS are at varying stages of introducing new measures and new technologies in order to safely operate their manufacturing plants.

There now lies a significant challenge, aswell as a huge opportunity ahead, for companies to return to commercially viable levels of production while operating in this new, changed environment by making manufacturing more efficient, while simultaneously introducing the measures required to adhere to the official requirements and guidance on Covid-19 management.



By the time of the event in September, many manufacturers will have already recommenced production in many parts of the world. New technologies for physical distancing, temperature control, tracing, testing and worker safety will be  at pilot stage. What can be learned from the early adopters of these new technologies and their individual implementation journeys? What is working and what is not?

Participating in this virtual event will enable attendees to understand the state of play in the industry and hear directly from others' experiences in order to remain agile and responsive in an ever-changing environment.
