"Think Digital"

Dear Sir or Madam,

The 10th International Suppliers Fair (IZB) will take place in the German city of Wolfsburg from 16th to 18th October 2018. After being successfully held for the ninth time in 2016, the trade fair has cemented its status as one of the world's leading international showcase events for automotive suppliers, attracting around 800 exhibiting companies from 32 different countries. One of the main factors behind the success of last year's IZB was its highly topical focus on the theme of "Mobility Goes Digital". You can find out more about the IZB at www.izb-online.com.

The company Wolfsburg AG traditionally hosts a congress on the day before the start of the IZB. Next year's congress has been given the name of #Digital Mobility Conference in order to highlight the main topic of the IZB 2018, "Think Digital".

The development of e-mobility, digitalisation and fully autonomous driving is now progressing at an unstoppable pace. As a result, cars and mobility are following new paradigms. Established car manufacturers are no longer competing with IT and Internet companies but instead cooperating with them as technology partners and mobility service providers. The challenge facing automotive manufacturers and supplier companies is to play a leading role in shaping these developments. The conference aims to enable both speakers and participants to develop an insight into the future of the automotive industry and to experience practice-oriented presentations that equip them with suitable skills and knowledge for their day-to-day work.

The extremely interesting programme of our expert conference will provide you with information on ground-breaking developments in the automotive industry, its intensive cooperation with the IT sector and future strategies throughout the entire industry. Individual workshops and an exhibition accompanying the event will also make the conference an outstanding platform for the transfer of knowledge and exchange of experiences.

We look forward to welcoming you to Wolfsburg next year for the #Digital Mobility Conference on 15th October 2018.

Your IZB Conference Team
