Why Attend
Dubai Car Factory

The Middle East and Africa is a region of tremendous automotive and supply chain opportunity. Light vehicle sales are anticipated to rise around 25% by 2023 to reach 6m units, along with growth in production, aftermarket sales, regional and global trade flows. Across this vast geography, with diverse economic, political and infrastructure systems, logistics is the key to unlocking potential.

Located in the logistical powerhouse of Dubai, Automotive Logistics Middle East & North Africa will serve as the industry’s Gateway to Growth in this region. It will bring together vehicle manufacturers and suppliers, distributors, government officials, dealers, logistics and technology providers to share insights and best practice in choosing the right supply chain locations, partners, systems and processes.

Thought provoking keynote sessions, panel discussions, Q&As and practical ideas labs combined with extensive networking will inform, educate, inspire and provide you with the connections needed to design and optimise your supply chains across the region.

Complimentary places are open for vehicle makers and parts suppliers. Early Booking discounts are also available for a limited period. Book now to secure your place
