What our
participants
are saying

“Thanks for inviting me as a speaker to the 2nd Annual Automotive Safety Summit in Düsseldorf, Germany. It was a great event and good opportunity for networking. I learned a lot and was also happy that my talk on vehicle sensor-based (near) real time safety services for connected cars was well received. Looking forward to the next time, thanks for the organization.”
