The auto motor und sport Congress 2022 will take place on September 22, 2022.

Start: 09:30

End: 17:00

Moderator: Birgit Priemer, auto motor und sport Editor-in-Chief

On 22 September, 2022, the major auto motor und sport CONGRESS on the mobility of the future will take place for the 13th time.

This year we will be looking at the theme of "sustainability” – a strategy and its consequences:

  • How are supply chains being adjusted and monitored?
  • What do we actually mean by the term sustainability, and how serious will the transition be for suppliers and the automotive industry?
  • In view of the current situation, we naturally also want to place a strong focus on the issue of energy supply: What alternatives are there – and how can we significantly accelerate their expansion?
  • This also requires us to look at the necessary political conditions which are going to be a key element of a smart energy supply and sustainable mobility concepts.

These intriguing questions will be answered by our prestigious guests, who you can view on our homepage.
