CEO Breakfast: a special kind of Kick-Off

CEO Breakfast

This year, Automechanika Frankfurt will once again kick off with a CEO Breakfast on 10 September at 7 a.m. before the trade fair officially opens its doors. Executives from the industry are invited to network in an exclusive atmosphere. After Mika Häkkinen, football referee-legend Dr. Pierluigi Collina is this year's guest of honour at a Fireside Chat. This will be followed by a high-calibre CEO talk with representatives of Schaeffler, Continental and ZF.

Networking lounges: simply get into a conversation


At the trade fair, you can talk to speakers and experts on various specialised topics and exchange ideas with them. The topic-specific networking lounges, which are located directly in the exhibition halls, are the ideal meeting place:

At the Sustainability Court in Hall 5.0, everything will revolve around strategies for the circular economy, while on Wednesday the focus will be on remanufacturing.  

Meet innovators, engineers and developers who are working on solutions for the mobility of tomorrow in a relaxed lounge atmosphere at the top-class expert forum "Innovation4Mobility" in Hall 3.0, which will cover topics such as electromobility, vehicle-integrated photovoltaics, vehicle-to-grid, software-defined vehicles, sustainable fuels, hydrogen in automotive applications, data platforms and much more.

The body and paint industry will be holding a lively meet & greet in Hall 11.1 in the Lounge, which is located near the centrally located stage. Here you can not only talk to body & paint experts, but also get to know influencers.

In the E-Commerce Lounge in the Festhalle you can talk to professionals about online retail and e-commerce.
