Autoparts From Spain was present at the 1st edition of Automotive Meetings Madrid

On the 26th and 27th of June in Madrid, the 1st edition of Automotive Meetings Madrid took place. It was an international event focused on the automotive supply chain, with the participation of 203 companies from 19 countries.

Among the participating companies were several that are part of our Autoparts From Spain platform, such as Talleres Orán, Gestamp, and Grupo Antolín.

Automotive Meetings is the 1st B2B networking event held in Spain aimed at enhancing relationships among different operators in the international automotive supply chain. The event was organized by ABE (Advanced Business Events), in collaboration with SERNAUTO, the Spanish Association of Automotive Suppliers.

Among the participating companies were vehicle manufacturers like Renault, Seat, Ford, GM, Land Rover, Jaguar Spain, and Iveco; and suppliers from various levels of the supply chain such as Continental Engineering Services, Faurecia, Fujikura Automotive Europe, Gonvarri, Indra, Kate, LLC, Magna Powertrain, Mann+Hummel Iberica, Microsoft, Muelles y Ballestas Hispano-Alemanas (MBHA), Siemens, SMP Automotive Technology Iberica, Sunsundegui, Telefónica, and Yazaki.

Automotive Meetings has already been successfully held in other markets such as Mexico, the USA, or Turkey, and now the organization chose Spain as the base for this event in Europe for several reasons:

  • Spain is the 2nd largest car manufacturer in Europe and the 9th worldwide.
  • The leading European manufacturer of industrial vehicles.
  • Major automotive brands establish themselves in Spain.
  • 17 manufacturing plants installed in Spanish territory.
  • 1,000 companies manufacturing components and equipment in the industry's supply chain.
  • 83% of vehicles manufactured in Spain are exported to over 100 countries.
