ACEA Annual Reception 2024

The automotive industry needs to boost cooperation with the tech and power sectors, as this is important for the industry’s green and digital transition. The ACEA Annual Reception held on 5 March 2024 at the Art & History Museum in Brussels was the perfect opportunity to discuss this cross-sectoral collaboration with leaders from these sectors.

With over 280 participants in attendance, including high-level representatives such as Luca de Meo, the President of the European Automobile Manufacturers’ Association (ACEA) and CEO of Renault Group, Peter Wennink, President and CEO of ASML, Alexander Vlascamp, CEO of MAN Truck & Bus, and Leonhard Birnbaum, CEO of E.ON and Eurelectric President, the event was a huge success.

The reception’s discussions focused on the importance of software-defined vehicles, powertrains to reduce emissions, and innovation needed to meet societal challenges. The event showed that the industry is future-driven and willing to keep a global position. EUCAR was well-represented through Stefan Deix, the EUCAR Director.
