CBU’s annual conference started in October 1996 in Detroit. Since then our international event has evolved into a unique annual gathering alternatively in Beijing and Shanghai of multinational and Chinese auto executives. It is both a value-added event for in-depth discussions on the Chinese auto market and a high-level and rewarding networking opportunity for sponsors, speakers and attendees from around the world.
CBU/CAR has been covering China's auto market for 20 years since 1995 with weekly, bi-weekly and monthly e-newsletters and a monthly magazine, China Automotive Review. CBU/CAR publications have been recognized by industry professionals as the source that "tells about the wheels behind the wheels" of the expanding China market.
Make sure to join us in April in Shanghai to celebrate our 20th annual international gathering!
