Dear Corporate Executives:

China’s auto market is at a turning point after 15 years of rocket-speed growth that has virtually changed the country of bicycles into a country of cars.


Until most recently, OEMs, suppliers, dealers, officials and analysts have been bullish about the future of the world’s largest market, predicting that annual sales would reach 30, 40 and even 50 million. But nobody had anticipated a negative growth in sales in the first six months of 2015. Harsh market realities are forcing executives to re-evaluate China’s future potential and make strategic adjustments in order to confront the upcoming challenges.


To help executives feel the pulse of China’s changing market on a regular basis, CBU/CAR will launch a Monthly Automotive Salon (MAS) starting October 2015. MAS will be held alternatively in Beijing/Shanghai on the evening of the 2rd Wednesday each month (3rd in case of national holiday).


MISSION: To help industry executives feel the pulse of China's changing automobile market through monthly professional discussions on most important current issues.

Held alternatively in Beijing and Shanghai on the evening of the 2nd Wednesday of each month (3rd in case of national holiday).
Intermittently held in Guangzhou, Chongqing and Wuhan.

Rewarding professional gathering for in-depth discussions of the changing China market. Participants will be able to better understand and assess factors that may affect the market and their business operations, which includes but not limited to: regulatory environment, R&D, manufacturing, supply chain management, sales and marketing, dealer and distribution, financing and leasing, used vehicles, NEVs, connected vehicles, Internet cars, etc.

FORMAT: Information-packed two-hour informal seminar (18:30-20:30), preceded by a happy hour (17:30-18:30) of horderves. The seminar has a key-note presentation, a CBU Analytics end-user sales briefing and a panel discussion.
