At a time when the ASEAN nations are struggling to implement a trade treaty, it's difficult to find a market with as much potential - and uncertainty - as Southeast Asia. ASEAN is the Association of Southeast Asian Nations. Executives doing business in the region will have a chance to hear the market strategies of the auto industry's top experts at the Asia-Pacific Congress, an event sponsored by Automotive News International.
The conference will be at the Erawan Grand Hyatt Hotel in Bangkok on March 28 and 29.
Rudy Schlais, president of GM Asia, will deliver the keynote speech. Other top speakers include Koji Hasegawa, managing director of Toyota Motor Corp.; Stefan Jacoby, president of Volkswagen Asia-Pacific; Rolf Eckrodt, COO of Mitsubishi Motor Corp.; Vaughn Koshkarian, president of Ford Asia-Pacific; and Frank Messer, chief executive of DaimlerChrysler Southeast Asia.
The registration fee is $975, which covers all conference sessions plus lunch, dinner and a nightcap reception on March 28. The fee also includes a VIP press pass to the Bangkok International Motor Show on March 30. Group discounts are available.
