RETROSPECTIVE

APRA EUROPEAN SYMPOSIUM 2021 – HOTEL HILTON PRAGUE, CZECH REPUBLIC

We look back on another very successful edition of the APRA European Symposium. Despite pandemic-related circumstances, we were able to host it as a fully physical event. Our visitors from 13 different countries, all dedicated remanufacturing industry professionals, obviously were very relieved and happy to finally have an opportunity to meet and network.

Our programme included again, a broad range of experts’ speeches with a keynote given by Robert Kirr of Nexus Automotive International.

As in previous editions, two plant tours were scheduled for the Symposium. Due to Covid regulations, it was not possible to have physical tours. But our partners made a great job to make virtual, remote tours possible without compromising the amount and quality of information.

Thank you again to all our speakers, plant tour hosts and participants.

We look forward to the next edition of the APRA European Symposium.

 

We want to express our sincere thanks to all our speakers, panelists and participants. You made this event a success.

APRA EUROPEAN SYMPOSIUM 2020 – ONLINE EVENT

Our first online APRA European Symposium was a great success!

According to the positive feedback from our audience, the event fulfilled and even exceeded the expectations of our 75 participants.

This is not least because of the high quality of our expert speakers and their addressed topics of relevance to daily business.

A special highlight for our participants was the Keynote given by Arnd Franz, CEO of LKQ Europe. From his perspective as a global distributor, he  described the future of remanufacturing in the automotive aftermarket. LKQ is a real force in the aftermarket with more than 50.000 employees in 1.700 worldwide locations and revenues of 11,2 bn EUR.

The three-day-programme was filled with 26 speakers and panelists, all of them outstanding personalities and experts in the remanufacturing branch.

In a special feature, organized by the EU Horizon2020 funded research project consortium FiberEUse,  we covered and discussed issues arising at the end of life  of  fibers in automotive and non-automotive applications.

We want to express our sincere thanks to all our speakers, panelists and participants. You made this event a success.
