ICDP Spring Meeting 2019 Berlin

Disruptive change: real or imagined?

Please download a copy of the event brochure - link further down on the right - this will give you a detailed breakdown of the agenda.

+ Presentation, debate, and case studies will bring to life some of the key elements of the future distribution environment
+ Guest speakers will challenge our thinking, and share their visions for the future
+ The opportunity to review the range of topics from ICDP’s current research year

ICDP’s Spring Meeting brings together the full range of topics we have been covering during the current programme year, alongside guest speakers, ample networking opportunities during the day and at dinner, and case studies of solutions we believe are relevant to the future of distribution. It is the highlight of our year, and offers insights and value to all players. We strongly encourage broad participation from programme members to get the best value from the meeting, and the connections we will make between the different topics.

Our 2018-2019 programme has focused on the theme of ‘disruptive change: real or imagined?’ We have been looking back at some of the predictions made over the past few years by the industry and its commentators about the ongoing transformation of the traditional car ownership model, of the roles of the different players involved, and of the supporting retail and aftersales channels; can we conclude that the sector has indeed been irrevocably ‘disrupted’? And we have been combining this with our regular, forward-looking research to build our updated, uniquely grounded vision of the industry’s future, and of what it should do to prepare for the challenges ahead. The Spring Meeting will summarise our findings from throughout the year, but will also update them with the latest developments, and will address and debate challenges and questions that have been raised with us by members and others.

We are structuring the two days to provide multiple opportunities for discussion and debate around the issues raised, with scheduled break-outs, plus the opportunity to hear from, and question, our guest speakers who are challenging the sector’s status quo.

We are pleased to be returning to the wonderful city of Berlin, and to the Radisson Blu Hotel in Karl-Liebknecht-Strasse. The hotel is situated between Alexanderplatz and Museum Island, with many of the sights of the historic city within easy walking distance. We look forward to seeing you in Berlin in March!
