2020 : SURCAR ASIAN CONGRESS SURCAR
Our 1ST HYBRID Technical Congress in Shanghai on Oct 2020 was successful, more than 450 onsite and online participants attended the 2-day full conference.
The main feedback and requests we received during and after the Events concerned the need keeping the industry moving forward, even more so during these difficult moments and to strengthen and build up our SURCAR Community Globally – ensuring the Technical and Networking interest of our 3 Events in Cannes, Shanghai and Detroit and encouraging Global communication between Committee Members and Participants around the World.
As SURCAR, we are now looking actively how to better serve our community and migrate with allied Technologies and Industries in this ever-changing environment.
