‘The Future of the Aftermarket’ was the central topic of a round table discussion hosted by global aftermarket alliance NEXUS Automotive International as part of its latest N! Connecting Day held in Dubai.
The event (Wednesday, 10th May) took place at the city’s Waldorf Hotel on the world-famous Palm Jumeirah. Following an introductory plenary session, some 24 N! members and around 20 N! global suppliers met for a series of organised business speed-dating sessions.
In between, NEXUS Executive Director Philippe Guyot led the round table debate with four N! suppliers, with NEXUS CFO Thierry Mugnier acting as moderator. Also present were N! Business Development Directors Martin Hendriksen, responsible for English speaking sub-Saharan countries, Australia and New Zealand, and Saman Rashidi, responsible for the Middle East.
The Dubai event followed N! Connecting Days in Moscow and Sao Paulo and took place before the next N! Connecting Day in North America. NEXUS CEO Gael Escribe said: “We were delighted to bring our successful N! Connecting Days forum to the United Arab Emirates. It provided an excellent platform for the progressive N! community to meet and create new business opportunities.”
