In 2020, 160 leaders and influencers watched the first simulcast live with 66 people enjoying it on catchup. Of this pioneering group, two thirds rated their experience as excellent.

This year, the IBIS team has enlisted the expert help of regional industry specialists known as IBIS Ambassadors to develop even more compelling and must-watch presentations and panel sessions. In turn, the IBIS Ambassadors have recruited the best subject area gurus as presenters.

The principal aim of IBISConnect Africa is to equip participants with the insight and knowhow to get ready for growth over the next 24 months, safe in the knowledge that the global repair and maintenance market is expected to grow from U$1,172.05bn (R16 388.81bn) in 2020 to US$1,261.56bn (R17 977,48bn) in 2021 (source: Research and Markets).

On the agenda will be topics such as the state of the African market in 2021 and the roadmap to 2023, achieving business growth with education and entrepreneurialism, ADAS and vehicle technology and reaction from all stakeholders to a new “right to repair” initiative.

Brand new to IBISConnect Africa 2021 are enhanced executive networking features including “Profiles and Chat” – a facility whereby delegates create a personal profile to allow others to connect with them using text as well as video chat – and “Random Networking”.
