Niche Vehicle latest key industry event with Silverstone Park

18 November 2019

Automotive industry body the Niche Vehicle Network will return to Silverstone for a fifth consecutive year with its popular Members’ Forum on 25 November.

The NVN’s annual event, held inside Silverstone University Technology College’s auditorium, is supported by Silverstone Park.

Its lively format offers numerous smaller tech enterprises with growth ambitions three-minute slots at a time to promote their business offering to a captive audience.

In addition there will be ‘break out’ networking sessions while the Forum will also celebrate the achievements of NVN’s innovative member businesses across the automotive technology spectrum.

One example in 2019 has been Silverstone Park occupier Performance Projects and the futuristic electric, autonomous tractor it has designed and built in collaboration with Dynium Robot.

The tractor, on display at the recent Advanced Engineering Show, is thought to be the first of its kind…

NVN’s Network Director Dr Viv Stephens commented: “Our Members’ Forum later this month will again see 130 delegates coming to Silverstone Park for some serious business networking.

“This is our fifth year at Silverstone UTC and that’s because it’s a great location and our members love coming here.

“With the Innovation Centre and several of our member companies – including Performance Projects and Delta Motorsport – based at Silverstone Park, it is a natural place for technology companies to meet up and do business.”

The NVN Members’ Forum (CLICK HERE to book places) is the second high profile automotive industry event to take place in partnership with Silverstone Park inside a month.

Last week (Fri 15 Nov) the Coventry University’s Centre for Business in Society (CBiS) held an industry workshop/study into electric vehicle technologies at the Park’s Innovation Centre.

The event drew key figures from Aston Martin, Millbrook Training Ground and FIA Formula E as panellists.
