This industry track will provide unique insights into not only the new types of business models but opportunities and implications for new and existing players in the electric vehicle space. Experts from PSA Peugeot Citroën Modec Ltd., Modec Ltd., SMMT Limited, and Liberty Electric Cars will lead the discussion.

The focus of the Chemicals, Materials, and Food think thank will be on using innovation as a means of tackling industry challenges. In the first presentation of this interactive session, attendees will have the opportunity to learn about and discuss the types of innovation required by chemicals and materials companies to meet the challenges faced in the key downstream industries, such as Automotive, Construction and Personal Care. Focus will be on innovation being driven by global megatrends including: globalisation, the low carbon economy, heath & wellbeing and enhanced functionality. This is a unique platform designed to enable leaders to benchmark, validate strategy, share best practices and learn from each other's pitfalls and successes. The track will include speakers and panellists from Huntsman, DuPont, and DSM.

Recognising sustainability as a critical global issue, the Energy & Environment industry track will address the issue of increasing power and water consumption.

The track will present a 360 degree perspective of the opportunities and challenges for sustainable and smart solutions in the global energy and water marketplace.

In the realm of Healthcare, the focus will be on how attitudes, systems, and policies will change healthcare over the next decade. The trend towards consumer-driven healthcare is emerging and is paralleled by rapid technological changes. The Healthcare & Life Sciences industry track will discuss ambitious ideas about developments in the field, provide glimpses into the future, and project a fascinating new world of possibilities. The think tank will be led by experts from Sorrento Therapeutics, Inc. and Frost & Sullivan.

The Information & Communications Technologies track, led by leaders from IFS, Polycom Inc., and Verizon Business, will look into the Cloud Computing concept.
