ExA NEXT 19 provided a unique platform to engage with entrepreneurs, directors and leaders who are pushing industry forward. 

The digitization of the transportation of people and goods will have a net impact of US-$5 Trillion globally within the next 10 years says Cisco. In addition Goldman Sachs quantifies the global economic benefits from autonomous driving at US-$3.5 Trillion.

As both stats see Asia Pacific and Europe in the forefront, ExA-SUMMIT builds a bridge between them.

In order to build a prosperous ecosystem for the Internet of Things, ExA NEXT 2019 brings together 150 European, Asian and American representatives to discuss and identify common interests, and catalyze potential synergies.

ExA NEXT 2019 is an exclusive network of leaders, part of a long-term, far-reaching initiative to foster cross-continental cooperation, coordinated by the Wangdao Alliance since 2015.
