The leading automotive marketing summit hits Melbourne

The Australian Grand Prix might have been run and won, but the action won’t be finished. Two days after Daniel Ricciardo debuts for Renault, the Mumbrella Automotive Marketing Summit makes its first start in Melbourne, packed with the biggest names in automotive marketing discussing the most relevant industry challenges. From the new consumer habits to the future of the dealer, the relevance of motorsports for marketers to the winning ways to engage and plenty more, the conference will offer a completely fresh take on automotive marketing. The Sydney event in August 2018 attracted over 450 delegates – so if you’re based in Melbourne or there for the Australian Grand Prix, make sure you don’t miss the Mumbrella Automotive Marketing Summit.

From Bathurst Wins to Business Deals: The TEKNO Group Story

From Bathurst Wins to Business Deals: The TEKNO Group Story

TEKNO Autosports is known as one of the smaller teams that packs a big punch in the Virgin Australia Supercar Series. Established in 2011 by Jonathan Webb, it is the benchmark single car team in the championship.

Under Webb, the team has scored eight poles and 11 wins in its short history, including the fabled Bathurst 1000 in 2016, which Webb himself won as co-driver with Will Davison. It’s also run international drivers the likes of current IndyCar winner and ex-F1 driver Sebastien Bourdias as well as Indy 500 winner Gil de Ferran.

TEKNO’s motoring and motorsports pedigree goes way beyond Supercars, though. It actively participates in GT racing and has won the Bathurst 12 hour while TEKNO Performance is a dedicated road car engineering division specialising in the performance enhancement of premium late-model vehicles.

At the Mumbrella Automotive Marketing Summit – Melbourne, Webb will take the stage in a special fireside chat to talk about the TEKNO brand, running and marketing both a competitive racing team as well as a consumer business, and how the challenges are shaping up for the year ahead.

Jonathon Webb

Managing Director & Driver, TEKNO
