FIA eConference 2020

"Dear friends,

Welcome to the 2020 FIA eConference website.

The unprecedented crisis that has been shaking the world for months now has required us to innovate how we get together. Given that virtual meetings have become part of the new normal, our global event will adapt to the current circumstances and will be held by means of an online Conference.

I am looking forward to welcoming you to the FIA joint Sport and Mobility eConference, which will take place from 15 to 18 June. Structured around the theme ‘Shaping the Future Together’, it will bring together the FIA family, the Member Clubs’ Presidents, senior executives representing 243 affiliated organisations of the FIA from 146 countries, as well as global leaders and experts who will be addressing the post Covid-19 Motorsport and Mobility’s scenarios.

It will open with a common Sport & Mobility session examining how Covid-19 is impacting our two pillars, and what the world may look like after the pandemic. It will be followed by a high-level discussion with leaders analysing how different organisations across the sport and mobility spheres can tackle and turn the current challenges into opportunities for more sustainable operations and proactive cooperation.

The Sport sessions will first explore the possibilities ASNs will have to restart their activities and return to racing in the best conditions, will then discuss the relevance of Motor Sport, its significant contribution to society and the importance of racing with a purpose. After the fruitful FIA Stronger Together Webinar, a dedicated session will focus on Digital Motor Sport, how to keep the momentum and fully integrate this new discipline in the Motor Sport ladder.

Following the positive reaction to the FIA Stay Tuned initiative, Mobility sessions will address how the FIA network is responding to help member Clubs to build increased business agility in the face of major disruption. In particular, we will examine the impact on tourism activities and scenarios for future demand. In addition, we will consider emerging strategies for advocacy in support of safe and sustainable mobility in a world where personal transport solutions are more relevant than ever.

On this occasion, studios will be organised at the FIA office in both Paris and Geneva as well as at the F1 and FE’s headquarters in London.

I hope to see you all online for this innovative event.

With my most heartfelt wishes for your continued safety and health,"

Jean Todt, 

FIA President
