Nick Fry, Chief Executive Officer, Honda Racing F1 Team: “I’m delighted to be able to return to speak at the Forum. The first event was a great start and this year is set to be even better. With the manufacturer teams having committed their future to Formula One I’ve no doubt that the Forum will become a long-term and important fixture in the sport.”
Scott Garrett, WilliamsF1 marketing director: “I’ve been involved in Formula One for just a short time but I’m amazed that this is only the second event for the Motor Sport Business Forum. Formula One is a melting pot for some of the biggest brands in the world and that facet alone demands an event like this. I think the Forum is an essential string to Formula One’s commercial bow.”
David Richards, Prodrive chief executive: “I am delighted to be involved with this exciting event. The Forum is the perfect place to discuss the FIAAMD Formula One Survey as it represents the largest gathering of F1’s major decision makers away from the frantic Grand Prix weekend. It will offer a unique and important opportunity for the F1 team principals to give their opinions on the Survey’s findings.”
Matt Bishop, conference chairman: "I'm delighted to be taking on the chairmanship of the 2006 Motor Sport Business Forum. Last year's inaugural event was a great start, and I'm sure that the excellent speakers we've lined up will make this year even better. Formula One faces a host of tricky challenges these days – economically, commercially and politically – so an annual Motor Sport Business Forum is more relevant, and more important, than ever before."
Simon Berger, event director: “It was always important that we take the Forum to the next level this year and I think we will achieve that. I am delighted with the huge interest we’ve received from delegates and exhibitors. I’m also extremely pleased with the high quality of the conference programme, which now reads like a who’s who of the major players in motor sport. It proves that the Forum has become the must-attend event for the motor sport industry.”
Ulrich Lacher, IFM International managing director: “The Motor Sport Business Forum offers impressive opportunities for discussion and networking. This is the place where the decision-makers of the motor sport industry will be.”
