Martin Herrenknecht, founder and chairman of the board of the specialist tunnelling machine company Herrenknecht, will be one of the main speakers at the plenary session of the CECE Congress on 25 October in Berlin.

Mr Herrenknecht will be sharing his thoughts on how a family-owned company from Europe like his can remain a global champion in changing markets.

The view of a global multinational on the challenge of Making It In Europe, the theme of the congress, will be presented by Sir Stephen Gomersall, CEO of the Hitachi Group in Europe.

Tim Leverton, head of research and development at Indian car manufacturer Tata Motors and previously group engineering director at JCB, will talk about the role of Europe as a leading innovator, and the challenge of the brain-drain.

The programme also includes sessions dealing with the developments in global markets and technical challenges. The long list of high-profile presenters at the CECE Congress also includes Peter Marsh, the Financial Times' manufacturing editor, and David Phillips of Off-Highway Research.

More information on the event, which takes place in Berlin from 24 to 26 October, can be found at www.cece-congress.eu.
