VIII Annual Press Conference “REVIEW 2014”


On 15 January 2015, the Automobile Manufacturers’ Committee of the Association of European Businesses held its VIII Annual Press Conference «REVIEW 2014».

The event took place at the Radisson Royal (Ukraine) Hotel in Moscow.

Main speakers at the Conference were Dr. Frank Schauff, AEB CEO and Joerg Schreiber, AEB AMC Chairman (Mazda Motor Rus LLC). At the Press Conference, the sales results of the Russian automotive market in 2014 and prospects for 2015 were presented. Sales of new passenger cars and LCVs in Russia in December 2014 increased by 2.4% as compared with the results of December 2013. Annual sales of new passenger cars and LCVs in Russia in December decreased by 10.3% as compared with the year 2013. 

The AMC Chairman, Joerg Schreiber announced the AMC forecast for 2015:
“2014 ended with a strong finish, but with a cumulative volume loss of 10% remains a disappointing year for the Russian car market. In the face of the looming recession, expectations for 2015 are even lower: Our forecast for the total market of PC and LCV next year is 1.89 million units, equivalent to a 24% contraction of the market on a year-on-year basis.” 

At the Press Conference the main issues on the AMC Agenda were featured. CEOs and representatives of major automotive companies participated at the Press Conference. The representatives of leading Media were present and showed huge interest in the event. A series of individual interviews with the speakers and individual brands’ representatives were organized after the event.

AEB would like to express gratitude to the sponsors of the Annual AMC Press Conference for their invaluable support for organizing the event: Total Vostok (platinum sponsor); Cesar Sattelite, Continental and Raiffeisen-Leasing (silver sponsors).
