LONDON, May 7, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Members of a global community of today's best thinkers, visionaries and thought leaders will gather 17 - 19 May, 2010 at the Emirates Stadium in London for Frost Sullivan's annual flagship client event, GIL 2010: Europe - The Global Community of Growth, Innovation and Leadership. Together, the members of this community will engage, inspire and provoke candid discussions as they explore leveraging innovation as a resource to shape a better future for their companies. PSA Peugeot Citroen, Europe's second largest automaker and one such member company and forward thinking business, will be offering GIL 2010: Europe participants a preview of their Citroen C-Zero electric passenger car. The C-Zero, along with the Peugeot iOn, will be the first mass-produced electric vehicles available in Europe when launched later this year.


A key component of GIL 2010: Europe is the diverse industry tracks that present a truly global, visionary perspective covering a range of markets and industries while highlighting the critical developments therein. Electric vehicles, for example, are set to revolutionise the automotive world. Everything from vehicle design, sourcing of components, packaging and production of vehicles, right through to channels to market and the fuelling of vehicles will be transformed. The advent of electric vehicles is ushering in an age of opportunity for innovative new players and all those savvy enough to embrace change. Exciting new opportunities now exist for products and capabilities from other industries. By examining the opportunities, implications and new business models arising in the EV space, the automotive transportation visionary think tank at GIL 2010: Europe will be of interest even to companies outside the automotive sector, says Frost Sullivan Partner, Sarwant Singh.

This year's congress will also feature seven other industry think tanks focusing on Frost Sullivan's areas of industry specialisation - Aerospace Defence; Chemicals, Materials Food; Energy Environment; Building Technologies Security; Healthcare Life Sciences; Information Communication Technologies; and Industrial Automation. Each think tank will afford participants the opportunity to brainstorm on how to shape a better future for their companies by driving innovation while developing and strengthening their company's growth strategies.
