Renault Chief Operating Officer Carlos Tavares will speak at the ANE Congress.
Renault's global expansion plans will come under the spotlight when the automaker's Chief Operating Officer Carlos Tavares speaks at the Automotive News Europe Congress next month.

Among other scheduled speakers are PSA chief Philippe Varin, GM Europe CEO Karl-Friedrich Stracke, Porsche boss Matthias Mueller and Volvo Cars CEO Stefan Jacoby.
Ferrari Chairman Luca Cordero di Montezemolo will be the keynote dinner speaker.
