Pontus Fontaeus experience in managing the latest Land Rover concept car and how is his own design process, Peter Stevens talking about how car design evolved since early century to today and what type of thinking this analysis could provoke, Luciano Bove (me) presenting our new R&D design team at Renault and how we did our latest concept the Renault Next Two self-driving car, great presentation by Nyko about Local Motors online activity and design contest mostly its evolution in USA.

In the afternoon we also had an interesting Design Talk on stage speaking about how we perceive elegance and quality in Design according to its weight or lightness.
