Annual Automotive Plastics Summit

The automotive industry is currently undergoing massive innovations. These innovations have the potential to alter automotive vehicle designs and supporting infrastructures around the globe by 2025. Several automakers are turning to plastics due to its advantages over metal; such as reduction of the weight of automobiles, fuel efficiency, improved safety, environmental friendliness and sustainability attributes. These revolutionary changes suggest a critical need to rethink vehicle architecture and materials requirements. Versatile, durable, and lightweight plastics, plastic composites and plastic-metal hybrid materials that increase the efficiency, crashworthiness, and functionality of today’s vehicles hold immense potential to radically enable and optimize advanced vehicle technologies for the future.

This premier B2B event will bring together experts, OEMs, suppliers, and academia to discuss, hear and learn about their experiences and challenges with automotive plastics design, migration and optimization, to network and enjoy excellent mix of case studies, interactive panel discussions, speed networking and workshops.
