The automotive industry is investing heavily on manufacturing cleaner vehicles, which entails lighter cars, but without compromising on safety. Vehicle manufacturers are responding to the challenge by following a multimaterial strategy.

The conference aims to depict this strategy by focusing on state-of-the-art multimaterial concepts, car body lightweight design, new steels, aluminium alloys and composites in automotive structures and joining technologies.

To provide a hands-on experience of the discussed topics, full BIW and chassis components of the JAGUAR F-Pace and AUDI Q5 will be on display at the event premises, as a reflection of the material approach applied in the D-SUV segment, one of the most sought-after segments on the market today.
