The WardsAuto Interiors Conference — the only event in North America solely dedicated to automotive interiors — is back, and details have just been released.
WardsAuto Interiors Conference
When: May 30, 2018
Where: COBO Center, Detroit, Michigan
Details: The WardsAuto Interiors Conference will cover a range of interesting subjects ranging from “Materials Innovations” to “Light-weighting Interiors” and even “Autonomous Interiors.”
Sessions will be led by top talent from vehicle manufacturers, suppliers and other industry professionals. The conference will also unveil the winners of Wards’ annual “Interiors Student Design Competition” and “Ward’s 10 Best Interiors” contest — which always draw crowds.
The keynote speakers have yet to be announced, but last year’s conference included Ralph Gilles, Head of Design at FCA-Global.
The WardsAuto Interior Conference is more about materials, design and technology than it is about craftsmanship and tools. It provides a great opportunity to network, keep up with industry trends and stay ahead of the design curve. However, it’s not the type of event where you’ll meet a lot of industry suppliers or learn about new products (The 2018 SEMA Show is better for that).
Interested professionals should register before March 16 to save $100. For more details, including a full schedule of events, check out the WardsAuto Interiors Conference website.
