Guten tag! The Automotive Interiors Expo in Stuttgart, Germany, is only two months away.
The event brings together automakers, interior manufacturers, styling houses, suppliers and trimmers to discuss the latest industry trends. There will be more than 180 exhibitors in attendance.
The event’s website explains:
Automotive Interiors Expo exhibitors represent the A-Z of car interiors, with our exhibitors’ products being found in vehicles from just about every car manufacturer you can name, from Ferrari, Maserati, McLaren and Porsche through to GM, Volkswagen, Jaguar, BMW, Kia Toyota and Chevy, to name just a few!
The show is about quality, colour, texture, touch, feel and innovation. … You’ll find a wide range of fabrics, acoustical materials, shape-forming materials and foams, fasteners and adhesive systems, lighting and more! […]
This is a solutions show with a tremendous number of innovative products to see!
The event, scheduled for May 21 – 23, will include a number of discussion panels. For example, “Seating Design, Ergonomics and Integrated Technology for Smart Interiors” and “New Materials and Composites – Light-weighting Technology and Shedding Interior Flab.”
Like the upcoming WardsAuto Interior Conference, this expo is more about materials, design and technology than it is about craftsmanship and tools. It provides a great opportunity to 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 car builders and craftsmen. (The SEMA Show is better for that).
Best of all, the show is in Germany — so you can experience a foreign country and write off the trip as a business expense. Win-win!
