"Plastics in Automotive Engineering"
VDI Conference Gets Renamed
The VDI Conference “Kunststoffe im Automobilbau” is now “PIAE – Plastics in Automotive Engineering”. Larger, more international and with its new name, the conference is once again the meeting place for international plastics and automotive experts. It takes place from 14th to 15th March in Mannheim, Germany.
The new title opens the doors to participants from all over the world. In addition, the event has been given a new focus: in the future, it will train a spotlight on the effects of automotive megatrends on the industry.
PIAE’s focus this year is on the challenges and opportunities of the transformation in the automotive industry. For example, the new requirements for functional plastics for electrified cars will be addressed. In the future, for example, jointless design components and glossy, smart surfaces with lighting functions will be increasingly used. In the new World-Café, participants can gather in small groups to discuss possible strategies and insights into issues related to autonomous driving, value change and shared mobility.
