Non-large scale B2B event for decision makers to maximize networking and business opportunities

“3rd Annual Automotive Glazing Summit” scheduled for May 18th and 19th 2017, in Berlin, Germany.

 

Automotive glazing materials affect the total automotive system. This summit presents an overview of different automotive glazing materials and covers a wide range of topics including evolution, regulations, characteristics, manufacturing, testing, and safety. The chemical, physical, and design issues related to various glazing materials (annealed, laminated, tempered, glass-plastic, and plastic) are covered in depth.

This innovative B2B event will enable the participants to learn about the latest trends and developments in automotive glazing and automotive design. The Summit will be focusing on the current solutions and latest innovative technologies in windshields, HUDs, roof systems, design with auto glass and other modules where glass can be implemented.

This event will bring together experts, technical directors, OEMs, representatives and consultants, to discuss, hear, and learn about their experiences in automotive glazing and auto design; to network and enjoy an excellent mix of case studies; interactive panel discussions; and speed networking and workshops. It is an honour and privilege to invite you to participate in this Summit.

We look forward to welcoming you at the Berlin Summit in May!
