We are pleased to invite you to the “3rd Annual Automotive Exhaust Systems Summit” scheduled on 26th and 27th of October, 2017 in Munich, Germany.

 

Keeping your exhaust system in good working condition is vital for fuel mileage, the environment, and your safety. During this Summit, we will discuss how the exhaust system works, how it usually fails, and the best way to repair it. A car’s exhaust system carries away the gases created when the fuel and air are burned in the combustion chamber. These gases are harmful to humans and our environment. Frequent checks of your exhaust system are a must to provide you and your family safety.

An exhaust system comprises of various devices or parts of an automotive engine, which are used for discharging burned gases or steam. Exhaust systems consist of tubing, which are used for emitting out waste gases with the help of a controlled combustion taking place inside an automobile engine. All the burnt gases are exhaled from the engine using one or more exhaust pipes. These gases are expelled out through several devices like cylinder head, exhaust manifold, turbocharger, catalytic converter, muffler and silencer.

This Summit will be focusing on the best practices and latest innovative technologies for exhaust systems, sensors and control concepts, and exhaust gas after-treatment.

This event will bring together experts, technical directors, OEM, consultants and academia to discuss, hear and learn about their experiences with Automotive Exhaust Systems and performance, to network and enjoy excellent mix of case studies, interactive panel discussions, 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 Summit in Munich this October!
