CALL FOR PAPERS REMINDER
We are pleased to announce the date and venue of the first of a new conference series:
Textile Opportunities in a Changing Automotive Industry
Jaguar Experience Centre, Birmingham, UK - 5-6 February 2020
The automotive industry is facing the most disruptive transformation in its history. The advent of electric vehicles, autonomous driving, restrictions on car use in urban areas, lightweighting, environmental regulations, end-of-life recycling, safety and in-vehicle health monitoring, and other changes will impact directly on the manufacture, use and development of textiles and nonwovens in this sector.
Suppliers of woven and knitted fabrics, smart textiles, nonwovens and composites will all need to address these trends and satisfy radically new demands, for interior and exterior applications on vehicles.
Textile Opportunities in a Changing Automotive Industry - the 1st international conference will address these issues, bringing together the key players in the industry, from OEMs and Tier 1 and 2 suppliers to raw material manufacturers, as well as builders of textile manufacturing equipment.
Presentations will examine in detail how these trends are already reshaping the automotive industry, and its supply chain, and will continue to do so in the next decade and beyond.
Key impacts of change
Speakers at the recent textiles coating and laminating TCL conference in Berlin outlined likely areas of impact that change would have on automotive textiles. Watch their presentations on the conference website to gain a better understanding of the issues and topics that this conference will address.
The conference will be held at the Jaguar Experience Centre near Birmingham, UK, a hub of the global automotive industry and the centre of significant commercial developments in many of these fields.
