The international VDI Congress "Drivetrain for Vehicles" is now called Dritev

The world of transmissions has changed substantially in the last 15 years: the drivetrain is taking center stage as a result of intensifying discussion about CO2 and the transformation of the transmission into the drivetrain manager as a result of increasing electrification. The challenge today is seeing the transmission as a part of the entire drivetrain and using this systemic view in its design and development. We’re staying abreast of these changes. And we’re addressing what moves today’s transmission developers.

The VDI congress "Dritev - Drivetrain for Vehicles" moved to Bonn

The international VDI congress “Dritev - Drivetrain for Vehicles“ is moved house.  
From 2017 the international drivetrain congress “Dritev - Drivetrain for Vehicles“ will be held in the heart of the former government district of the former federal capital Bonn, opposite the German headquarters of the United Nations. 

The conference building - opened in 2015 -  impresses with its extraordinary design and high-tech facilities. Due to its central location, it can easily be reached by car, rail and air.
Its significance for the German history, combined with sophistication and the cosy feeling which is typical for the Rhine area, add that special touch to any event held in the city of Bonn.  Let yourself be inspired by the city’s unique atmosphere.
