Parallel conference

Already years ago the congress has developed into a platform also for related industries and topics. In 2019, for example, the focus was on electrification from an overall system viewpoint as well as powertrain solutions for commercial vehicles. The special plus for the participants of the congress and conferences: free access to all technical presentations offered on site. This enables a genuine cross-industry and cross-functional exchange among the technical experts.
