Powertrain systems in mobile machinery - conference

A large range of professionals from Germany and abroad with a background in transmission development and gear design in mobile machinery will be meeting again on 24 and 25 June 2020. In the past, this event has attracted considerable attention and interest and set the stage for some fascinating debate. Within the framework of the Transmission Congress (Dritev), the philosophy of networking and exchanging views across industry sectors at the World Conference Center (WCCB) in Bonn fosters a stimulating discussion amongst attendees and speakers, which is highly appreciated on both sides.

Topics at the International Expert Meeting 

The following topics will be discussed at the VDI Congress “Powertrain systems in mobile machinery “

  • Drive diversification and modularisation of propulsion systems
  • Drive and transmission concepts
  • Alternative drive systems
  • Digitalization and impact on the propulsion system

Experts from inside and outside Germany at the “Transmission Market Place“ in Bonn

Every other year experts from the off-highway segment experience the outstanding network of the International Transmission Congress – the Dritev, since 2018 taking place in Bonn - as highly beneficial. The exceptional venue provides the ideal backdrop for participants to share their views across industry borders and the large-scale trade show stimulates debate. Don’t miss this unique opportunity! Attendees are able to switch between lectures at the congress: Passenger Vehicle Programme (Dritev) and the International VDI Congress „EDrive“: Powertrain development in light of an all-embracing approach“.

The VDI conference “ Powertrain systems in mobile machinery “ is a unique forum with a strong technological focus which is embedded in the get-together of leading transmission experts.
