PIAE – International professional congress for plastics in cars

The marketplace of your industry becomes digital!

The world’s largest congress for plastics experts in the automotive industry has been looking into current plastics applications and their uses in exteriors, interiors, engines, materials and technologies for over 40 years. The Covid-19 developments does not change the importance of our congress. The longstanding history is a guarantee to get in touch with international experts, even in pandemic times.

We will certainly stick to our planned lecture programme. Our lectures will be offered in the newly designed virtual rooms and will be available during the whole time of the event and the following two months. We want to make sure that you don’t have to sit in front of your computer for hours and that you can gain some flexibility! Finally, you get the chance to listen to all the presentations and not to miss out on some of them due to programme overlaps.
