PIAE 2020: Get involved yourself

Visit the next VDI PIAE congress and discover our innovative, interactive event. In 2020 we will again offer you several short workshops, discussion sessions and world cafés all about exciting topics in the field of plastics. These diverse formats will start the conversation between you and other experts and give you valuable insights into a variety of themes.

How can I imagine these formats?


In around 60 minutes, you meet with your interest group and consider a specific, technical topic. Cooperation, interaction and knowledge transfer are key. Then at the end you can take the opportunity to further intensify your discussion with other participants.

Discussion sessions

Opinions differ. But that’s what makes hearing them interesting. In our new, public discussion session bring experts together to discuss polarizing topics. Use the opportunity to ask questions through our interactive sli.do discussion tool.

World Cafés

You’d rather discuss in a smaller group? That’s certainly possible in our  World Café format. Changing themes, changing participants and the chance to express your own opinion. This is another ideal place to get the conversation started and to meet experts in a flash.

Jobwall and Job-Hour

Our job wall is addressed to young professionals, students, graduates but also to company representatives. Visit our interactive job wall with interesting job vacancies in the automotive plastics industry. Besides you will get the chance to listen to interesting impulse presentations about your potential career opportunities during our daily job-hour. For company representatives our job wall also offers great benefits! Meet young talents and listen to their short presentations about their current research projects! Our job wall is the best chance to get in touch with potential company newcomers!
