Why attend?

As technologies such as autonomous driving are disrupting the automotive industry, seating will become one of the most strategic systems inside the vehicle.

Today our seats need to keep us comfortable and safe, but tomorrow will be expecting them to do a lot more. This compact one day technical conference sets out to position the technological and production challenges in the new frontier of smart, innovative automotive seating; but drills into the real ‘current’ ‘today’ challenges of mass vs comfort vs durability.

Whist there are huge advancements in innovation, exiting materials, structures, fabrics and smart tech currently available, the real common denominator in the current market is innovating – while reducing costs, weight and meeting regulations and testing.

Join us for this one day interactive, knowledge sharing workshop and learn how future technologies and materials can fit todays 'prescriptions'!
