The Global Lightweight Vehicle Manufacturing Congress 2014 will, for the first time...

...provided technical solutions for identifying the most cost-feasible joining techniques, global infrastructure planning strategies and production methods to drive the widespread integration of advanced lightweight materials within OEMs.

Taking a perspective across both body structures and vehicle systems, this was a key opportunity to gain insights into Vehicle OEMs, Suppliers & R&D Institutions' approaches for establishing a cost-competitive light-weighting solution for the mass market.

What Made This Congress Unique?
  • TECHNOLOGY SELECTION & IMPLEMENTATION: This was the first automotive conference to focus on the business case for which lightweight materials joining technologies are right for implementation and how to apply them to enable high volume production both regionally and globally
  • LARGE SCALE FOCUS: This brand new GALM sister event fully encompassed the manufacturing considerations to account for when moving into large scale lightweight manufacturing to provide delegates with intelligence on how to more effectively roll out their own light weighting manufacturing strategies. This isn't just about testing and piloting - it's about tried and tested, commercial global scale production
  • MANUFACTURING JOB TITLE SPECIFIC: The big difference between this event and the events American Business Conferences has done in the past is that this was focused 100% on manufacturing techniques, the hottest topic in the lighweighting field. While the Global Automotive Lightweight Materials Conference (Detroit, August) is focused on material selection, product design, supply chain and manufacturing, the Global Lightweight Vehicle Manufacturing Congress 2014 will focus specifically on the overall manufacturing considerations for lightweighting implementation
  • UNPRECEDENTEDLY DETAILED AGENDA ON MANUFACTURING: The agenda provided highly detailed analysis of welding, riveting and bonding best practice case studies across each lightweight material and mixed material combinations
  • REPAIRS & JOINT TESTING: The agenda addressed one of the most important topics in manufacturing - the standardization of joint testing and repairs for manufacturing - to identify optimal joint, crack and dent repair techniques and improve process efficiencies
  • STRATEGIC & TECHNICAL FOCUS: The content in other joining conferences is very technical in regards to joining while we focussed on technical joining but also on the strategic implementation of lightweighting in plants. Other conferences show how to implement - we show how to implement technologies but also explained the business case for why each technology was chosen so delegates attain insight into the economics as well as the application of each joining technology. This was a unique agenda design that has never before been done
  • SENIOR & TECHNICAL APPEAL: We therefore attracted senior manufacturing personnel (Directors, VPs, Head Of) at our conference as well as more technical people, whereas some other joining conferences focus purely on junior technical personnel
