Next week’s Automotive Interiors Expo in Novi, Michigan will see over 110 exhibitors present their latest innovations and manufacturing solutions to help enhance and upgrade existing and future car programs.
Headline exhibitors include BASF, Dupont, Grupo Antolin, Juki America, MacDermid Enthone, Recticel and Velcro.
The show is all about interior quality, color, texture, touch, feel and innovation, and is a must-visit for Tier 1 suppliers, as well as for interior design teams from car manufacturers keen to keep up with all the latest trends and technologies. Over 2,000 attendees from across the globe are expected in total.
You’ll find a wide range of fabrics, acoustical materials, shape-forming materials and foams, fasteners and adhesive systems, lighting and more. Read all the latest show news, here.
Unlike many other automotive shows, the exhibition is closed to the public. This ensures a strong focus on business, with more time to interact with exhibits, ask detailed questions and discuss custom requirements.
There’s also a brand new The Future of Automotive Interiors conference, featuring speakers from organizations including Renault-Nissan, Continental and Tech Mahindra. The conference is solely focused on the trends and technologies shaping current and near-future automotive interiors.
Speakers include: Joseph Simpson, senior design strategist, Volvo Cars; Bruce Mehler, research scientist, MIT; Dr Vyacheslav Birman, an expert from Continental; Dr Wolfgang Stolzmann, lead engineer and consultant ADAS, CMORE Automotive GmbH; and Dr Rose Ryntz, president/Carbon Advisory Board member, Ryntz & Associates LLC.
In total, delegates will be able to hear from and network with over 40 speakers at the conference, which will include presentations and sessions dedicated to the study of future interior design, innovative seating, lighting, ergonomics, instrumentation, control systems, new HMI approaches, in-car entertainment and connectivity, onboard wellness and safety challenges, as well as the opportunities and challenges offered by increased vehicle autonomy and ever more sophisticated consumers.
