Doors & Closures in Car Body Engineering 2018

9th International Benchmarking Conference

Functionality at the highest level

Doors and Closures are among the most important discernable vehicle modules having to comply with a variety of engineering related requirements. They are crash and lightweight relevant, combine functions in a confined space and are largely responsible for the optical design.

Furthermore, upcoming electrification, connectivity and autonomous driving lead to additional challenges. How will these subjects influence the components? What new functions will future doors and closures provide? Which materials und technologies will be used?

The annual international Automotive Circle conference Doors and Closures in Car Body Engineering addresses current and future challenges engineers for hang-on parts have to face.
With 9 OEM presentations and reports on current visions and developments by suppliers, engineering service providers and relevant research institutions, the conference again gathers its international network of expert automobile engineers.

Be part of this event and actively participate in the conference with your questions, discussions, evaluations and benchmark activities.
