Detroit, MI

The automotive industry is in the midst of seismic change as major auto markets — including the world’s largest auto market, China — require more electric and alternative powertrain vehicles in the marketplace. The growth of car sharing services is demanding new, customizable interiors, the move toward partial autonomous vehicles requires more integration of cameras and sensors in exterior parts and all the while carbon fiber, 3D printing and light weighting demands are shaping the industry’s future direction. And then there’s the issue of finding the workers who will make these complex cars.

Plastics News’ fourth annual Plastics in Automotive conference, to be held Jan. 15-16, 2018, at the Marriott Renaissance Center Detroit, will look at how this reimagined automotive market will affect the plastics industry and its longer-term navigation. The conference will provide attendees a roadmap to 2040 and how the plastics industry will help drive new automotive experiences.

Register now to attend the plastics industry’s largest global event dedicated to automotive developments and the role of plastics. You’ll hear from key automakers, top Tier 1 suppliers, key designers, foremost industry consultants and more.

Plus, all attendees receive complimentary admission to the North American International Auto Show following the conference, as well as the opportunity to buy discounted tickets to evening receptions at the 2018 Automotive News World Congress. Join with other top automotive plastics suppliers at the industry’s premier event in North America.
