Past event: Automotive Chassis Systems USA Conference 2024

Steering Systems | Braking Systems | Suspension Systems

Three Razor-Focused Conferences Taking Place Simultaneously

  1. Braking Systems Conference
  2. Steering Systems Conference
  3. Advanced Suspension Systems Conference
In June 2024, we are giving vehicle manufacturers, Tier-1 and Tier-1 suppliers from three chassis system domains, Steering, Braking & Suspension Systems, the opportunity to attend not one, not two but three technical conferences simultaneously over three full days and learn & network in an environment that is built for knowledge sharing and business development. We're recognizing the current state of the US automotive steering, braking and suspension systems segments; this year’s power-packed Automotive Chassis Systems USA agenda digs deep into major industry drivers and delivers practical solutions to the industry’s greatest challenges.
  • Understand latest industry trends, where automotive steering, braking and suspension markets are headed, customer requirements, and visions of supply bases.
  • Hear from cost-conscious OEMs that are achieving high performance with lower cost technologies.
  • Hear from OEMs that are in charge of quarter-million to half-million dollars; companies that are truly pushing the boundaries and are not encumbered by cost.
  • Learn about bleeding-edge technologies from each of the different chassis sub-systems.
  • Learn new ways to improve performance while reducing complexity and cost of components.
  • Technology Demos: See real hardware, real software, and real functioning parts.
  • NEW* Hands-On ‘Ride & Drive’ Event: Get behind the wheel, in the driver’s seat to experience functionalities and performance of demonstrator vehicles.
  • With an optimal representation of companies from the supply base in our one-stop-shop exhibition area, Hear multiple suppliers’ vision and where they see new technology heading.
