In partnership with The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS), Infocast’s inaugural Lightweighting Summit: New Solutions, New Suppliers will bring together the key strategists, decision-makers, innovators and investors in transportation and materials markets to explore how automotive (and indirectly, aerospace) supply chains will realign in preparation for lightweighting factors.
- Hear from OEMs about their targets, timelines, challenges and what kinds of new capabilities they are seeking from suppliers;
- Understand what Tier 1s are doing to help OEMs meet their goals, and what they are looking for from Tier 2-3 suppliers;
- Meet key potential senior partners from OEMs, Tier 1s and materials/chemical strategics to help commercialize innovative solutions;
- Learn about R & D funding opportunities and university R & D collaboration networks with strong links to the auto industry and aerospace.
The summit will be held May 20-21, 2014, at the DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Detroit Downtown, Detroit, Mich., U.S.A.
