FAVSA — Future Armoured Vehicles Situational Awareness
29 Mar 2017 - 30 Mar 2017
London, United Kingdom
Firmly established as the leading conference for armoured vehicle experts focused on C2, C4i, sensors and optronics, the 2017 show invites not only the programme managers, capability directors and operational commanders from the armed forces, but will also provide a perfect platform for both operational users and industry to share their experiences in the enhancement of situational awareness, information gathering and information sharing. Highlights will include a spotlight from combat vehicle market leaders such as Thales SAS, Leonardo and PSM, plus keynotes from a global line-up of armed forces leading capability development including France, Germany, Israel, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, UK and USA. The only conference of its kind exclusively dedicated to armoured vehicle situational awareness, will hone in on key topics surrounding vetronics architectures, sensor integration, CIS and battle management, plus much more!

The 6th Global Automotive Lightweight Materials Europe Summit 2017 — The 6th Global Automotive Lightweight Materials Europe Summit 2017
25 Apr 2017 - 27 Apr 2017
Birmingham, United Kingdom
With global demand for lightweight automotive materials predicted to continue increasing, we are delighted to bring you the latest instalment of the Global Automotive Lightweight Materials series – the leading conference series dedicated to automotive lightweighting and with sell out events on both sides of the Atlantic.

The 6th Global Automotive Lightweight Materials Europe (April 25th-27th, 2017, UK) will focus specifically on the latest advancements in materials, including metals, composites and thermoplastics, reliable joining methods & new solutions for lightweighting of structural parts and components, as well as lightweighting that is specific to conventional and electric vehicle ranges.

Our improved 2017 programme will deliver industry-leading expertise into key new areas and will offer unique insight into the strategic and practical considerations to drive quality and cost effectiveness across lightweight vehicle lines.


MATERIAL SELECTION STRATEGIES & MUTLI MATERIAL ARCHITECTURES: Review practical OEM case studies to understand material selection and implementation philosophies that allowed OEMs to achieve considerable weight and costs savings

LIGHTWEIGHTING OPPORTUNITIES OF STRUCTURAL PARTS, COMPONENTS, ENGINE AND POWERTRAIN: Explore new materials, weight reduction opportunities and design methodologies driven by the changing vehicle manufacturing landscape

INNOVATIVE JOINING TECHNOLOGIES: Review new joining methods for metals to composites, metals to metals and plastics to metals to evaluate their high volume feasibility and potential cost savings

USE OF COMPOSITES, THERMOPLASTICS, GLASS FIBER AND OTHER NEW MATERIALS FOR WEIGHT REDUCTION: Learn about the manufacturing developments of new material processes to explore areas for their applications in new vehicle models

LIGHTWEIGHTING FOR ELECTRIC VEHICLE RANGES: Explore opportunities for lightweighting across new electric vehicle ranges

MATERIAL PRODUCTION METHODS: Review developments in material production methods, including injection molding, RTM, high pressure die casting, and others to understand how they drive cost reduction across multi material designs
