Automotive Lightweighting Consortium

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 17 aprile 2011

London 17-18 May 2011 at the Emirates Stadium in London. Automotive giant Nissan will be sharing some key insights and their perspective on vehicle lightweighting at Frost & Sullivan’s annual flagship client event, GIL 2011: Europe – Growth, Innovation and Leadership scheduled. One of the unique elements of Frost & Sullivan’s GIL Global community and its annual gathering are the visionary perspectives that senior executives have the opportunity to examine through their choice of a wide array of industry think tanks. These interactive sessions will cover a range of markets and industries while highlighting the critical developments therein. This year, the Chemicals & Materials think tank will kick-off with a 360 Degree Perspective on the Complex Business Universe by Frost & Sullivan. Growth consultants from within the Growth Partnership Services organization will present their view on the impact of global Mega Trends on the automotive materials industry and the opportunities that these changes represent for materials suppliers. Weight reduction strategies have been adopted by many automotive manufacturers in order to improve fuel economy and reduce vehicle emissions. Innovative materials can play a significant role in this process. Nissan’s Head of Materials Design and Testing, Mark Ellis, will discuss the challenges faced by the automotive giant in meeting emissions legislation and the impact that its vehicle lightweighting strategy will have on future material needs. Participants will have an opportunity to explore Nissan’s overall vehicle platform strategy, future electric vehicle applications, mass reduction targets and the materials strategy Nissan will adopt to achieve these targets. Attendance is a must for CEOs, Presidents, Vice Presidents, Business Development Managers, Strategic Planners, Marketing Executives and Research Staff of any plastics, additive, composite or adhesive company developing materials for the automotive market.
Further research and networking opportunities can be found at the Automotive Lightweighting Consortium organised by Frost & Sullivan’s Chemicals & Materials in Transportation team. This consists of a research programme and a series of events designed to bring OEMs and chemical companies together to discuss key issues and help accelerate vehicle weight reduction.
This year’s congress will also feature other industry think tanks focusing on Frost & Sullivan’s areas of industry specialisation – Aerospace & Defence; Energy & Environment; Building Technologies & Security; Healthcare & Life Sciences; Information & Communication Technologies; and Industrial Automation. Each think tank will afford participants the opportunity to brainstorm on how to shape a better future for their companies by driving innovation while developing and strengthening their company’s growth strategies.
