24th Global Car Body Benchmarking Conference

 Apply here now

We are looking forward to meeting you again when EuroCarBody, the globally leading international series car body benchmarking conference, re-opens its gates in Bad Nauheim/Germany for hands-on, exclusive presentations of current, recently launched car body projects from all over the world.

This is where the global elite of car body engineers meet to benchmark current car body development, performance and production, with detailed technical presentations by OEM engineering teams directly involved in the development of the presented car bodies, explaining their construction, material and production concepts, and subsequently answering your questions at and around the corresponding car body exhibit. Car body exhibits can be fully inspected by all conference participants during the three conference days; the same is true for the respective full vehicles, which will also be on display.

As part of the conference proceedings, the standardised EuroCarBody benchmark data will be provided for all delegates, with detailed information on weights, materials, parts, joining technologies as well as production data of all car bodies presented.

Be part of this outstanding event and its discussions!

Established in 2002, the bestowal of the annual EuroCarBody Awards represents the climax of each EuroCarBody conference.

The Awards, generally regarded as the highest accolade in car body engineering worldwide, are granted by Automotive Circle for the most convincing OEM car body development presented at the conference, regarding both product and process innovations. The presentations enter one of two separate competitions:

PREMIUM SEGMENT, comprising vehicles that have been developed for a pre-dominantly technology-oriented, premium vehicle segment

VOLUME SEGMENT, comprising cars that have been developed for a pre-dominantly cost-oriented, volume-production vehicle segment.

The Award winners are determined by the combined vote of the conference audience and the conference’s OEM Advisory Board, based on the evaluation of five equal-weight technical criteria:

1. Car body development and construction
2. Material development and application
3. Production efficiency
4. Car-body-implied customer value

5. Quality and completeness of the presentation

As of April 2, 2022 most Covid-19 restrictions on everyday life and for hosting conferences have been lifted. The new nationwide legal framework provides only a few general protective measures.

The current regulations in Germany and specifically in the state of Hessen do not include any access restrictions. In order to participate in our conferences you currently do not need to show any evidence in form of Covid-19 vaccination, negative tests or similar. In case of changes we will of course inform you in time.

We kindly ask you to make your visit only if you are in good health. If you feel unwell during the conference, please contact us or your hotel reception immediately by phone or email. We will then be happy to help you.

Cancellations due to health reasons can be cancelled free of charge at any time with a medical certificate. If a participant is demonstrably unable to attend due to travel restrictions, he/she has the option of converting the attendance participation into a digital participation (if this is offered). Any cost differences will be reimbursed.

We kindly ask you to follow the usual etiquette regarding sneezing and coughing.


Disinfection and cleaning
For your safety, we will regularly clean and disinfect high-touch surfaces (e.g. tables, handrails, door handles) as well as our sanitary facilities at more frequent intervals. You will find hand washing and disinfection facilities designed with social distancing in mind at all important places at the conference area.
