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!

What to expect at EuroCarBody

OEM Car Body Presentations

Recently launched car body projects will be featured at EuroCarBody 2022. Each of these car bodies will be explained in detail via

- a 50-minute technical presentation given by the corresponding OEM developers, covering all important aspects of the car body’s development, construction and production. Presenters may choose to include some technological “Deep Dives” into specific aspects of the car body project, which will be addressed in greater detail.

- a 40-minute public and individual Q&A session of the speakers with the audience, assembled around the corresponding body-in-white exhibit, forming the “Automotive Circle”!

 

Body-in-white exhibition

Car bodies presented will be exhibited and available for individual inspection by all conference participants during all three conference days.


Sneak Preview

Meet the OEM speaker teams at their body-in-white exhibit, even before their presentation: For the Sneak Preview, the speaker teams presenting on a given conference day will be available at their car body one hour before the start of the conference day to answer your first questions and provide first explanations.


New Car Show

Inspect the full vehicles that correspond to the car bodies presented: During every lunch break, the full vehicles will be opened and can be inspected by everyone. Speakers and Advisory Board members will be available for demonstrations and further questions. Use this opportunity to study the implementation of the car body in the full vehicle and to widen your contacts.

 

Networking

With its unique audience of car body engineering experts from all over the world, EuroCarBody offers ample opportunity for networking and an intensive exchange of views and information – especially during the informal networking dinners on the evenings of the first two conference days.


EuroCarBody Awards

An inherent part of the EuroCarBody conference is the bestowal of the EuroCarBody Awards, the highest accolade in car body engineering worldwide. The car bodies presented at the conference will enter one of two separate competitions, namely:

·       EUROCARBODY AWARD | PREMIUM SEGMENT, comprising car bodies that have been developed for a predominantly technology-oriented, premium vehicle segment, or for the

·       EUROCARBODY AWARD | VOLUME SEGMENT, comprising car bodies that have been developed for a predominantly cost-oriented, volume-production vehicle segment

The Award winners are determined by a vote on five technical categories. Votes are cast by

·       all conference participants (60% of the total voting results)

·       EuroCarBody’s OEM Advisory Board members (40%)




The 2022 EuroCarBody Awards will be annou
nced at the end of the conference.
