Car Body Xperience

Car Body Xperience

Managing change is not for cowards – and there is a lot that is changing in the automotive industry today. In order to meet the technological, social and environmental challenges of our time, the industry is shifting towards more electrification, digitalization and sustainability, to name just a few of the current key issues. But identifying them is one thing, making them work another.

  • With regard to car body engineering and production, which specific technological innovations will ultimately drive these changes, and in which markets?
  • How are different OEMs and their suppliers addressing these challenges individually, which solutions have been developed and implemented so far?
  • What are the best strategies and concepts for cost, time and resource efficiency?
  • In other words, how can car body engineering provide the best solutions for the challenges ahead?

The Automotive Circle launches a completely new conference in North America in 2023 to address these challenges, and to bring together its worldwide network of automotive engineering experts who are tasked with making these changes work. With this conference, we are going to address the latest developments in car body engineering and manufacturing.

  • See and discuss, in detail, these Bodies-in-White on site:

  • Enjoy two conference days full of technological deep dives by engineers from the most relevant OEMs and their suppliers
  • Meet and connect with the other engineering experts at the conference


Let’s get together from April 25 – 26, 2023 in Rochester, MI, USA to stay up to date with the latest car body projects and experience the latest solutions firsthand! We are looking forward to meeting you in Rochester next spring!
