In today's market, automotive suppliers and OEMs face the increasing
challenge of staying ahead of their competitors. To address this issue, the
Society of Automotive Engineers chose "Technical Cooperation and Global
Competition" as the theme for their 1996 International Congress &
Exposition. More than 700 of the industry's top manufacturers and suppliers will
exhibit their contributions to automotive technology at the show.
In keeping with the international theme, a European Village will feature exhibiting companies from Great Britain, Austria, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Germany, France, Italy, Belgium, and Sweden. The Village will be a networking event between European automotive suppliers and U.S. OEMs, and is being planned by the state of Michigan in cooperation with SAE and the European Commission.
1,000 technical papers will be presented at the 200 technical sessions covering automotive engineering. This year's Blue Ribbon Panel will feature high-level executives in an open and conversational forum discussing the global competition theme. Spotlight on India will give attendees a glimpse of how to conduct business in this emerging nation.
The Society for Automotive Engineers is a non-profit educational and scientific organization. The SAE International Congress & Exposition is the world's largest event dedicated to automotive engineering. Nearly 50,000 engineers, designers, and specifiers from more than 70 countries will be in attendance.
