GALM: THE WORLD'S MOST PRACTICAL, APPLICATIONS-FOCUSED AUTOMOTIVE LIGHTWEIGHT VEHICLE SERIES
The Global Automotive Lightweight Materials (GALM) series of conferences are the world's leading conferences on automotive lightweighting.
First launched in London and Detroit in 2012, the conference series have now grown into Asia.
The conferences all aim to provide practical solutions on strategic, tactical and technical challenges, and over the years almost 10,000 automotive experts have taken away invaluable insight and formed business-critical connections.
GALM Series Attendees Breakdown
The GALM Series is renowned globally for hosting the most OEM-led congresses all of which are designed carefully in conjunction with lightweight Engineers and Directors every year to ensure the most practical knowledge is exchanged at every event.
Attending OEMs Have Included
Due to the limited material, joining, forming and finishing technology and software available to OEMs globally, we always make sure delegates also come from key suppliers in the global lightweight vehicle arena, so that no influential players are left out in the cost reduction drive.
Past Sponsors & Exhibitors Have Included
"GALM has grown to be a valuable conference for sharing information regarding lightweight materials for the automotive industry"
Engineering Group Manager, General Motors
"Overall a very knowledge filled and well produced conference. Presenters were well selected and well prepared"
WHY THIS EVENT IS UNIQUE:
What Makes GALM The Industry Leading Event?
THE LARGEST AUTOMOTIVE OEM-LED LIGHTWEIGHT MATERIALS CONGRESS IS RETURNING FOR ITS SIXTH CONSECUTIVE YEAR
After continuous global growth and expansion the Global Automotive Lightweight Materials Europe 2017 conference is returning with 3 full days focusing on the thorough investigation of material selection strategies, multi material architectures, use of composites, thermoplastics, glass fiber and other materials, component weight reduction, innovative joining methods and many more.
What's new for GALM Europe 2017:
NEW DESIGN VALIDATION FOCUSED:
This conference will not only address the issues related to the multi material design development, but also discuss, based on the real life case studies, how the design teams were able to validate and get the "buy in" from the other teams in their multi material architectures
ADDRESSES THE INTRODUCTION OF NEW PROCESSES INTO THE EXISTING FACILITIES:
All participants will benefit from understanding the level of investment required for new materials and technologies and how to adapt the existing infrastructure to accommodate them without having to build new factories
MULTI MATERIAL FOCUSED:
With the automotive focus on utilizing different materials to achieve optimal cost & performance results, the agenda of GALM Europe 2017 will address the issues specific to designing with multiple materials and grades in mind
CLOSING THE GAP WITHIN THE SUPPLY CHAIN:
The conference will enable the dialogues between OEMs and different industry Tiers to find a solution on closing the supply chain gaps for new lightweight materials and technologies across the globe
NEW MODEL FOCUSED:
Based on the detailed consultation with OEMs for OEMs, the agenda content is purely industry driven with the program being designed to uncover opportunities with optimizing lightweighitng for electric, hybrid and conventional vehicles, addressing and eliminating at the core issues related to new designs
