GALM Returns With An Extended Three-Day Format, New Location And Revamped Agenda

The 5th Annual GALM Europe 2016 edition is coming to Birmingham for the first time and brings its legacy of up-to-date practical case studies and the presentaton of innovative weight & cost reduction solutions for the European automotive industry. The 2016 event is supported by Composites UK.

New forthis year, the focus is on mature solutions enabling OEMs to identify the technologies and processes that are ready to be implemented into their assembly lines focusing on procurement, costs, lifecycle time and manufacturability. The organisers say the event has attracted brand new speakers to the programme delivering fresh success stories from OEMs such as Audi, Lamborghini, Jaguar Land Rover, Great Wall Motor China, Geely, Bentley and more.

The return of the successful body-in-white exhibition will include more models and a bigger space, allowing the participants to network while physically testing the latest breakthroughs in automotive lightweighting.
The agenda for the fifth edition has been completely reinvented to bring the latest knowledge to the scrutiny of a keen automotive audience. For the first time the programme has been extended to include three full days, with OEM presentations looking to assess performance, weight, cost, durability and maintainability of aluminium, high strength steel, composites and other lightweight materials.
More than 25 presentations over three days will look at minimising the procurement, technology and engineering costs for lightweight materials with a focus on mature solutions.
