Plastics in Automotive Lightweighting Conference, is a brand new event for the UK, brought to you by PRW magazine,  following the success of the European automotive conference series organised by our sister publication Plastics News Europe.

Our events are respected knowledge and networking forums for the automotive industry. On this occasion, leading experts will come together to discuss the future of lightweight vehicles, as well as the trends and challenges that are likely to be specific to the UK automotive industry.

The automotive industry has been tasked with the challenge of coming up with plastics which reduce vehicle bodyweight and lead to fewer emissions, through developing lightweight materials and polymer-based components. Consumer demand for ‘greener’ vehicles is one driver of this trend, while environmental legislation is also a prominent factor. 

This new PRW conference will be the knowledge and networking event for the automotive lightweighting industry, one where leading experts can come together to discuss a variety of topics, including the probable range of weight reduction targets which will be demanded by stiffer CO2 emissions regulations across all major market segments; identify the practicable options to reduce these emissions and discuss growing consumer demand for 'greener' vehicles.

Join us at the UK edition of this conference to network with OEMs, Tier 1 manufacturers and plastics companies and to find out about the latest information on materials and technology to ensure that your business is ready, as these 'must-meet' targets loom ever closer.
