On October 12 and 13, 2021, the 9th International Conference "Automotive Wire Harness" will once again take place on a purely virtual basis.

The decision-makers of the automotive industry will gather.

We have chosen the online platform of VideoART because we see the best possible offer for our event here: Intuitive navigation, data security, presentation quality of speakers and lectures, exhibition stands, networking opportunities and chat options from a single source.

This time, the main focus of the conference will be the presentation of the on-board networks in the BMW iX as well as in the new models from Daimler, the S-Class and the EQS. In addition, it is about the new wiring system architectures and future bus systems. Find out about ways to automate production: from single wires to high-voltage wiring systems and about increasing the reliability of wiring systems and their components. Last but not least, the Volkswagen Group will provide information on the environmental targets for future vehicle electrical systems.

Georg Sterler will be the moderator again this year and, together with Süddeutscher Verlag Veranstaltungen, is looking forward to your participation and to exchanging ideas with you.
