International Conference : Congress SIA POWERTRAIN // Rouen 2018

  • 16 & 17 May 2018
  • Parc des Expositions Rouen, Normandy

Retour sur le congrès / Review of the Congress

 

 
 
This successful 2018 SIA POWERTRAIN conference has brought together 600 experts and 40 exhibitors of car industry, equipment manufacturers as well as research laboratories and universities.
The 60 high-quality speeches given by top powertrain experts have led the attendees to imagine the engines & energy of the future.
 
The first feedbacks show that attendees have enjoyed the relevance of the topics covered and the high quality of the well-focused speeches but above all they have enjoyed the networking opportunities with the attendance of decison-makers, the easy access to the speakers in a very pleasy atmosphere.
 
The exhibition was totally voted in, with a more convenient location than last years and the attendance of the major companies in one single dedicated area. Static demonstrators within the exhibition hall and a very easy access to the test drive 's cars was also part of its success.
 
Our new "SIA Conference" App has also met the attendees expectation ! They were able to exchange messages before and during the event, get the latest notifications and the opportunity to ask questions directly through this media which has been very appreciated during the Pannel session.
 

>> Access to Technical Papers in Publications

The SIA would like to thank all the attendees and exhibitors for their participation and dedication to our congress.
We now look forward to welcoming you to our next edition of the SIA POWERTRAIN // PARIS 2019.
