Event Overview

Examining the latest advancements in automotive materials

The introduction of alternative materials to the automotive market, the appointment of the new administration and evolving OEM supply preferences have added another dimension to automotive development, so the North American Automotive Metals Conference has evolved.

We’re bringing alternative materials into the discussion, bringing you even more networking opportunities, more expert content and a wider perspective of the automotive supply chain.

High on the agenda will be the latest developments and challenges in automotive lightweighting, OEM user preferences, regulatory discussions and the North American automotive markets.

With more than 85 companies in attendance, including OEMs and manufacturers of steel, aluminum, and various composite materials, this is the best opportunity to network with the entire automotive supply chain from across the USA, Canada and Mexico.

Topics will include:

  • Automotive material and vehicle purchasing trends within the U.S.
  • NAFTA Renegotiation and policy considerations
  • Cost, quality and delivery: challenges to automotive supply
  • How will the role of safeguarding be positioned in material purchasing considerations?
  • Policy, sustainability and environment: Will their importance hold fast in the new administration’s plans?  
  • Automotive scrap and recycling: necessity versus stewardship
  • What are the developments in supply and the 'production parts approval process' for tier ones?
