The ‘Automotive Lightweight Procurement Symposium’ is the first event that brings together the procurement and supply side of lightweight materials and their advanced processes (aluminium, carbon, composites, high strength steel, magnesium as well as thermoplastics) in accompany with cost balance or reduction.

Localisation, best buy country and make or buy were some of the topics presented at the AluMag symposium. The event is designed for procurement executives who are part of the lightweight supply chain and engineering as well as technical sales managers seeking an understanding of the synergy of cost- / weight reduction programmes.

The next Automotive Lightweight Procurement Symposium will be held in Shanghai, China (6th – 8th of July 2015) and Detroit, USA (9th – 11th of Nov 2015)
