Global Seating Materials & Technology Innovation

During these challenging and unprecedented times, WeAutomotive continue to work and engage meaningful within the global seating community across all tiers. Whilst across the industry physical meetings are postponed or cancelled, we continue to communicate with over 60,000 automotive seating professionals across the entire value and production chain, to present new information and technologies; to address the key and current challenges, and to advance new seating materials, systems and technology adoption.

As technologies such as autonomous driving disrupt the automotive industry, and drivers technological expectations become more advanced, seating is now one of the most strategic systems inside a vehicle. Following this years Global Automotive Lightweight Seating Congress in Detroit, the Webinar Series comprises of technical content-lead sessions, individually set out, to systematically address the design, material, manufacture and technological challenges of mass producing cost effectively – light, smart, automotive seating solutions.

The Global Automotive Lightweight Seating Portfolio is the only truly OEM authored, interactive forum, exclusively for the key decision makers driving seating innovation within OEMs, their Suppliers and their Tiers. Our focus is on the real current challenges of mass vs comfort vs durability, and the real common denominator – innovating while reducing cost and meeting regulations. This week long series of free to attend webinars, hosted by the industries leaders will take a comprehensive and technical view on new technologies, materials and manufacturing process across all faculties of seat production – including foam, comfort, trim, structure and mechanisms, core, manufacturing, assembly, seat complete and over-all interior design and integration, to provide participants with solid take away solutions, ideas and an opportunity to reconnect.
