Suppliers' Day Baden-Württemberg

10 October 2024


The automotive industry is facing far-reaching challenges on a global scale and within a short time span. Particularly, the topics of digitalization, artificial intelligence, production automation, and the distributed footprints of companies worldwide influence competition. Excess capacities of vehicles, parts and components lead to fierce competition regarding prices. International climate protection regulations additionally drive the shift towards drives using renewable forms of energy. In vehicle construction, there lies great potential in the electrification of the drivetrain, which is currently one of the most important growth areas in the European and international markets.

With this in mind, the question is how small and medium-sized suppliers from Baden-Württemberg, in particular, can use these dynamic changes in the markets for their own benefit. This year‘s Automotive Suppliers Day Baden-Württemberg, therefore, has its focus on the components of the electric drivetrain and presents innovations in research and development.

The flexible and digitalized production of electric motors and batteries offers important starting points. New value creation steps, such as state-of-the-art recycling processes, open up more opportunities. The human-machine interface has seen rapid changes with the rise of artificial intelligence. The packaging within the vehicles requires completely new design concepts.

It is the people in the companies who are the decisive factors for success and growth. Therefore, not only the recruitment of skilled workers but also their qualification are key issues for the future. Important transformation and qualification alliances will present their current projects, trends, and measures at Automotive Suppliers Day Baden-Württemberg that can be beneficial for all participants.

Together with innovative companies, associations and partners, Automotive Suppliers Day Baden-Württemberg 2024 will showcase up-to-date concepts and ideas for the design of future-oriented products and processes.

Use this event as a platform for professional exchange within the network. Bring colleagues along and share the agenda in your communities so that as many suppliers from Baden-Württemberg as possible can gain valuable insights that they can use in their own efforts to shape the future of mobility.

The annual event is organized by the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Economic Affairs, Labour and Tourism and the State Agency for New Mobility Solutions and Automotive, e-mobil BW, as part of the Strategic Dialogue for the Automotive Sector in Baden-Württemberg.

We look forward to welcoming you at Neckar Forum Esslingen.
