The Chassis Day takes place every other year before the Aachen Colloquium as an established industry meeting place for future chassis technologies and development.
Come to Aachen and participate in discussions on the following topics:
>Driving Comfort – A forgotten feature?
>Driving Experience – An underestimated challenge?
>Chassis Development – What will the future look like?
>Chassis Innovations – How to implement new chassis ideas?
We hope to provide answers to these questions with interesting presentations on these and related topics. To this end, we have engaged qualified speakers and are looking forward to informative input and animated discussions.
Through this event we want to be able to better assess the undoubtedly central role of future chassis in a complete vehicle concept.
Following the conclusion of the 7th Chassis Day, the 19th Aachen Colloquium Automobile and Engine Technology begins in the Eurogress. Once again, one of the central themes of the colloquium this year will be the chassis.
We warmly invite you to come and spend a few fascinating, informative and chassis-filled days in the imperial city of Aachen.
