10th International Conference Innovative Seating

Textiles, Fabrics, Materials, Lightweight, Comfort, Development Process, Design, Customer Expectation

After nine successful annual conferences with an exclusive focus on Innovative Seating, this anniversary edition of the 10th International Conference Innovative Seating 2015 is even more promising!

Over the last decade we have provided the automotive seating community with a wonderful platform for exchanging knowledge and ideas. We have heard dozens of case-studies relating to important and acute issues.

This year we bring you next generation innovative seating solutions to enhance quality of seating systems and comfort levels.

We will discover in this conference how to design and manufacture a seat that is light, safe, flexible, comfortable and cheap:

  • Find out about smart textiles products that enhance automotive seat comfort to differentiate from competitors
  • Hear how to shorten the time from idea to product through innovative development process
  • Master the challenge of weight reduction by applying materials with light weight performance in seat structures and frames
  • Get insides on defining the comfort level in order to provide the highest level of comfort to people of all shapes and sizes
  • Discover how to overcome the conflict between cost reduction and the use of new materials by assessing pros and cons of different materials
