Key event information

Get more from your materials

Material knowledge is often scattered throughout the organization. The digitalization of materials information is critical to your business.

Improve your Simulation, PLM and Design

Find out how to deliver accurate, consistent materials data direct into your current engineering and simulation software.

Connect islands of material knowledge

How can a single source of materials information help you create better vehicles? Take time out to learn the importance of building "material intelligence".

Understand vital materials-related topics

Learn the essentials about materials selection, test data management, composites, light-weighting, restricted substances and additive manufacturing.

Make better materials decisions

Gain invaluable insight from those who have implemented materials information technology and used it to guide decision-making, driving innovation and reducing risk.

Hear from OEM, Tier 1s, and Experts

Meet industry speakers and engineering software experts as they share real project experience of how using materials information helps their businesses.
