The objective of holding the automotive conference on different continents in turn is the increased focus on the requirements and challenges of individual country markets, while still discussing them in an international context. This year, for example, the focus is on Europe, although participants from Asia and America have also registered at this time. The target group of trend.scaut are the decision-makers in the automotive industry and its supply industry, in the supplier companies, and the raw materials industry. In the past years, developers and production managers have participated along with market analysts and marketing experts.
ENGEL was able to attract renowned speakers in the key topics of Global Market View, Future Automotive Driving and Interior Concepts, New Energy Vehicles and Lightweight Design. They come from LMC Automotive, McKinsey & Company, Car Men, Yanfeng Automotive Interiors, Volvo Car Group, Magna Steyr Engineering, BASF, Kreisel Electric, Audi, Voestalpine Metal Forming, Sabic, and ENGEL AUSTRIA. "We are especially pleased that the global players known throughout the various sectors will be represented alongside highly innovative area companies", says Franz Füreder, Vice President ENGEL automotive at ENGEL AUSTRIA. "The creative potential of Upper Austria and the region around St. Valentin and Steyr plays a key role in the mobility of the future. Our guests will experience this inspiring environment at trend.scaut 2017."
The first day of the conference is dedicated to keynote speeches and discussions. The event venue will be the Design Center in Linz. The second day revolves around practical applications. In ENGEL's large-machine factory in St. Valentin, participants will be introduced to several machine exhibits with leading-edge new technologies:
St. Valentin is not only the location of the large machine plant, it also houses the Technology Centre for Lightweight Composites by ENGEL. Participants of trend.scaut 2017 will be offered exclusive guided tours of the plant by ENGEL. The location is currently going through a significant expansion. For the first time, the new assembly hall will be open for visitors.
