Automotive Paint Shop Innovation Congress

Designed To Provide Real Solutions To The Technical And Commercial Challenges Of The Modern Automotive Paint Shop

OEMs globally are rapidly innovating in the field of new paint and coatings technology and application, particularly as the industry moves towards more compact, integrated and low temperature processes. And within the global automotive industry, the evolution of trends such as lightweight materials, electrification and autonomous are also driving strategic changes within the Paint Shop itself.

Following the continued success of our internationally acclaimed Battery Electric Vehicle Architecture Series, Global Automotive Lightweight Materials and Global Automotive Lightweight Materials Manufacturing events, the 1st Automotive Paint Shop Innovation Congress - Southern States will bring together OEMS and materials manufacturers with paint, coatings, chemicals and other technology companies based in the Southern United States; a major manufacturing hub for many of the leading automotive brands.

Why Are We Holding This Congress Now?

A number of factors are behind the development of our agenda. The growing utilization of mixed materials (substrates) in vehicle construction requires the use of new types of paints/coatings and painting technologies or processes to allow for the painting and curing of multi-substrate and standard car bodies on the same line. The drive to reduce environmental impact and to meet new regulatory requirements through the use of more environmentally friendly paint and painting methods is also a major driver. The need to implement new energy and cost saving paint technologies must be achieved without compromising the quality of paint finish, and finally, paint materials and technologies need to be compatible with the evolving requirements of vehicle electrification and autonomous driving, two major trends within automotive.

Not just another technical conference on coatings technology, the 1st Automotive Paint Shop Innovation Congress - Southern States will bring together the OEM community to evaluate and compare real results on the technologies they are utilizing and discover what other OEMs are doing in respect of new research, new ideas and new strategies.
