Engine Congress

Industry meeting of the combustion engine community

The International Engine Congress of VDI Wissensforum and ATZlive in Baden-Baden has been an important meeting place for engine developers and fuel specialists for years. Decision makers and experts from all over the world meet here to discuss the future of the combustion engine.

The main focus of the congress is to discuss the technical potential of the combustion engine for emission-neutral mobility in the future, because electric mobility alone will not achieve the ambitious climate goals of this and the upcoming decades.  An important key here is fuel, because its decarbonization would help the entire engine-fuel system to move in the right direction for a climate-neutral propulsion.

The congress is therefore based on three equally important thematic pillars: consideration of the overall system of combustion engines for passenger cars and commercial vehicles as well as fuels.  The aim is to make targeted use of the synergies with regard to fuels, their properties and the new approaches to powertrain development based on them. With the close interaction between passenger car and commercial vehicle engine developers and fuel experts, we want to promote the exchange of experience, both nationally and internationally, within the framework of this multipart congress.

Good Reasons

Unique technical congress on the future of the entire combustion engine system

Not all the technological treasures of the combustion engine have yet been recovered. The International Engine Congress in Baden-Baden will provide excellent technical answers to the question of which levers can be used to raise efficiency to 50% and how the combustion engine, in combination with innovative fuels, plays an important role in climate-neutral mobility. The congress of VDI and ATZlive is regarded in the industry as the platform for open, controversial and forward-looking discussions about the mobility of tomorrow.

Excellent professional exchange with colleagues from home and abroad

As a participant, you can expect a cross-industry exchange between experts from the fields of passenger car and commercial vehicle engine development as well as from the fuel sector. Every year in February, you will have the opportunity to meet engine developers from all over the world in Baden-Baden and exchange ideas on the future of the entire combustion engine system. The focus is on concrete technological solutions and strategies for engine technology.

Large trade exhibition about engine technology

"Experts for experts" is the motto. Benefit from the large exhibition, TIER I-Supplier and OEs. The breaks offer plenty of space for exchanging information about the latest products and developments in engine technology alongside the specialist program.

Around 40 presentations by OEM representatives and the supplier industry

10 keynote speeches and 30 specialist presentations on a wide range of topics - that is the diversity of the Engine Congress. With your registration you can attend all presentations of the congress, you will receive all lectures of the strings "Passenger Car Engine Technology", Commercial Vehicle Engine Technology" and "Fuels". You can expect a professional and profound exchange of ideas at the highest level.

EUROGUSS MEXICO – 28 February - 2 March 2023 in Guadalajara

EUROGUSS MEXICO is your platform to establish and cultivate contacts and to present products, services and solutions to the visitors in all areas of non-ferrous diecasting. As Mexico’s die casting industry is growing rapidly, the event will bring together experts, providers and users from 28 February to 2 March 2023 in the Expo Center Guadalajara.

The rise of Mexico in the diecasting sector is mainly based on the domestic and international demand for lightweight car and auto aluminum die cast parts. In recent years, there has been a dramatic increase in tier 1, tier 2, and tier 3 high-pressure die casting suppliers.

The event is proud member of the EUROGUSS Family and is organized by PR1MA, the official representative from NürnbergMesse in Mexico. Several national and international partners support the event.

Formstoff-Forum 2023

Postponement of the symposium to spring 2023

With a heavy heart, we in the organization team made the decision today to postpone the 4th Formstoff Forum 2022 to a later date in spring 2023. The imponderables in connection with the Covid-19 pandemic and all associated official requirements for major events make a reliable and successful implementation in February 2022 very difficult from our point of view. The popular foundry evening in particular, which forms the forum for the exchange of ideas between all participants, has developed into a difficult item on the program.

As soon as the appointment has been set, we will put all current information together again for you here. We would be delighted if you would be there again for the new attempt in 2023.
