10 May 2017

FISITA, the international federation for the automotive mobility engineering profession, welcomed 1,000 attendees from around the world to Dresden, Germany last week for EuroBrake - the world’s largest braking technology conference and exhibition. 

Chris Mason, FISITA CEO, said: “EuroBrake 2017 was a fabulous success and I am proud to have welcomed so many attendees of the highest calibre to Dresden, including 50 mobility engineers of the future, who took part in the latest EuroBrake innovation, the Student Opportunities Programme.

“Speaking to many of our delegates and exhibitors, it is clear that EuroBrake is regarded as the must-attend braking event in the industry, with such high levels of satisfaction reported, we look forward to reporting the output of our onsite surveys very soon. Meanwhile, I would like to extend our thanks to all that participated so positively and our sponsors for their continued support.

“We now look forward to delivering EuroBrake 2018, which will take place in The Hague, Netherlands next May.”

New to 2017, FISITA introduced the Student Opportunities Programme, providing 50 students with a unique opportunity to participate with full delegate passes and an exclusive lounge to network with experienced industry professionals and gain career advice in a relaxed setting. They spoke to colleagues from programme sponsors including Daimler, NUCAP, Audi, Bosch, Brembo, Continental, Lapinus Fibres, TMD Friction, Zeon and ZF.

Now in its sixth year, EuroBrake has grown to become the world’s largest technical event of its kind, with a significant technical programme consisting of 25 technical sessions and over 140 technical presentations, while over 100 international organisations also took part in the exhibition. EuroBrake attracts delegates from the industries of passenger cars, commercial vehicles, rail, aerospace and academia.
