China SAE Congress awarded with inaugural ‘Endorsed by FISITA’ certification

6 November 2018

FISITA, the international federation for the automotive and mobility systems engineering profession, today launches Endorsed by FISITA, with 2018 China SAE Congress & Exhibition (SAECCE) the first to receive accreditation.

With the support of its Executive Board and Technical Committee, ‘Endorsed by FISITA’ has been created to acknowledge the highest quality international technical events and conferences delivered exclusively through the international FISITA membership network.

China SAE President Dr. Jun Li collected the award at the Opening Ceremony of SAECCE. He said: “We are honoured to receive such prestigious recognition from FISITA for our annual Congress, which is attended by thousands of automotive engineers from around the world. We are extremely proud to receive FISITA’s first certificate of Endorsement and would like to express our deepest gratitude to its Technical Committee for acknowledging China SAE.”

Chris Mason, FISITA CEO, presented the Endorsed by FISITA accreditation to Dr. Li. He added: “We are thrilled to launch Endorsed by FISITA in Shanghai with our colleagues at Chi­­na SAE – this new accreditation represents a significant member benefit and will only be awarded to the world’s leading technical events in automotive and mobility systems engineering.”

FISITA Member Society China SAE is a national academic organization, founded in 1963. Its overall aims and objectives are to organise symposia, seminars, and in-service training; to promote the popularisation of the automotive technology; to establish working relationships with foreign societies of automotive engineers and to participate in international exchanges. Celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2018, SAECCE is an international conference and accompanying exhibition, which is held once a year in different locations in China.

Following a refresh, FISITA’s vision to ‘Promote Excellence in Mobility Engineering’ enabled this new endorsement to replace the existing FISITA ‘Patronage’ and ‘Supported by’ status, creating this new and improved international sign of quality.
