Innovative Seating 2013

(PresseBox) (Berlin, ) The trend towards more fuel efficient vehicles as well the increasing number of electric vehicles drive the development of lightweight seats. For the 8th time in a row, this event gathers major industry leaders from OEMs, seat manufacturers and suppliers. Join us from 25 - 28 February, 2013 in Bonn to share new and exciting developments in the industry.
The challenge across all industries is to minimise seat weight but at the same time optimising seat ergonomics and still meeting legal requirements. Moreover, comfort requirements are vital for customer satisfaction. This year’s conference will focus on following topics:

Customers’ demands for comfort, flexibility and safety: Involvement of users in the seat development process
