Autolink 2017 – Automotive Futures


The theme for Autolink 2017 is ‘Trends in Automotive’, perfect for ESTnet members who work with the automotive sector now, or would like to in the near future.

We are delighted to announce that the Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership (LCVP) will be attending Autolink 2017 and will make a presentation on the projects they are involved in and how their working groups operate, with the potential for a workshop in Wales. 


We are particularly keen to have a vibrant exhibition area to enable organisations to showcase their latest products in particular in the areas of propulsion, chassis, interiors, connectivity and autonomy - 5G, digital and cyber security. 

The aim of the exhibition is to attract both engineers and buyers from the vehicle manufacturers and tier 1s as well as providing the perfect environment for networking.


Registration is now open and to book your place or register your interest to exhibit please follow the Autolink link.
