Major global auto producers to present their latest innovations at Dritev 2019



A number of OEM presentations by key global automotive producers have been announced for the Dritev – Drivetrain for Vehicles congress, organised by VDI Wissenforum, which will run in Bonn, Germany, from July 10–11, 2019. The congress addresses current developments and challenges in the vehicle drivetrain industry, from electrification to Noise Vibration Harshness (NVH).

The congress schedule comprises a programme of lectures, presentations and parallel events, and is expected to host more than 1,500 developers, around 100 international exhibitors and 80 specialist speakers, making it what is believed to be one of the largest networking platforms for automotive powertrain and transmission development.
