Shanghai, China

Supported by IOM3/Automotive Division

Asia's leading conference on optimising lightweight material selection and body structure design for electric vehicles. 

The 3rd Global Lightweight Materials Asia conference returns to Shanghai this year on 31 July - 1 August. Part of the widely renowned GALM series, the 2018 event will feature case studies on successful practical applications of new joining and simulation technologies, including real-world insights and results from OEMs in Asia, Europe and USA.

Uniquely, attendees at GALM Asia will gain visionary solutions and methodologies for reducing the cost of joining mixed materials including aluminium, UHSS, composites and magnesium and more effectively manufacture in high volumes – in order to help the drive towards greater EV production.

With a large Exhibitor Showcase featuring leading solution providers from across the globe, an Evening Networking Drinks Reception, and an expert global speaker panel, this is the most important conference in Asia in 2018 covering all the commercial, practical and technical issues for optimizing lightweight material selection for EV body structure design.
