Continuing the success of EuroBrake 2016, where over 1,000 delegates and 100 exhibitors took part, this year’s event will connect the world’s leading figures in braking technology. The Opening Keynote presentations will be delivered by Franck Poisson of French rail operator SNFC and Dr. Ralf Leiter of Tier 1 supplier Mando Corporation, while a special Panel discussion will raise important issues and generate lively debate about brake emissions.

New to 2017, students are being offered an exclusive opportunity to attend EuroBrake free of charge, via a sponsorship package which sees the introduction of a dedicated ‘Student Lounge’, where they will have a chance to network with experienced industry professionals and gain career advice in a relaxed setting. Students can apply for a free place here while organisations can find out about sponsorship packages here.

Chris Mason, FISITA CEO, said: “EuroBrake has grown to become one of the most influential events in the global automotive calendar, attracting an outstanding group of authors and delegates who are dedicated to progressing the latest technologies. Our new Student Opportunities Programme will also help to connect a host of global organisations with the emerging talent of tomorrow.

“We are delighted to be returning to Dresden in 2017 where our compelling agenda features an international panel of speakers, who will engage in number of key industry topics, including braking emissions – an increasingly important topic that generates significant discussion around the world.”

EuroBrake was created in 2012 to support the braking technology community with the profound changes made by the evolution of the mobility agenda and the braking industry’s customers and end-users. The conference has also developed a solid reputation as the forum for companies and engineers working in the area of brake technology to come together to share ideas. The event attracts engineers, scientists, academics and executives from across the globe from passenger car, commercial vehicle, rail, aerospace, OEMs and supply chain companies.
