27. Automotive Forum Zwickau

What began in 1997 as a regional supplier conference has become a permanent fixture in the calendar, and not just for industry representatives: this year, the Automotive Forum Zwickau is taking place in the automotive city of Zwickau for the 27th time in a row.

Panel discussions paired with expert presentations, company visits and B2B platforms arouse interest among automotive and supplier companies beyond the borders of Saxony. New technologies, innovations, trends and challenges have always been hotly debated and will once again find their place on the agenda on November 7 and 8, 2023.
