Discover the event

With a firework of top-notch speakers we celebrated the 25th anniversary of the International Automobil-Elektronik Kongress – the leading global event for executives & experts in the automotive electronics environment: manufacturers, suppliers, service providers and tech companies. It is too early to disclose the program for the 26th Automobil-Elektronik Kongress yet, which will take place June 28-29, 2022 in Ludwigsburg but the advisory board is already working intensively to provide an outstanding line-up of speakers and presentations.

A look back at the 25th Automobil-Elektronik Kongress (2021 edition) provides a glimpse at the character and contents of this unique industry event. For example, the attendees listened to 22 presentations given by inspiring speakers from China, Europe, Japan and the USA. Of course, the major European OEMs and some of the world’s largest suppliers were represented as well as tech companies like Google. Already a look at the list of speakers shows that all attendees had excellent possibilities for networking at the highest level, and in 2022 this high-level networking will play a major role as well.

In 2021 the topic theme was “The Automotive Industry on its Way to the Software-Defined Car”. Be prepared to read the 2022 main claim once the program will have been released. For sure, the 26th International Automobil-Elektronik Kongress will once again focus and spotlight the most important challenges of the automotive electronics industry and its supporting industries.

Please note that the event will return to Ludwigsburg/Germany in 2022.
Register early and ensure your participation because this event was sold out all the previous years before the Covid-19 pandemic!

By the way: Despite the pandemic the 2021 event (creating severe difficulties and hurdles for many non-Europeans to travel abroad) was extremely-well visited as well.
