Discover the event

With a firework of top-notch speakers we will be celebrating 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 others.

The attendees of this unique industry event will be able to listen to 23 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 will also be represented. Already a look at the list of speakers shows that all attendees will have excellent possibilities for networking at the highest level.

Embracing the topic theme “The Automotive Industry on its Way to the Software-Defined Car” the 25th anniversary edition will once again focus the most important challenges of the automotive electronics industry and its supporting industries.

Please note that we had to change the venue this year in order to provide the best networking possibilities even in times of the Covid-19 pandemic. In 2021 the “Family Gathering of the Automotive E/E Industry”, as it is called quite frequently, will take place at the Carl Benz Arena in Stuttgart/Germany.

Register early and ensure your participation because this event was sold out all the previous years!



With support of the advisory board we proudly present a program of its own class. Worth the 25th anniversary of the congress. Please have a look into the agenda on our website:
