MATERIALICA is Europe’s top event for material-driven and supplier-oriented product innovations. The future-oriented innovative field of “lightweight design” continues to set the course for a new age in electric mobility, aerospace, new energy and automotive industries as well as groundbreaking product developments in the sports and leisure arena.

This is why the trade fair MATERIALICA is specifically highlighting Lightweight Design this year. The focus will be on innovative lightweight concepts for the consumer sectors mentioned above.

Targets such as weight-reduction, intelligent energy concepts as well as conservation of resources and functions integration have turned the competencies of lightweight design into a key discipline across technologies for achieving significant gains in productivity and competitiveness. Users from the automobile, engineering, chemical and electronics industries, from aerospace and new age as well as from the lifestyle sector will be able to realize market-defining, unique selling points in their product development by applying this approach and will simultaneously ensure a huge competitive edge from a technological standpoint.

The intentionally close ties to the successful partner trade fairs eCarTec and sMove360° create valuable synergies that will allow the MATERIALICA 2012 to continue on its path of significant expansion. 


The 15th International Trade Fair for Materials Applications, Surface Technology, and Product Engineering will be held the 23-25 October 2012, in Munich Trade Fair Centre, Munich, Germany.
