iVT Expo to launch in February 2019

It has just been announced that iVT Expo will be taking place February 13-14, 2019. This new, unmissable event for your diary will be the world’s premier expo where OEM engineers and decision makers will get to discover cutting-edge technologies, Tier 1 suppliers, manufacturing experts, and engineering service providers.

There will be no vehicle launches hogging the limelight, no irrelevant, non-vehicle-related exhibitors – just the component suppliers and innovators you need to help you build and develop industrial vehicles, all in one place: Köln Messe, Cologne, Germany, February 13-14, 2019. What’s more, the event will be completely free to attend.

At IVT Expo you’ll discover the next generation of industrial vehicle components, materials, concepts and manufacturing technologies, helping you build vehicles with reduced emissions, increased automation, improved durability and exceptional ergonomics. Every class of industrial vehicle will be covered, from
off-highway loaders, mining equipment and excavators, to
tractors, cranes and lift-trucks.

IVT Expo will bring together key innovators, enabling attendees to not only see and touch the components that are available, but also talk to the experts who can give invaluable insight into exactly how they can be integrated into vehicle designs.

Also on show will be a host of new control and testing systems that will be required to enable safe operation of new vehicles. From cabin equipment and sensors, to testing and validation services such as durability rigs, NDT and EMC testing systems, it’s all going to be in Cologne in February 2019.

Incredible conferences
IVT Expo will also host our established annual conferences: the IVT Electric & Hybrid Industrial Vehicle Technology Symposium and the IVT Autonomous Industrial Vehicle Technology Symposium.

These highly respected events, which already take place every year in Cologne, bring together R&D engineers and heads of design and engineering from around the world to discuss, debate and analyze the growing possibilities and future developments for hybrid and electric powertrains as well as automation of industrial vehicles.

“The conference has a very interesting mix of speakers, all touching on the important disruptive technology of electric vehicles,” said Dave Ross, VP for advance technology and verification at Volvo CE, speaking about the electric and hybrid event. “There were tons of good questions and a lot of really positive energy.”

If you want to create innovative, market-leading industrial vehicles, with cutting-edge designs that improve efficiency and sales, you can’t afford to miss iVT Expo. Book your pass now
