11th Annual Global Automotive Lightweight Materials Congress

The largest and most trusted automotive lightweight materials congress is returning to Detroit for the 4th time. The 11th Annual Global Automotive Lightweight Materials Congress is being held August 18-20, 2015 in Detroit, Michigan.

This is the largest and most trusted automotive lightweight materials conference, and this years installment of GALM is scheduled to be the biggest and best ever. The series has been attended by 2000+ attendees across the globe, and our flagship event is returning to Detroit with a 3-day agenda – to share unprecedented detail across composites, joining, forming and multi-material design.

Building on the successes of GALM events in London, Detroit and Shanghai this year, this event is fully expected to sell-out, with over 80 attendees and 24 exhibitors already confirmed.

Expert Panel Of Speakers at GALM 2015 Detroit includes:

• David Wagner, Technical Leader Lightweight Vehicle Design, Ford
