Materials week "Materials For The Future": 27 - 29 September 2017 in Dresden

Congress and exhibition for materials and applications

The meeting point for all material applicators, fabricators, producers, developers and researchers

Technical development and economic success decisively depend on the use of suitable materials. Developers, producers and applicators use “Materialsweek 2017” as an industrial gathering. With a wide area of topics, Materialsweek offers an ideal forum for the exchange of information, making interesting contacts and the transfer of new materials into application. Energy, communication, health or safety: All megatrends of the future are based on the development of innovative materials.


The Congress

The congress will show innovative material developments and applications with a wide range of plenaries and survey lectures, workshops and posters. In top-class symposia, technical expertise will be presented and application problems will be discussed. 

The Exhibition

The exhibition offers ideal conditions for producers, processors and applicators of materials as well as for producers of machines, facilities and testing equipment to present their products. The exhibition “Materials for the Future” thereby contributes to the understanding of the potential of innovative materials. 

Assure your company’s success and future – take advantage of this platform! Be part of "Materialsweek” and join our mailing list.
