The 2023 AIF in Frankfurt, Germany was an opportunity for the automotive design and manufacturing community to come together over two full days.

Attendees from around the world heard from leading OEMs, suppliers, start-ups and technology partners, and had the opportunity to network with experts in design, manufacturing and engineering.

We’d like to thank everyone who attended and supported the event.

AIF 2023 content is now available on demand! Head over to take in keynotes, deep dives, product news, and more.
