Announcement: The Automotive Designers Show has been re-scheduled
Following consultation with all companies participating in The Automotive Designers Show the organisers have decided that due to the current economic situation and the short term restrictions many companies currently have in place in respect of travel, accommodation etc this event will now be rescheduled to take place 8th – 10th September 2009.
Whilst this decision is regretful, the organisers have spoken with many of the OEM departments involved in vehicle design and understand that for many of those wishing to attend the show this type of non-essential expenditure may be seen as unacceptable at this moment in time.
The organisers obviously regret any inconvenience the rescheduling of this event may cause for those that were planning to visit Milan in April. The new website for the September event will appear on April 10th 2009.
Optis will display their Speos digital modelling software
First presented back in April 2008, the Automotive Designers Show will take place in Milan on next April 7th, 8th and 9th.
The event includes both an exhibition and a conference and is dedicated to all aspects of interior and exterior design.

Every stand on every aisle will be relevant to vehicle design so along with the conference this will provide a dedicated event for design teams working on automotive, industrial, commercial and recreational vehicle design.
The show is not open to the public.
Car Body Design will be present at the event with its own stand. Updates on our programme will follow in the upcoming months.
