AutoTechInsight Webinar: A new design language – automotive interior and exterior trends 

Our experts will discuss the latest industry trends seen in automotive interiors and exteriors. More specifically, we will review new light sources that open new horizons in lighting style and performance and explain how interior ambient lighting is becoming a brand differentiation factor.

The experts will also cover developments in interior trims and surfaces and what the future of seating holds. Automotive fabrics have advanced significantly over time; once used primarily due to their durability, fabrics now contribute substantially toward enhancing cabin aesthetics, which our experts will further explain during the second half of the webinar.
