In its 20th year, ITB’s conference remains the premier technical event in North America focused on the latest trends, technologies, regulations, and developments shaping automotive fuel systems, components, and alternative energy systems. We provide a unique platform where global experts convene to gain insight from industry leaders, connect with their peers, discover engineering solutions/advancements, and make valuable business development connections with current and potential customers.

Over two days, over 330 attendees were treated to 21 presentations within 9 sessions covering fuel line developments, OEM perspectives, PHEV fuel tanks, tank systems, vehicle performance, simulation and vapor emission control. Presentation highlights included:

  • Supplier Keynote – Driving the Future – Jörg Rautenstrauch, President and CEO, Kautex Textron (Germany)
  • Latest Fuel System for new RAV4 – Takuya Tadokoro, Assistant Manager, Toyota Motor Corporation (Japan)
  • The Science of Influence and Persuasion – Utilizing Hard Science for Soft Skills – Dil Sidhu, Chief Content Officer, Coursera (U.S.A.)

Our 2019 conference bustled with activity and impactful conversations carried on throughout the entire event. Breakout networking sessions, a full exhibit hall, and a relaxed evening reception promoted the exchange of ideas and helped set the stage for future meetings, discussions and business collaborations.

ITB’s next fuel systems conferences are currently being organized and opportunities to present, sponsor and/or exhibit are available. Do not miss your opportunity showcase your company and promote your engineering developments.
