The Motor Summit is an established international conference that brings together international experts, researchers, manufacturers and industrial users with representatives from governments and educational institutions. It provides a global platform for the direct exchange of knowledge and information on the latest developments in efficient electric motor driven systems.

Main topics 2020:

Standards | Ecodesign | Digitalisation | Fan efficiency | Market overview | Technology developments | Electromobility | Air compressors

The Motor Summit 2020 International (18/19 November) will have a premiere. Due to the current global situation, no physical event will take place this year. Instead, the event will be broadcast via livestream over the internet. All participants will have exclusive access to the videos and slides of the presentations from the day of the event.

This allows all participants to move freely between 5 individual areas during the whole event.

Reception | Stage | Sessions | Network | Expo
