Welcome to the 4th International Forum Automotive Acoustics & Vibration- NVH 2018
Dear members of the Automotive Acoustics & Vibration – NVH Community,

Over the last three series of our International Forum on Automotive Acoustics & Vibration-NVH, representatives from more than 150 international companies and 20 countries experienced a new, networking-intensive conference format.

This year, in co-operation with one of the world’s leading manufacturer of luxury automobiles, Jaguar Land Rover, Internect Ltd. is hosting the 4th Automotive Acoustics & Vibration-ΝVH Forum, 25-26 September 2018 at the National Conference Center in Birmingham, UK.

Our selective participant field, with Decision Makers, Heads of Departments and Senior Experts from more than 20 OEMs and 80 suppliers & research institures benefited from a variety of interactive sessions, panel discussions, workshops, industry case studies and a selection of high quality presentations.

An exclusive visit to the Jaguar Land Rover Engineering Center in Gaydon with a guided tour to the Full Vehicle NVH Simulator, the Jaguar Land Rover Test Laboratory and the JLR driving dynamics simulator, followed by our networking evening get-together and dinner will round up this unique conference experience.
Don’t miss the opportunity to join the premier Automotive NVH Conference, the event with the largest OEM representation, the NVH meeting venue for automotive manufacturers and suppliers!
Gain insight into powertrain, chassis and body NVH engineering, active and passive NVH technologies, sound design for high performance EV-HEVs & autonomous vehicles, NVH simulation, testing & validation, aero-acoustics, sound branding and psychoacoustics as well as lightweight materials for noise control, amonng many other topics.
We look forward to welcoming you in Birmingham to make this event another success in the global automotive engineering calendar!
Kind regards,
