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

The Auto Industry is facing the greatest challenge it has seen for nearly 50 years. The move to a future of Autonomy, Connectivity and Electrification, along with unprecedented market changes, cost pressures and complexity, means the world of Automotive Acoustics has never been more exciting and challenging. The need to be more efficient. more complex, lighter, cheaper, better, faster, having a larger range, better emissions and economy, presents challenges to us as engineers 'not faced before'. The need to share learning, develop technologies and approached has never been more important.

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

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 - NVH Forum, on 25th and 26th of September 2018, at the National Conference Centre, Birmingham, UK.

Our selective participant field, with decision makers, heads of departments, senior experts from international companies, NVH suppliers, prestigious research institutions and the largest representation of OEMs will bring together the latest acoustics 'State of the Art' 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 Centre in Gaydon with a guided tour of the Full Vehicle NVH Simulator, Jaguar Land Rover Test Laboratories and 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 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 psycho-acoustics as well as lightweight materials for noise control, among many other topics.

We look forward to welcoming you in Birmingham to make this event another great success in the global automotive engineering calendar!

Kind regards,
