CTI Symposia – the international forum for exchanging experiences and opinions

The Car Training Institute (CTI) has long years of experience in holding highly regarded annual conferences for the automobile and supplier industry. The symposia cover all aspects of transmissions, hybrid and electric drives. In Europe, the International CTI Symposium takes place in Berlin every December; 2014 was the 13th event. Since 2007, industry representatives have also been meeting up every May at the CTI Symposium in the USA. In 2015, the CTI Symposium will be held in China for the fourth time.

CTI Symposia deliver annual updates on the latest developments in the field of automobile drive and transmission development. They offer a comprehensive lecture program with keynote speeches by high ranking company representatives, podium discussions on topical themes, and expert contributions on a wide range of topics relating to markets, strategies, and the development, optimization and production of efficient drives. The satellite exhibition ’Transmission Expo’ is the ideal platform for presenting new products and finding project and business partners. It is equally suitable for engineers or purchasing/sales representatives, and provides information and demonstrations of everything from individual components to entire systems, development tools and production technologies.

CTI Symposia – the industry meetings you can’t afford to miss

For newcomers and experts from other fields, CTI Symposia also offer introductory seminars on drive and alternative drive technology, ahead of the two-day main program.
The basics are explained in comfortably sized groups, making this an ideal point of entry for attendees from adjacent fields of transmission development, or those who simply wish to brush up on their knowledge.

In Berlin and the USA, participants can also compare the latest developments and technologies for themselves by road testing demonstration/series production vehicles supplied by carmakers, suppliers and engineering service providers. The test drives take place either on public roads (USA), or on a test track (Berlin).

In keeping with the international character of the symposia, simultaneous translations of lectures are available in Berlin (German/English) and China (English/Chinese).
