ELIV MarketPlace 2022

The ELIV MarketPlace Baden-Baden (long known as "Baden-Baden Spezial") has been held every two years since 2004, alternating with the international VDI Electronics Congress ELIV. More than 450 experts meet here to learn about trends and developments in electronics in mobile applications.

Top topics presented in a technically profound and cross-sectoral manner

The ELIV Marketplace unites under its roof three top-class conferences: "E/E in passenger cars", "EE in commercial vehicles" and "E/E in mobile machines" and sees itself as a platform where methods and techniques of the current trends and top topics are presented in depth. To ensure that the event can live up to this claim, the three dedicated technical committees carefully evaluate topics and speakers.

As a long-standing member of the ELIV and ELIV-MarketPlace Passenger Cars committees, Dr.-Ing. Klaus Harms, Bosch Management Support GmbH, will be acting as chairman for the passenger car program for the first time. Dr.-Ing. Hans Welfers, formerly MAN, is the chairman of the Commercial Vehicles Program. Dipl.-Ing. Peter Hieronymus from CLAAS is the chairman of the Electrics / Electronics in Mobile Machines program. The program committee with proven experts from the electronics community is the key anchor of the congress program. The technical sponsorship is the responsibility of the VDI Vehicle and Traffic Engineering Association (FVT).
