FISITA and Applus IDIADA announce two-year sponsor partnership for EuroBrake


FISITA, the international membership organization for the automotive and mobility systems engineering profession, today announces a commercial partnership with Applus IDIADA who will become the lead sponsor at EuroBrake 2019 and 2020.

Organized by FISITA, EuroBrake is the world’s largest annual technical conference and exhibition, dedicated to braking and friction technology. Applus IDIADA, which provides design, engineering, testing and homologation services to the automotive industry, will become the Diamond Sponsor at EuroBrake 2019 in Dresden, Germany and EuroBrake 2020 in Barcelona, Spain.

The leading sponsorship package provides Applus IDIADA the opportunity to host an Open Seminar for delegates at EuroBrake. In 2019, this session will focus on autonomous driving and its impact on braking systems, as well as overall business models outside of the automotive industry.

Chris Mason, FISITA CEO, said “Applus IDIADA are leading experts in brake engineering and testing, so I am thrilled to welcome them as our headline Diamond Sponsor at EuroBrake for the next two years. EuroBrake attendees will benefit from this fantastic partnership via a number of engagement and knowledge-sharing opportunities as Applus IDIADA deliver leading industry insight and technical information throughout the event.”

Carles Grasas, Applus IDIADA CEO, said: “Applus IDIADA is a proud member of FISITA, whom for over 60 years has significantly contributed to mobility engineering through the creation of an outstanding network that promotes safe and sustainable mobility solutions. At IDIADA, we greatly value knowledge-sharing opportunities, having participated in EuroBrake for several years as exhibitors and presenters of technical papers. 

“In 2019, we have taken a further step in enhancing this partnership by becoming Diamond Sponsors of the conference, and we will be continuing this into 2020, when EuroBrake will be held in Barcelona. We are very pleased with this partnership and believe that it will continue to support the efforts of FISITA in advancing the knowledge of the brake technology community.” 

Following seven years of growth, EuroBrake has become established as the world’s largest technical event of its kind, attended by more than 1,100 delegates, with a significant technical programme of 140 technical presentations and attracting 100 international organizations to the exhibition. EuroBrake 2019 returns to Dresden, Germany from 21–23 May 2019 and for the first time in Barcelona, Spain from 2-4 June 2020.
