Ever strengthening and complex strategic alliances...OEM's with OEM's, OEM's with suppliers, and suppliers with suppliers...are a strong factor in today's global automotive industry. This year's theme: "Succeeding in the Alliance Game" set the tone for the largest OE service, parts and components exhibition in the world. More than 1,200 suppliers and manufacturers, (300+ from outside of North America), special features for OEM personnel, technical tours, and outstanding networking opportunities made the SAE 2001 World Congress a "can't miss" event for everyone in the automotive industry.
Concurrent with this prestigious exposition was an in-depth technical program containing more than 1,300 individual presentations. Five specialty conferences were held within the SAE World Congress:
- Emissions/Environmental Control
- Electronics/Intelligent Vehicles
