Brake Colloquium & Exhibition - 39th Annual

October 17 - 20, 2021 │ Orlando, Florida or Online & On-Demand

New Brake Technology. The Latest Standards Information. Criticality of Vehicle Architecture.

The Brake Colloquium & Exhibition program evolves as the braking industry does. Current hot topics include the effects powertrain system and driver assist systems for improved safety are having on the development strategy for the brake industry, showcasing the need for collaborative work to better understand the impacts of new drivetrain and advance safety systems on the brake duty cycle, the issue of brake dust and emissions growth, and more.

To spearhead the discussion on these issues, this year’s Bake technical program will feature presentation sessions, panels, tutorials, keynote presentations, and more – providing attendees the opportunity to exchange critical information with experts from OEMs and top suppliers.


Organizers are in the process of reviewing submitted manuscripts and presentations with the goal of providing you the most comprehensive look at the critical challenges and  solutions, as technology evolves.

Below is a tentative listing of topics under consideration. Final presentation selections will be complete by August 23, 2021.
