North American International Powertrain Conference (NAIPC) 2020 Cancelled

Due to concerns around the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, SAE International has made the difficult decision to cancel the North American International Powertrain Conference (NAIPC), originally scheduled for September 16-18, 2020, in Chicago, Illinois. Before making this decision, we extensively monitored and evaluated health directives from governmental and international health authorities, government- and corporate-imposed travel restrictions, and distancing and gathering directives and recommendations. We remain firmly committed to prioritizing the health and safety of our speakers, customers, partners and staff who are attending our events, and apologize for any inconvenience this cancellation has caused.

Join the Premier Powertrain Leadership Forum Focused on the North American Market

Aggressive regulations in fuel economy and emissions, new paradigms in technology, and customer expectations are facing the industry and creating tremendous uncertainty. The North American International Powertrain Conference (NAIPC) will feature compelling keynotes and sessions exploring customer perspectives, market forces affecting the powertrain business, and the impacts of new technology options and energy sources.

An invitation-only event planned by the Executive Leadership Team composed of senior-level powertrain executives in the automotive industry, NAIPC provides a stimulating and unparalleled program—developed by industry leaders, for industry leaders—as well as a unique opportunity to network with your peer executives from OEM and supplier companies.

Featuring Chatham House Rule, the conference provides exclusive access to speakers and presentations not published or discussed together in any other forum. All speakers and topics are peer-selected to provide informative but challenging points of view, with the goal of addressing not only the most pertinent and current powertrain issues, but also future challenges such as:

  • Powertrain technology
  • Transition from ICEs to EVs
  • Hybridization
  • Autonomous vehicles
  • Energy sources

The sharing of lessons learned, both from successes and failures, are valuable takeaways for executives pursuing lucrative business opportunities in the North American marketplace and may only be obtained by attending NAIPC.
