Sponsorship & Exhibition Opportunities

The Sponsorship and Exhibition Opportunities Prospectus for EuroBrake 2016 is available now. Since the first EuroBrake in 2012, the numbers of exhibitors and attendees have grown significantly, and EuroBrake is now the world's largest braking conference and exhibition. In 2015, almost 1,000 braking experts from industry and academia attended the conference, with almost 100 exhibitors from over 20 countries showcasing their products and services.

In 2016, EuroBrake will take place in Europe's largest conference venue, the MiCo, based in the heart of Milan, providing more companies the opportunity to exhibit and more delegates the chance to attend. 

Companies representing foundation braking or the application of braking technologies exhibit at EuroBrake, where product advances and specialist knowledge are on display. These range from friction materials, testing and engineering support, manufacturing equipment and raw materials, to EV and hybrid brake system technologies, electronics, components and systems. 

Exhibiting enables your company to grow its business base in a cost-effective way, giving you the chance to showcase your products, services and technical capabilities to hundreds of industry executives. You will be able to strengthen existing relationships whilst starting new ones, whilst networking at EuroBrake's many social functions. 

"The EuroBrake Conference and Exhibition is the most important meeting place for the world's friction materials and brake experts from R&D production."

Milan is Italy's second largest city and a thriving hub of culture and industry, located in the northern Lombardy region. Its many attractions include grand art collections, spectacular architecture and an internationally renowned design and fashion scene. 

Lombardy is an important manufacturing region for the automotive industry, with a number of factories in the area enjoying success on both a national and international scale. Milan boasts acclaimed engineering courses at the Politecnico di Milano, encouraging young engineers to continue contributing to the region's success after graduation. 

On the outskirts of the city, the famous Monza F1 racetrack has lived in the majestic surroundings of a royal park since 1922, making it one of the oldest racetracks in the world, as well as one of the fastest - Italians call it 'La Pista Magica', the magic track.
