Many top executives believe that in the next five years we will see more change than the automotive industry has seen in the past 50 years. Irreversible megatrends will lead to a disruption of the global automotive industry.

  • What defines mobility of tomorrow? What influencing factors exist?
  • How will the interior of the future change in context of the new mobility world?
  • What role plays the interior supply chain to meet changing consumer needs?
  • How will the physical materials and surfaces evolve?
  • What role will leather play in the future?

Stahl has ventured new paths to find answers to pressing questions. In co-operation with the Creative Think Tank and Mobility Lab Rinspeed, Stahl has created the “3rd living space of the future” in the path-breaking urban mobility concept “Oasis”, unveiled at CES Las Vegas earlier this year.

In its presentation, Stahl will introduce the philosophy of the concept car, comment on relevant interior trends and share an insight into the success-factors Stahl has earmarked during this demanding exercise to future-proof its business for the decade to come.

Stefan Buri is leading the global marketing for automotive of the company Stahl Holdings bv. In this newly established role in 2014, Stefan builds on Stahl´s position as world-market leader in process chemicals and strengthens its presence as the leading surfaces-expert for car interior materials. With a distinguished approach, Stahl addresses the different needs along the value chain, from OEMs, Tier-1 to its direct customer base – the materials manufacturers on Tier2 level.
