In an effort to assist automakers in meeting new, more stringent fuel economy standards and safety regulations, the North American steel industry is accelerating its work to provide affordable advanced high-strength steel (AHSS) solutions for vehicle mass reduction and performance improvements.

Great Designs in Steel is the premier forum for the latest trends and applications in automotive steel technologies. This multi-track program features technical presentations on new steel technologies including AHSS, automotive safety and manufacturing technologies.

The Steel Market Development Institute's (SMDI) automotive investing companies initiated this annual event to assist engineers in utilizing the latest steel technologies to design and build strong, affordable, fuel efficient and environmentally sustainable passenger cars, sport utility vehicles and light trucks.

The 2018 program will bring the North American steel industry engineers and automotive designers together with product and process engineers to discuss successful case histories and the latest trends in steel usage for vehicles on the road today.
