Cars have changed in the last decade much more then it is seen by visual appearance. Push towards lower consumption and better emissions challenged the automakers to use sophisticated technologies to meet the standards and demands. Hybrid propulsion is now part of every car brand and in next five years the same step will be done towards pure electric propulsion. One of the realities of this paradigm shift is the increased reliance on the latest technology for diagnostics and repairs.

That is why Tecnological Conference on Maintenance of Motor Vehicles is so important. Special emphasizes will be put on car mechanics, electricity and electronics.


Overview of Technological conference


Technological conference is an annual meeting of vehicle mechanics, diagnostics, wholesalers, professors from technical schools and car specialists. As always, also this year the conference will be organized by ADEL technical team and Metron Institute. Novelty at this Conference will be VIP day on Friday afternoon that will be dedicated to direct contact between mechanics and suppliers.

The three day conference will take place from 17th till 19th of October 2014 in Smarjeske toplice in south eastern part of Slovenia (highway to Zagreb). Independent car mechanics and official services will be invited, so that we expect about 160 participants at the conference and good media coverage during press conference.


First day (Friday) is so called VIP day dedicated to sponsors when only about 50 customers will come in the afternoon to see the production of Adria motorhomes in Novo mesto. After we will gather at conference halls to join the “sponsors afternoon” and vine degustation. It is meant that during two hours customers will have the possibility to speak directly to representatives and technical staff at supplier’s stands. It will be followed by dinner and entertainment program.

Second day (Saturday) is dedicated to lectures taking place in the conference hall, followed by gala dinner and entertainment program.

Third day (Sunday) will host some lectures in the morning and continue with practical presentations. It will end with lunch at 14.00.

Besides professional work social part of the conference is also important as customers and suppliers meet during the informal part. When car specialists will be attending lectures, their family members will have the opportunity to enjoy the organized free-time activities.

The main content of 9th Technological Conference is Car maintenance in the future with emphasis on electric and electronic systems, injection and exhaust solutions to achieve EURO 6. These technologies include new materials, diagnostics, products, solutions, safety devices, regulations and standards that are going to appear in the near future or are already present in automobile technology.
