Identifying markets Finding exclusive access. Becoming established.

Creating a niche in the global market requires intensive preparations. The Automotive Cluster examines international markets and informs its partners about global opportunities. To do this, it exploits its good connections to OEMs, systems suppliers and global cluster initiatives and automotive networks.

Supplier innovation days

Meet developers, buyers and decision-makers

By taking part in supplier innovation days organised by the Upper Austrian Automotive Cluster you take the chance to present the particular advantages of your innovations, technologies and processes direct to the customer in one day. Developers, buyers and innovation managers from various levels visit your fair stand, which has already been prepared for you at the venue. The Automotive Cluster team guarantees professional preparation and follow-up measures.


We go the extra mile for you.

The supplier innovation days are an initiative of the Upper Austrian Automotive Cluster which holds them in close consultation with the manufacturers and tier one suppliers. During this process, areas of innovation are identified that are of strategic interest to the potential host and for which innovative companies from Austria are subsequently nominated. Depending on the host’s wishes, feedback meetings are held in various formats, on the one hand to mobilise the relevant people and departments at OEM/T1 and on the other to ensure that a potential demand, and consequently sales opportunities, exist for the solutions offered by the partner companies.


Presentation through cooperation

Whereas at trade fairs visitors from a range of customers come over several days, the supplier innovation days focus on one host at a time who prepares himself accordingly and is at the disposal of an exclusive group of participants. On the day before, all you need to do is install your exhibits, put up posters etc. at the stand that has already been prepared for you. You can then have discussions with industry colleagues at the dinner for all the exhibitors.

On the day itself, you provide information to interested visitors from the development and sales fields at your stand and make valuable contacts. Depending on the overall format of the supplier innovation days, the Automotive Cluster may give previously announced VIP groups a tour of the exhibition, a business brunch with decision-makers may be held, and/or there may be the opportunity to present innovations in a nearby seminar room.

Roadmap to X

In a cooperation project called Roadmap to X, the Automotive Cluster aims to encourage a model that would see several companies enter the market together. More detailed information is available here.
