Materialica is an international trade fair of lightweight construction for new mobility, which takes place once a year in Munich. It is the only show of its kind in the world and has established itself internationally because lightweight design in many areas is becoming increasingly important to make products lighter, safer and more efficient, but also to reduce the use of natural resources and costs. The exhibition is divided into the areas of lightweight design, materials, surface engineering and testing and is aimed at development engineers, designers, engineers, product managers and buyers. This structure allows visitors the systematic search for domain-specific services as well as a comprehensive overview. Exhibitors meet customers, mainly from the industries of automotive, aerospace, engineering and sports and consumer goods looking for new ways and solutions. The fair takes place parallel to eCarTec, the leading international trade fair for hybrid and electric mobility and to sMove360°, the international trade fair for connected cars. All three exhibitions show the complete range of sustainable mobility starting with the use of intelligent lightweight design concepts and more efficient materials to the development of innovative urban mobility concepts.

On the whole the organisers welcomed on the 3 days of the fair, from 21. October to 23. October 2014, about 463 exhibitors from 28 countries and 11864 visitors from 56 countries on the Materialica in Munich.

The Materialica takes place annually, and therefore for the 19th time previsibly in October 2017 in Munich.
