Usually every 3 years, the large engine industry meets during the CIMAC World Congress. Due to COVID-19, the congress had to be postponed from 2022 to 2023. Now, in exactly one year, the waiting will be over, and the Congress will begin in Busan. 

“The CIMAC Congress is a unique opportunity to keep up to date with what is happening in the internal combustion engine industry. It is the place where experts from all over the world meet, gather information, discuss latest developments with each other, look for solutions and jointly define standards”, says Christoph Rofka (ABB Turbo Systems), CIMAC Vice President Communication. “We all were very disappointed when we had to postpone the Congress last year, but there was no alternative. As we all know, a lot has happened in the meantime. The challenging questions that the industry must answer have not become fewer, and they are not easier to answer. The war in Ukraine has once again turned many things we took for granted upside down”, Rofka explains and continues: “Today, trustful exchange and international cooperation are maybe more important than ever before. When it comes to internal combustion engines, the CIMAC congress is the right place for this”. 

Next year in Busan, the Congress will already be held for the 30th time. An impressive success story, as becomes obvious when looking at the number of participants: More than 800 visitors, exhibitors, and speakers from all parts of the world came to Vancouver in 2019, as many are expected in Busan. From June 12 to 16, 2023, the city will host them all: Engine manufacturers, component suppliers, universities & research institutes, oil companies, shipping experts, powerplant operators, classification societies, railway and locomotive companies, legislators and many other.
