Over the past decade new technologies have emerged aiming to increase efficiency in the manufacturing process, from robotics and new materials to the use of data analytics, artificial intelligence and machine learning.

For many small and medium sized manufacturers navigating through this world of new technologies is overwhelming. Spotting opportunities, acquiring accurate information, finding time and money are all challenges with implementing new hardware and processes.

This event will introduce government funding programs and hand-picked vendor platforms to help you identify and fund investments, stay up-to-date and remain competitive. You will also be introduced to new local capabilities like the Digital Twinning Lab and Virtual Reality Cave at IBLS. Many local partners and government agencies will be in attendance to share their support capabilities and meet one-on-one with you.

A light breakfast and lunch will be included.


WHO should attend?

  • Leaders and decision makers (business and technical) at small and medium sized manufacturers in the automobile supply chain.
  • Firms that are studying new technologies or already started implementing new technologies.
  • Firms that are looking for programs that help them fund investments in technology that make them more competitive in the automobile industry.
  • Firms that work with manufacturers in the supply chain such as logistics providers, are also welcome.
