We are excited to announce the 2nd Annual Smart Manufacturing Summit that will take place on 6-7 April 2017 in Prague, Czech Republic.

Last year’s summit was a huge success with 92% of participants rating the event good to excellent and 88% recommending the event to a colleague. This year we have managed to secure key speakers from influential companies within the industry.

This summit will provide a platform for the key decision makers of the manufacturing industry in order to discuss new technologies, manufacturing automation, expansion of robotics and intelligence in manufacturing.

It will give a great chance to exchange knowledge and ideas on how the use of advances in manufacturing can increase productivity, improve quality and reduce costs and discuss current challenges and dynamics of this field.

The purpose of the summit is to create a perfect atmosphere conducive to developing strategies for future success and achieving real results as well as active networking.

We have gathered top experts in order to gain experienced, accurate and noteworthy case studies within the smart manufacturing industry.
