About the summit

We are happy to announce the launch of the 4th Annual Smart Manufacturing Summit that will take place on 21-22 March 2019 in Barcelona, Spain. This summit is designed as a 2-track event (Robotics&Automation and Manufacturing Excellence) to provide a platform for the key decision makers of the manufacturing industry. Summit expert-speakers will discuss new technologies, manufacturing automation, expansion of robotics and operational excellence 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.

“Manufacturing is more than just putting parts together. It’s coming up with ideas, testing principles and perfecting the engineering, as well as final assembly”, James Dyson
