MNE + Prototyping Expo (Belgium) @ Kortrijk Xpo
Feb 5 – Feb 6 all-day

MNE + Prototyping Expo
Belgium, Kortrijk
5-6 February 2020
Prototyping Xpo, the networking trade show for designing and prototyping industrial components and products, and MNE (Machineering Network Event) are combining their concepts, strengths and knowledge for the first time at Prototyping + MNE 2020. The two networking trade shows, both specialise in manufacturing technology. And now, they are about to make a quantum leap together as this marks the first milestone of the 4th Industrial Revolution, according to Industry 4.0’s strategic plan.
Digital manufacturing, mass customisation, as well as flexible and automated production have become standard as time to market is getting shorter and shorter. Departments such as engineering, R&D, production, assembly or maintenance are thus being forced to break away from silo thinking and act as one communicating horizontal organisation in the face of ever-changing market conditions, low stocks and limited series production for ever more demanding industrial customers. Industrial subcontractors do not only make more, but also help customers in their thinking and designing processes. Prototyping + MNE 2020 closes the circle for both visitors and exhibitors: “advanced prototyping + industrial production from A – Z”.

There´s more than 28 subject matter experts who’ll share case studies, implementation stories and their decision making processes with you. The IIoT 4.0 Summit is the meeting place to discuss your challenges with peers and technology experts who can help you de-risk your strategy and investments with their experiences.

Each day’s content has been carefully curated to ensure that you get clear insights and actionable information from early adopters and those in the midst of their digital transformation, providing you with the right tools to affect change on your own production line.

Content, sessions and speakers will be focused around these 8 themes:

  • Enabling digital transformation
  • Exploring future manufacturing
  • Industrial Automation – where to start
  • Connecting IIoT – beyond the sensor, into the cloud and edge.
  • Understanding how to innovate in manufacturing
  • Discovering the Smart Factory
  • Supply Chain and Logistics
  • Protecting Industrial Data

Manufacturing is crucial to the Australian economy, employing 900,000 workers, investing more than $4billion in to R&D and contributing over a $100 billion to the economy (according to ABS).

The digital transformation of manufacturing has never been more important to the sector. Attend and benchmark your efforts with global and local leaders, connect with your peers, discover strategies, technologies and partners that will ensure competitiveness and growth.
