At the summit, issues such as these will be discussed in open forum round-table sessions, as well as by leading professionals throughout the conference programme.


Organisational change in today's business world requires a change or adaptation of technology . This event will provide all attendees with an unbiased view of enabling technologies that will nurture growth in both margin and efficiency.

Cultural issues can be significant hurdles when implementing change within an organization; in manufacturing the issues are more apparent. Training is a contributing factor to quality, efficiency and change management. However, this is a dynamic concept that requires continuous re-assessment to ensure that the means and human capital are available to meet corporate objectives.


Innovation is a key theme running throughout the event. It is the goal at World Trade to ensure that access is made available to the most up to date and innovative concepts and technologies in the manufacturing world. Every presentation and discussion will feature many valuable perspectives to provide the tools necessary to make the most informed choices for the manufacturing function.
