Advanced Engineering

This time, we amplify our B2B Forum by positioning it next to the Advanced Engineering fair.
Smart industry is all about advanced engineering and it becomes pervasive in all application domains: the synergies are clear.

You benefit from the presence of companies in aerospace, advanced materials, automotive, smart production, and other areas. Ideal to broaden your horizon and get extra interaction. Top up your day with some insights from the conference and join your colleagues at the exquisite closing drink. The perfect end of a successful day!

Our B2B Forum runs in parallel with the first day of Advanced Engineering, while on the second day of the fair, DSP Valley hosts a workshop on Smart Mobility!
