29 November - 10 am CET - Brussels

TusPark Belgium and the Flanders-China Chamber of Commerce are pleased to invite you to a hybrid event (In-person & Online) on the business-essential areas of automation and digital manufacturing. The event will take place on November 29, 2022, at 10:00 am CET at the TusPark Brussels Innovation Center (Boulevard Louis Schmidt 29, 1040 Etterbeek, Brussels). This activity will be invaluable for all companies thinking about how best to harness the power of smart manufacturing in their business operations.

Over the past three decades, the rise of China’s manufacturing capability has been phenomenal. Chinese manufacturers are world-leading in many industries. This transformation has been brought about by a combination of leading research and development and competitive labour. However, we are at a transition where digitization will increasingly determine the strength of manufacturing worldwide. Among several benefits, intelligent manufacturing has generated huge benefits in quality, safety, efficiency and environmental protection.

This event aims to: encourage those attending to exchange information, build networks and partnerships, and explore the potential for trade and investment opportunities. The future of business lies in automation and digitization, which require businesses to forge links to reap the full benefits of smart manufacturing.

This seminar will be of great value to those needing to know more about how digitization is transforming manufacturing, from both the Chinese and European perspectives. You will hear from industry experts and learn how they have incorporated digitization into their business operations. There will be presentations by start-ups and SMEs, who are driving smart manufacturing. The seminar will also highlight the most important lessons that we have learned and how to avoid making mistakes in future.

Six specially selected companies will showcase their technologies, products and services, as well as discussing industry trends and how best to explore partnerships.
