Summit Introduction

Welcome to the 9th edition of the Global Smart Manufacturing Summit, an event that continues to be at the forefront of digital transformation and innovation within the manufacturing industry. Building upon the success and insights gained from previous editions, this year’s summit promises to be an even more significant milestone in the journey towards smarter, more efficient, and more sustainable manufacturing processes.

In a world where technology is evolving at an unprecedented pace, the manufacturing landscape is continually reshaped by advancements in digital technology, automation, and Industry 4.0. The 9th edition of our summit is dedicated to exploring the full scope of these transformative forces, providing a comprehensive platform for industry leaders, experts, and visionaries to converge, collaborate, and chart the course for the future.

As emphasized in the previous text, our approach remains people-centric, adaptable, data-driven, and technologically sound.

Real-time data, sophisticated analytics, and innovative strategies are once again the focal points of our discussions, as they continue to shape the industrial and smart manufacturing landscape.

Join us for an exceptional lineup of case study presentations, expert talks, panel discussions, and instructive masterclasses led by a diverse range of industry professionals.

Reviews From Our Past Events

Testimonials From Previous Attendees


"I had the pleasure and the privilege to chair and speak at the “Global Finance 4.0 and Finance Transformation Summit” organized by Conferenzia World in Berlin, 9-10 November 2023. Congratulations! All the ingredients to ensure a successful conference were in place. The selection of relevant and sometimes disruptive topics, the flow during the 2 days with a smart mix of experienced practitioners and insightful analysts and consultants as keynote speakers and panelists made the program quite rich and attractive from the very start. A good mix of active and lively attendees from diverse countries and industries contributed to the depth and breath of the exchanges. The reasonable size of the audience allowed for a more intimate networking during the breaks. Not to forget the Berlin location which allowed for some refreshing sightseeing in this city always in transformation also! Two days well spent and lots of learnings to bring back to the French and EMEA CFO community which I chair and facilitate for the Digital Transformation, Shared Services and Outsourcing and Artificial Intelligence topics."

"I was very pleased to be able to show case many of the offerings Lonza has to offer and it was good to have so many questions after the presentation and also after the conference ended. I guess it is always a good sign if a topic receives further interest over the course of the event. Many thanks for your organization of the event and for inviting Lonza to share its broad range of Development Technologies approaches and experience in speeding time from Development to Clinic. I too learned a lot from the other presentations on the day."

Testimonials From Previous Attendees


"I enjoyed the summit as I learnt a lot about current CX and Digital Transformation challenges. Great minds came together to discuss our experience about People-Oriented CX. It is really hard to change processes and priorities in organizations even though there are clear data-driven reasons and explanations. I was amused to see how companies from different verticals – such as theme parks, retail stores or FMCG brands – approach CX and what initiatives they have to learn more about customer needs. Neticle has an important role in driving this shift for clients - it takes time and CX managers need partners and support from the other departments as well. Though measurement and KPIs are getting more and more standardized, the meaning behind the ratings, so the customer verbatim management is still a problem to solve. It is not sustainable to read and process hundreds or thousands of text units one by one, so automation is a must-have now. I personally enjoyed being on stage and sharing my thoughts with more than 100 CX-engaged professionals. It's been a unique opportunity to start meaningful discussions about text analytics in the field of CX and digital transformation. All participants were highly experienced, open-minded, aiming to learn from the others."
