Smart Manufacturing Conference ’22

After a successful first edition in 2021, Smart Manufacturing Conference (SMAFACC) will take place again. On Tuesday 20 September, the free conference on Smart Manufacturing will take place at Thor Central at Thor Park.

With the rapid evolution of technology, we want to know about the new techniques in automation and data exchange. With these new practical insights, you can immediately get to work in your own company.

The Smart Manufacturing Conference (SMAFACC) presents 9 speakers to touch upon different areas of Smart Manufacturing. They will present their own idea and perspective through a keynote or practical case. The event gives you the opportunity to network with other visitors and to gain knowledge to implement in your own company. To support this, several booths are open which also revolve around Smart Manufacturing.

Together with co-organisers YOUNG VOM, Stad Genk and partners VKW Limburg, VOKA Limburg and JONG VOKA Limburg, Thor Park presents the Smart Manufacturing Conference (SMAFACC) as a free event. The event is intended to bring you into contact with the various aspects of Smart Manufacturing in an accessible way. We ourselves attach great importance to giving companies the option of evolving along with and preparing for the future method of production.
