Why you should come?

Portfolio and the Association of the Hungarian Automotive Industry (MAGE) have been organising successful car industry conferences for the past four years. We believe that the car industry is in the vanguard of digitalisation and technological developments and could set an example for other industries. The goal of our sixth joint conference is to present the best practices and innovations of the sector to the entire Hungarian manufacturing industry, as well as to highlight regional and domestic projects from other industries.

Our Sponsors

With the digitalisation of manufacturing processes, retooling production lines for a new product takes a fraction of the time, and the specifications of the manufactured parts and products can even be changed on the fly. Augmented reality devices used by employees can improve the efficiency of maintenance and production processes, while industrial internet systems and the data obtained from millions of sensors can decrease both downtime and the number of defective products. 
But it is not just manufacturing that is changing in this age of transition – new products, as well as platforms where customers can communicate their needs to manufacturers, are being born to efficiently service so-called mass customization. In addition to Industry 4.0 developments in the car industry, our programme will also include looking at case studies of the best domestic technology upgrades, as well as examples from other industries.
