Why you should come?

Although Industry 4.0 has become a widely used term, people still mean various things by it. There is no unified perception concerning its necessity, its purpose, or the methodology of its implementation. All experts agree, however, that those who do not take measures to introduce it may eventually fall behind the competition.

We also hear a lot about how Industry 4.0 is about robots, while the efficiency of processes is an aspect less talked about. It is also not entirely clear whether it is a one-off upgrade or part of ongoing development, or what the recommended mode of implementation is at various levels of development and economies of scale. The programme of our conference will deal with the above topics based on case studies and business experiences.

Portfolio and the Association of the Hungarian Automotive Industry (MAGE)  have been organising joint events since 2015, and this is the second year the Industry 4.0 conference will be part of the AUTOMOTIVE HUNGARY international trade show for car industry suppliers. Our goal this year remains the same: to present the best practices and innovations of the sector to the entire Hungarian manufacturing industry, as well as to highlight the best domestic industrial digitalisation projects and examples.
