Reflecting its continued expansion and development into an All-Ireland ‘must-attend’ annual event, the National Manufacturing & Supply Chain Conference & Exhibition has switched to a larger and more conveniently placed venue, moving from the Aviva Stadium in Dublin’s city centre to the Citywest Hotel, Ireland’s premier conference venue, located on the outskirts of the capital.

Designed with the objective of connecting key stakeholders across the full spectrum of Irish manufacturing, including the food, pharmaceutical, medical, chemical, life sciences and electronics manufacturing sectors, the third National Manufacturing & Supply Chain Conference & Exhibition will be held on Tuesday, January 26th, 2016.

The Conference is held in conjunction with an Exhibition of the latest processing and supply chain technology available to Irish industry.

National Forum

The National Manufacturing & Supply Chain Conference & Exhibition will provide a forum for manufacturers, both small and large, from across Ireland – North and South – to gather to discuss pressing issues facing Irish industry and to challenge political decision makers to deliver a business environment suitable for competing globally. The one-day event is expected to attract over 2,000 delegates with 100 exhibitors offering over 2,000 products and services.

Now in its third year, the event will be of interest to senior management, established practicing engineers and researchers together with those at a much earlier stage in their careers. To date, delegates have registered from leading companies within the food, pharmaceutical, medical, chemical, electronics, engineering and general production and processing sectors.

‘Creating an Innovative Manufacturing & Supply Chain Eco-System’

The theme of the 2016 event is ‘Creating an Innovative Manufacturing & Supply Chain Eco-System’ and an impressive line-up of speakers from manufacturing, academia and government agencies will explore the key problems, challenges and opportunities facing Irish industry.

A list of 75 speakers is currently being compiled along with the various free workshops and 20 supporting associations. The speakers at the Conference are being carefully selected from senior management within Irish industry and academia, who have a successful track record of delivering quantifiable results in sustainable manufacturing and throughout the supply chain, and who can offer delegates a clear pathway to enhancing competitiveness and innovation.

NorthernFoodsSoupCookingThe 3rd National Manufacturing & Supply Chain Conference will address key issues facing key decision makers throughout Ireland’s manufacturing industry. Manufacturing competitiveness has been identified as one of the key research priorities for future policy in Ireland. There is an emphasis on the key players in Ireland to collaborate with government agencies and academia to improve our competitiveness by increasing investment in R&D. Lean manufacturing, increased automation, supply chain optimization, up-skilling and te-training are all paramount to achieving a sustainable and innovative manufacturing sector in Ireland.

 

The City West Hotel

The Citywest Hotel complex with its easy access and free car parking is strategically placed to host All-Ireland events of this nature. The Citywest Hotel not only incorporates Ireland’s largest Convention, Exhibition & Events Centre but is conveniently located for ease of access to all delegates and visitors travelling nationally or internationally. Located on the N7, just off the M50, the venue is a 25 minute drive from both Dublin City Centre and Dublin International Airport. The complex also has the advantage of having a LUAS (light rail network) Stop adjacent to the gates of Citywest Hotel. This network provides the perfect transport infrastructure to deliver delegates and guests from the heart of Dublin City to the hotel.

Networking Opportunity

The National Manufacturing & Supply Chain Conference & Exhibition 2016 will provide an ideal forum for meeting Government agencies and supporting associations, and gaining free advice from experts. It will also provide networking zones to connect buyers and suppliers.

The layout of the Conference & Exhibition is intended to maximise the opportunity for colleagues in the food, beverage, pharmaceutical, medical, chemical, electronics and general production and processing industries to network and make new contacts.

Delegates attending the conference will be offered the opportunity to:

* gain industry insights to help their business plan ahead;

* share good practice and learn from each other’s experience;

* connect with senior business leaders to find new business opportunities;

* meet with key technology providers in the dedicated exhibition area.

Manufacturing firms source over €15 billion of materials and services from Irish-based suppliers annually. Although Ireland is home to a number of large scale global players almost 95% of manufacturing firms employ less than 50 people. Indeed, this diversity is what makes the National Manufacturing & Supply Chain Conference & Exhibition such a distinctive event.
