The 2022 National Manufacturing Conference & Exhibition will be held over two days – on 25th and 26th of May – at the Citywest Convention Centre in Dublin. Incorporating a comprehensive conference programme and an extensive exhibition area displaying the latest technological solutions and business services available, the National Manufacturing and Supply Chain Conference & Exhibition is the largest event of its kind in Ireland.

Currently in its ninth year, the National Manufacturing & Supply Chain Conference & Exhibition serves as a national forum for manufacturers and operators involved throughout the associated supply chains from across Ireland – North and South – to gather to discuss pressing issues facing Irish industry. It is now firmly established as an All-Ireland ‘must-attend’ annual event, which successfully connects key stakeholders across the full spectrum of Irish manufacturing, including the food, drink, pharmaceutical, medical, chemical, life sciences and electronics sectors.

The National Manufacturing & Supply Chain Conference & Exhibition is designed to reflect the crucial importance of manufacturing to the Irish economy. Employing over 250,000 people, the manufacturing industry accounts for 32% of Ireland’s GDP – significantly higher than the European average of 15% and Germany at 21%. Manufacturing also plays a key role in helping to redress the regional imbalance in the Irish economy with more than 80% of operations based outside of Dublin.

Challenges

Irish manufacturers are currently facing serious challenges due to disruption to supply chains and markets caused by Brexit, the Russian invasion of Ukraine and soaring energy, transport and raw materials costs. Similarly, the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way businesses have had to operate. Indeed, theses crises may well accelerate the adoption of new technologies and techniques within the workplace.

The Irish manufacturing industry and its associated supply chain are also facing the major challenge of adapting to the disruptive changes generated by the digital revolution and the ‘Fourth Industrial Revolution’ (Industry 4.0). A new wave of advanced technologies is transforming the manufacturing landscape. These technologies include AI (Artificial Intelligence), IoT (Internet of Things), Cloud Computing, Digital Fabrication (including 3D printing), Big Data Capture, Advanced Automated and Autonomous Systems and Collaborative Robotics.

This upheaval is creating both obstacles and opportunities for manufacturers and their supply chain operators, who must evolve accordingly by adopting new technologies and skill sets.

The 2022 National Manufacturing & Supply Chain Conference & Exhibition will highlight the key trends and challenges facing the industry, while also offering practical solutions, as well as showcasing the latest innovations, developments in best practice and new technological advances.

Comprehensive Conference Programme

The organiser of 2022 National Manufacturing & Supply Chain Conference & Exhibition, Dublin-based Premier Publishing & Events, is assembling an impressive line-up of manufacturing leaders, academics and government agencies who will engage in a stimulating blend of key note addresses and debates. The event will also feature an extensive exhibition showcasing the latest technological solutions and business services.

Visitors interested in improving the performance of their business can listen to case studies and technical presentations from leading global and local manufacturing experts, and meet with providers of cutting edge technology.

Co-located Events

A distinctive feature of the National Manufacturing & Supply Chain Conference & Exhibition is that it incorporates several complementary events – all under one roof. The co-located events in 2022 will cover sectors including: Automation & Robotics; IOT & Industry 4.0; 3 D Printing; Medtech & Biotech; Pharmaceuticals & Life Sciences; Lean Productivity & Continuous Improvement; Electronics Manufacturing; Procurement; Supply Chain & Logistics; and Sustainability.
