With the support of Dubai Exports, the export promotion agency of Dubai Economy, the Future Manufacturing & Trade Summit will be held on 6th and 7th November, 2017, at Jumeirah Emirates Tower in Dubai.

The two-day summit is in line with the Dubai Industrial Strategy to transform the emirate into a global platform for knowledge-based, sustainable and innovation-focused businesses. Earlier called the GCC Manufacturing Excellence and Technology Summit, the event presents a unique platform to discuss future trends in manufacturing excellence and key strategies to boost trade and economic development.

Across two days, over 40 international and regional industry experts will deliver keynote sessions, participate in panel discussions, and present case studies on shaping the future of the manufacturing and trade industry in the region. The current trend that is revolutionizing the manufacturing industry is Industry 4.0 or Industrial Internet of Things.

“A competitive manufacturing industry complete with robust infrastructure and innovative technologies is integral to Dubai, and the UAE in general, achieving its full potential as an exports and re-exports hub. The Future Manufacturing & Trade Summit 2017 is hence well-aligned to Dubai’s growth strategy and the UAE’s ongoing preparations to be part of the fourth industrial revolution,” commented Engineer Saed Al Awadi, CEO of Dubai Exports.

At the summit, the topic ‘Industry 4.0 – Delivering Excellence in Manufacturing through IoT’ will be delivered by Dr. Michaela Colla, Director of Industry 4.0, Volkswagen, Germany, who stated, “The fourth industrial revolution, or Industry 4.0, describes the real-time and intelligent connection of people, objects, systems and platforms. It opens up new possibilities in all areas of life. Our approach is the Cross-Functional Industry 4.0. The primary focus here is not the implementation of standalone solutions.”

“The goal is rather to transform the entire value chain of the company and to achieve integrated as well as globally networked processes. For this purpose, a cross-functional and cross-brand platform is designed for our partners in the value network, which facilitates data exchange and data analysis and opens up new possibilities. This will create a data-driven value-added network, which will act more efficiently, flexibly and autonomously,” she added.

Brad Hariharan, Regional Director, Expotrade Middle East, organizers of the Future Manufacturing & Trade Summit 2017, added, “We are honored to have the support of Dubai Exports for the upcoming edition of the summit. The UAE is on the cusp of change and a renewed focus on the manufacturing and trade sectors will significantly contribute to the economic growth of this country. We are grateful to Dubai Exports for their continued support and valuable guidance in shaping the event program.”
