#GMIS2020 VIRTUAL EDITION

GLOCALISATION : TOWARDS INCLUSIVE AND SUSTAINABLE GLOBAL VALUE CHAINS

Digital Series: June 30 - August 25, 2020
Virtual Summit: September 4-5, 2020

GMIS has gone Digital – the new format will host a sequence of weekly Digital Series in the lead up to the full-day Virtual Summit

#GMISGoesDigital

#GMIS2020 is set to virtually gather, for the very first time, a cross-section of thought-leaders from public and private sectors, academia, and NGOs, developing and developed countries, to discuss, debate, and shape the future of manufacturing.

Building on the theme of #GMIS2020 – Glocalisation: Towards Sustainable and Inclusive Global Value Chains – which was originally scheduled to take place alongside Hannover Messe in April 2020, we have formulated a fresh, forward-looking agenda for the #GMIS2020 Virtual Summit that will frame discussions within the context of the current landscape, exploring the longer-term implications on the manufacturing sector in light of the disruption caused to the global economy, while shedding light on possible technological solutions driven by the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Central to discussions at #GMIS2020 will be the exploration of how the disruption will lead to the transformation of global value chains (GVCs), a phenomenon that will have lasting implications on the manufacturing and production ecosystem.

 

Digital Series

 

In the lead up to the Virtual Summit, GMIS will host a sequence of Digital Series made up of webinars focused on exploring a new era of ‘digital restoration’ – one where Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) technologies can be utilised as a force to restore many parts of daily life, present solutions to jumpstart economies, rebuild global value chains and revive the manufacturing sector while maintaining the discipline of social distancing.

  • How are leaders repurposing our economies to deal with a post-crisis era
  • 4IR for a more resilient manufacturing sector?
  • Glocalisation: from global to local?
  • The Policymakers’ Challenge: navigating through a recession
  • Restoring prosperity in a post-pandemic world
  • Rise of the machines: robots in a post-pandemic world<

GMIS Connect is the Global Manufacturing and Industrialisation Summit’s international roadshow programme.

Strategically held in some of the world’s leading manufacturing hubs, GMIS Connect is the starting point in engaging the local manufacturing community with our global partners to discuss trends, opportunities and challenges brought by the fourth industrial revolution. By bringing together governments, local and international manufacturers, start-ups and SMEs, NGOs and academia, the roadshows are a key component in gathering insights and shaping the discussions for the next Global Manufacturing and Industrialisation Summit.
