Business Finland is launching a new Smart Manufacturing push into the German market with a focus on contacts and meetings with potential business partners and other stakeholders. Sign up for the project to seek out opportunities in Germany as a group!

We are offering this project – which will run until the end of 2023 – in collaboration with AHP International from Germany who have years of trade promotion experience in this domain, both at home and abroad. The market reach-out will take place in hybrid format, targeting both online contacts and meetings for the Finnish participants as well as physical networking activities for those interested at one or possibly two trade fairs. Motek (October) has a focus on automation intelligence for production & assembly while SPS (November) targets smart and digital automation.

Who should participate?

This project is intended for Finnish smart manufacturing suppliers for the manufacturing industries. This is a market entry and lead generation project. We expect the participants to be willing and committed to start market entry actions now since the project will come to an end at the end of 2023.

The registration is not financially binding. Any activities requiring fees will have a separate registration.

Note: The project only has a limited number of places which will be awarded on a first come first served basis.
