The manufacturing sector has experienced a number of challenges and disruptions in recent years, from the global pandemic to supply chain issues and inflation. At the same time, the need to remain sustainable is also growing within the industry.

As the 'China +1' strategy takes off, firms are moving some capacity to the ASEAN region, making it the new production hub. ASEAN is an attractive region for manufacturers due to its geographic, regulatory, economic and demographic advantages. Flexibility, supply chain resiliency, increased productivity and workforce transformation are among the emerging business imperatives for manufacturers today.

The two-day conference will invite speakers from global institutions, key manufacturers, solution providers, and government agencies to share insights on technology trends on the future of manufacturing, while either regionalizing or localizing this trends to fit the region’s and Malaysia’s manufacturing capability. The planned Deep Dive sessions will offer in-depth discussions on selected key technology trends for the future of manufacturing.
