Manufacturing Leaders’ Summit EMEA Online mirrors the format of our established and successful face-to-face conference, featuring a combination of Plenary and Discussion Room sessions.

Our Plenary sessions bring together all attendees in a single virtual room – concentrating the event’s focus on a series of high-profile content sessions. These content sessions include presentations from our keynote speakers, short & snappy “Five-Minute Ideas”, as well as expertly moderated panel discussions. Each Plenary session will be accompanied by Q&A from the audience, allowing you to ask follow-up questions.

Periodically during the conference the audience will split into three virtual Discussion Rooms, for a 40-minute interactive Q&A, hosted by a leading manufacturer and a technology expert. Each Discussion Room is dedicated to a specific topic, and you can choose the ones that are most relevant to you. In each session, you’ll hear insights from both of your co-hosts before an extended, moderated Q&A using questions submitted in advance, and live on the day.
