Moving towards the future!Moving towards the future!

The manufacturing industry has supported the evolution of mobility. As well as developing EVs, hydrogen vehicles, linear motor cars and drones as new sustainable, safe and convenient modes of mobility, the industry is today redefining the concept of “mobility” and considers not only as the means of transport, but also the move of information, energy, lifelines and other intangibles. In line with this evolution, the manufacturing industry has reached a major turning point today and is running towards the realisation of Industry 5.0.
This exhibition condenses all these elements and will be held in Aichi Prefecture, the world leading industrial manufacturing region. In addition, the organizer, GL events, will utilise the network of Global Industrie, one of Europe's largest industrial trade fairs, which is held in France every year, to involve not only the Japanese market but also the European market and present latest trends in manufacturing and mobility at a global level. SMART MANUFACTURING SUMMITs will gather all of actors to create the mobility of tomorrow.

Our History

The project started in June 2019, GL events Venues CEO Christophe Cizeron signed a Letter of Intent with the Governor of Aichi Prefecture, Hideaki Omura to launch an international industrial exhibition just before the opening of the Aichi Sky Expo. After overcoming obstacles related to the coronavirus pandemic, the project was restarted and we anounced the official kickoff at Global Industrie (Paris) on 17 May 2022, in the presence of the Governor of Aichi Prefecture. We are creating a brand new manufacturing event linking Japan and Europe through our various contents and international connections thanks to GL events, especially Global Industrie.
