From design to manufacturing | 27 & 28 march 2024

On Wednesday 27 and Thursday 28 March 2024, the event D2M, or Design to Manufacturing, will be held at Kortrijk Xpo. With the support of powering partners such as Howest Industrial Design Center, Agoria, Flanders Make and POM, the organization of industrialfairs (organizer of 5 Belgian technology fairs) is ready for a renewed edition.

Design to Manufacturing took place for the first time in 2022. The networking and demo event par excellence that brings together the entire manufacturing industry chain. The first time this event immediately attracted 1832 professionals from the design, manufacturing and mechanical engineering industries, along with 189 students from creative engineering programs.

The smart manufacturing industry must now digitally and smoothly interact with each other through all the key steps from design to production. By using innovative manufacturing and design techniques, the company can meet this requirement. From Design to Manufacturing is the solution to these challenges. It brings together a diversity of exhibitors offering solutions in different areas of the supply chain.

At the event, answers are provided in a cozy networking environment with a central "machinery demo zone." This provides a unique opportunity for exhibitors to give active demonstrations and offer visitors a hands-on experience with the latest technologies and processes.
