Industry 4.0 Congress

Congress for Industrial Parks Managers


Optimisation and Development of Business Parks

Advanced Factories will host a new edition of the Congress for Industrial Estate Managers. This is an activity hosted in the Industry 4.0 Congress in which we will have the participation of representatives of different industrial ecosystems in Spain in order to share the main difficulties encountered by each of them, and the most innovative solutions that have been implemented.


In this new edition, Advanced Factories reinforces the relevance and prominence of this forum, very necessary to boost the digital transformation of the industrial areas of our market, promoting the implementation of good mobility infrastructures for goods, high connectivity and good 5G connections for factories, improving technology transfer between the members of the industrial areas, or promoting collaboration and synergies between the companies that make up a PAE are the main challenges that industrial estate managers have to lead.


The National Congress of Industrial Estate Managers will count in 2024 with the participation of the Spanish Coordination of Business Parks – CEPE as co-organising entity.


Despite the fact that Industry 4.0 is clearly established in our factories, and digitalisation is embracing all areas of our lives, if we focus on the whole economic area that industrial parks represent, we can see that the vast majority of them still lack digitalisation and connectivity, and what is more, they offer enormous opportunities to create synergies and work collaboratively, thus approaching the era of Industry 5.0.


For all these reasons, until 5 February 2024, the congress organising committee is open to receive any candidature that brings new inspiring and disruptive ideas, and especially success stories and projects that inspire industrial estate managers by providing solutions for sustainability and competitiveness.
