The commitment with a sector in continuous innovation

Digital Transformation is the best opportunity to boost competitiveness and relocate the industry

With the advent of digital technologies in industry, we are now facing a crucial moment of transformation in the industrial sector.

Society increasingly requires services and products with greater added value. Products that incorporate and integrate advanced functions and services are even more complex. Products that can connect with different devices from any place at any time and that can share information in real-time.

The manufacturing methods and techniques need to adapt to this new paradigm which eventually forces enterprises to incorporate highly advanced equipment and develop innovative manufacturing systems as well as integrate various innovative solutions such as Artificial Intelligence, Additive Manufacturing 3D, Connected Factory, Industrial Cloud or Internet of Things (IoT) among many others.


14% of the industrial sector will increase automation

Industrial productivity will increase 10% with the implementation of technologies such as Digital Twin

Global industrial robot installations reached 376,000 units in 2020, with a forecast growth of 1.7 million industrial robots installed worldwide by 2022

Robotics sales will growth up to 12% until 2022

40% of material used for additive manufacturing are metals

80% of executives consider cybersecurity a high priority

Artificial Intelligence technologies will rise up to 35% its penetration in the industry

90% of the organizations will have defined KPIs to measure the success of your IoT projects in 2020

€49.300 Millions will be invested on IT

To this end, Advanced Factories brings together the most innovative companies in industrial automation, robotics, machine-tool and digital manufacturing, along with all the technologies that are driving reindustrialization, improving industrial competitiveness and, ultimately, providing lower costs of manufacturing and new business models.


Advanced Factories is the annual Summit on industrial innovation. A platform to present only the latest innovations in Industrial Automation equipment together with technologies that emerge from Industry 4.0


Together with the largest European congress on industrial innovation, the Industry 4.0 Congress, whose international speakers and experts give the keys to implement new business models and deepen the technological trends leading to the Advanced Industry.


A must-attend event for all companies engaged in machine-tool, industrial automation, cloud and artificial intelligence among others, where to get the highest return versus the investment that no other fair can offer, recognised as a reference in the industry sector. We invite you to be its protagonist and to boost your sales.
