Preview: EPHJ-EPMT-SMT – A Prerequisite for the High Precision Sector

The EPHJ-EPMT-SMT trade show, the international showcase for high precision technologies in the fields of watch-making and jewellery, medical technology and micro-technology, is the must-attend event for the presentation of products from these segments. The 2018 show preview sounds promising.

For 16 years, the EPHJ-EPMT-SMT has welcomed a global flagship of expertise in the high precision sector, including the machine segment, represented by a wealth of companies from the sector. 2017 saw the launch of a start-up “village”. Building on the success of that initiative, in 2018 the “village” will be expanded to become a veritable hub for European start-ups. “We hope to contribute to the emergence and development of young companies that are keenly focused on innovation and the value added they can bring to the different sectors present at the trade show”, explains Alexandre Catton, director of the trade show. A pitching space will be made available to these start-ups, which will be given a few minutes to present their innovation to a small and select audience.

The 2018 show will also have a more overtly female presence, with a “Women’s Day” on 13 June to showcase the role of women in the industry and give the floor to female company heads, industrial experts, managers or creative personnel who make an active contribution to the tech industry. In a somewhat masculine universe, it is important to hear feedback from women who are actively involved in the industry’s development, promotion and organization.

Another topic for discussion at the trade show’s famous round table events with the assistance of prominent personalities and industrialists: Industry 4.0. A much-talked about topic, Industry 4.0 requires objective clarification so that we may fully grasp the significance of this development which is set to progressively change our industrial reality. This issue will be addressed as clearly as possible. (Source: Tema)
