Event Overview

Our press conference entitled “The Global Machine Tools Sector: State of Play & Tackling New Challenges “, took place on Monday 18 September from 12:00 to 13:00. For the first time at EMO, CECIMO held a joint press conference with the world’s leading machine tool associations to present the global machine tool outlook.

At a time of deep political and economic uncertainty, and fragmented global supply chains, international cooperation is paramount. To address this imperative, we brought together machine tool industry leaders from the United States, China, Japan and Europe. Together they provided invaluable insights into the latest industry developments and trends.

This event provided a unique platform to stay at the forefront and gain a comprehensive insight into the challenges and opportunities shaping the global machine tool industry. Speakers covered a range of topics including geopolitical issues, global market trends, new opportunities and challenges and their potential impact on the future of the machine tool sector worldwide.
