Design for Manufacturing Summits twice a year bring together 50 to 100 leaders in product development, design, engineering and manufacturing in an informal setting to explore the latest developments in technology, discuss how to move the industry forward and do business.

80 percent of manufacturing costs are determined in the first 20 percent of the product design phase. Design has the key to take cost and waste out of manufacturing. Digital tools are a catalyst to transformation of the manufacturing industry - leaner and more decentralized.

Getting designers, engineers and manufacturers in one room and talking is the first step to unlock the enormous opportunities for cost savings, innovation and growth, for both startups and enterprise.

Design for Manufacturing Summits are curated, invitation-only events. Use the form below to signal your interest. There is a limited number of complimentary tickets available for qualified attendees.
