NEWS: Future players in industry will meet @Alihankinta

Where is the solution for the challenges of productivity in the Finnish manufacturing industry? There is a shortage of skilled workforce and many of the players in the sector face problems with growth: Domestic subcontractors are unable to meet the individual needs and quality requirements of the clients in the required timeframe.
Are the solutions to be found in new automation, intelligent updates to automation solutions, or development of manual work? The entire Finnish industry will meet not only to discuss these topics but also to see the innovations presented by more than 1,000 exhibitors at the Subcontracting Fair from 25–27 September 2018 in Tampere. Welcome!

AlihankintaHEAT wants to challenge the traditional thinking and practices of industry and turn all heads towards smart industry. Heat Stage will present up-to-date speeches, discussions and pitches.

Since 1988: Subcontracting 30.0

The first Subcontracting Trade Fair was organised in 1988. Subcontracting is strongly developing and becoming more international, and our vision is to be the most important subcontracting trade fair event in Northern Europe.

Industry's productivity must be improved

The Subcontracting Trade Fair celebrates its 30th anniversary, and the theme of the event is productivity. Subcontractors of the manufacturing industry have ensured their competitiveness and their competitive edge by continuously developing productivity and with investments. This trend is not going to change in the future, which makes productivity an apt theme.

“When considering efficient use of time, the Subcontracting Trade Fair is an efficient way to meet cooperation partners and subcontractors. Instead of driving thousands of kilometres, the same results – if not even better – can be reaped by walking through the fair centre and networking for a couple of days. It is easy to get an update on the overall market conditions from the large network participating in the Subcontracting Trade Fair, while also meeting potential new companies”
