28th Factory of the Year - Webmeeting " Report from the engine room and web conference production of the future"

Everything is different and yet this year again the best of the best.

For the 28th time, we are presenting the Factory of the Year Award to the winning works in cooperation with SV Veranstaltungen and the trade journal Produktion. After the COVID-19-related cancellation of the congress in spring, we will use our established web format “Report from the engine room” as a virtual stage from September onwards to report live from the winning plants and present the coveted trophies. The highlight will be our web conference in November with the presentation of the overall winner. Secure your seat now and find out first-hand what makes the best production workers and how they successfully steer through the COVID-19 times.

We are looking forward to your participation.
Your SV Veranstaltungen & Kearney Team
