Industry Events

Here you will find interesting industry-relevant dates of external organizers.

Additive manufacturing (AM) makes it possible to print high-quality parts on demand, anywhere in the world, and only in the quantities needed, eliminating the need for large inventories. This sounds like a sustainable solution that saves time and money and makes companies less dependent on suppliers. How can AM, 3D-printing and digitization help solve global supply chain problems? The event is free of charge for DNHK member companies and companies from the industrial sector and is organized by the Dutch-German Chamber of Commerce.

In dealing with energies and raw materials, the USA is also facing profound changes. New energy concepts and circular economy systems are required. In the course of the delegation trip (March 26-31, 2023) to Minnesota and Chicago, contacts are to be made with representatives from business, science and politics and synergies between NRW and the target regions are to be worked out. During the stay, participants will have the opportunity to establish business contacts through targeted pitches and workshops and will receive innovative impulses for their business. The registration deadline for the trip is February 13, 2023. The organizer of the trip is IHK Nord Westfalen and NRW.GlobalBusiness.

With “sustainable materials” this company trip, which will take place from June 17 to 24, 2023, focuses on recyclability as well as a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions along the entire value chain (e.g. during manufacturing or in use through lightweight construction). In order to achieve as much thematic overlap as possible between the two high-tech countries of Japan and Germany, the focus will be on the high-tech sector, including the automotive and aerospace industries. The aim of the business trip organized by NRW.Global Business GmbH and the NMWP.NRW cluster is to bring together companies from NRW and Japan from the fields of “new and sustainable materials” in the high-tech sector. In addition, the “Manufacturing World Japan 2023” will be visited. The registration deadline for the trip is April 20, 2023.


The NRW Business Conference on the Reconstruction of Ukraine on March 23, 2023, starting at 1 p.m., will offer experts from companies and public institutions in NRW and Ukraine the opportunity to exchange knowledge and opinions. The focus will be on the current situation and framework conditions for future cooperation in the reconstruction of Ukraine. The conference is a joint event of the Ministry of Economy, Industry, Climate Protection and Energy of North Rhine-Westphalia, NRW.Global Business and IHK NRW. Further partners are the Committee on Eastern European Economic Relations and the German-Ukrainian Chamber of Industry and Commerce (AHK Ukraine).
