Join ENGEL Virtually and Experience the Future of Injection Moulding

ENGEL is shifting its traditional in-house event to a virtual platform with a three-day live e-symposium for its customers to attend from June 22-24. Centered on injection moulding, the event is set to feature a virtual showroom and plant tours.

‘True passion, real innovation, virtual experience’ is the motto under which injection moulding machine manufacturer and system solution provider ENGEL is inviting customers to its live e-symposium. For the first time, ENGEL’s traditional in-house exhibition will be a virtual event, enabling even more customers, partners and interested parties from all regions of the world to join in. ENGEL anticipates several thousand guests.

ENGEL will address the current and future challenges in injection moulding over the three-day event. Broader topics include:

  • How can the new possibilities of digitalisation be converted into opportunities?
  • Which innovative technologies have the potential to increase competitiveness?
  • How can moulders reconcile sustainability and cost-effectiveness?

The event will include keynote presentations and business talks by experts from ENGEL and other companies, all with live, moderated Q&A sessions. The virtual showroom will include 25 machine exhibits and virtual tours of ENGEL’s facilities in Austria. The company’s global sales, customer service and development teams, will also be available for one-on-one meetings.

Dr. Christoph Steger, CSO of the ENGEL Group, emphasised:

Personal contacts, and direct exchange, are the focus of the ENGEL live e-symposium.

We would like to invite all customers, partners and interested parties to make appointments with their personal contacts as well as our experts before and during the event to explore the virtual ENGEL world together in a one-on-one session.”

Even more languages, even more varied range of topics

Last October, ENGEL held its first virtual, interactive trade fair, the live e-xperience –  and with great success. That event attracted participants from more than 90 different countries. This platform, which has firmly established itself in the meantime, now offers the framework for the first ENGEL live e-symposium.

The key factor in the decision to hold the symposium as a virtual event, and one that is much anticipated by customers, is the ongoing global Covid-19 pandemic.

This year, we are taking the ENGEL symposium to our customers,” says Steger. “The virtual format gives all customers and interested parties around the world a safe option for joining in, regardless of the infection scenario in their respective regions.”

ENGEL is making a virtue out of necessity and leveraging the benefits of the virtual platform for its customers. All program items, such as the lectures and guided tours, will be offered in a total of seven languages. In addition, the presentations have been adapted to the individual requirements of each country and region. On the Tuesday of the event, the online conference will focus on the requirements of Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Wednesday is aimed primarily at participants in Western, Southern and Eastern Europe and in the METAI region (Middle East, Turkey, Africa, India), and Thursday at participants in North and Latin America. Accordingly, the keynote program on Thursday will not start until 4 p.m. Central European Time, while the lectures on Tuesday and Wednesday will start at 10 a.m.

For customers and interested parties in Asia, the virtual offering is accompanied by face-to-face events at ENGEL plants and subsidiaries. Hygiene and safety concepts have been developed for this in line with the requirements in the individual countries.

The live e-symposium is helping us further extend the reach of our in-house exhibition,” says Steger. “We are expecting several thousand participants.”
