QRM World Conference - Eindhoven 2018
The biggest QRM event of 2018
On the 19th & 20th of June, the biggest QRM event of this year will take place at Van der Valk Hotel in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. An utmost interesting and extensive conference that is fundamental for (future) QRM companies. During this three-day gathering, the most recent developments concerning Quick Response Manufacturing (QRM) will be discussed. There will be interesting masterclasses, case studies, workshops, simulation games and plenty of opportunities to network. Special guest is Dr. Rajan Suri, Founder of the QRM strategy.
On Monday the 18th of June, Dr. Suri will provide a Quick Response Manufacturing masterclass specially for 'newcomers'. He will extensively explain how QRM helps drastically reduce lead times.
The morning of Thursday the 21st of June has been specially reserved for a company visit of choice. Four QRM-minded companies have been carefully selected to give you the best insights of what QRM can do for your company. Please note that it is only possible to visit one company per person. All four company visits begin simultaneously.
Eindhoven is bursting with energy, and we are glad to share it with you. When you google innovation, it is no coincidence that the first images you find are light bulbs. Over 125 years ago, Philips brought light to Eindhoven. Nowadays, Eindhoven is a bustling city in transition, with a constant flow of new developments in the fields of creativity, innovation, technology, design and knowledge.
Discover the broad selection of hotspots, highlights, events and other activities to help you get to know the design capital of the Netherlands. Visit the city centre for some shopping and dining, wander through Eindhoven’s technological past and future at the Strijp-S site or explore one of the other exciting city districts. Discover Eindhoven’s vibe, both in popular hangouts and off the beaten track.
