The Future Factory Show is a series of events that span over years ensuring ongoing dialogues and knowledge sharing as the industry evolves. The series started with a successful 2019 edition of the event that was conducted in November 2019 in Riyadh KSA.

Manufacturing, like any other industry, is going through rapid pace of change. Today, manufacturers are striving to do more with less through increasing efficiency, reducing costs, as well as enhancing product quality with the help of technology.
The sector is going through a transformation which is widely considered as the fourth industrial revolution characterized by cyber physical systems, after the three industrial revolutions characterized by mechanization using steam power; mass production through electricity and assembly lines; automation through electronic and computers. This transformation, identified by terms such as Industry 4.0, Smart Manufacturing, is resulting in increased investments in digital technologies enabling autonomy and better decision making.
