All visitors are welcome, and this is the stage where reman-industry specialists share their technical knowledge and expert views on market developments in interactive workshops.

It is here, too, that thought leaders and industry experts will gather to unpack trends in the political, business and economic landscape and consider what they mean for the remanufacturing industry. The cross-sectoral discussions here will be some of the most revealing sessions of Rematec 2023, looking in particular at common goals and challenges.
