Technology Innovations and the Changing Face of Global Manufacturing Economies

NECINA 2014 Annual Meeting


Focused on promoting technology innovations and fostering entrepreneurship, NECINA has been committed to helping its members explore technology ventures and accelerate career development in the past 18 years.

From China to Germany, from Korea to Japan, manufacturing is core to the ascent of global economic powerhouses. In the past decade, global manufacturing has been undergoing profound changes. Automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) now hire more software engineers than leading software vendors. Connected smart things now outnumber the entire human population by 100%.

Join us at the 2014 Annual Meeting to find out what technology innovations are behind the changing face of global manufacturing economies. We will showcase the progress of early-stage ventures from our incubator program and unveil NECINA’s exciting programs for the next year. We will be hosting the YES 8.0 and NEW 2.0 Award Ceremony as well, and don’t forget to stop by check out our business showcase booths from NEW 2.0 program and E-Club.
