New features at CWIEME Berlin 2021!
The industry can expect new features at CWIEME Berlin 2021. One is the exclusive business matchmaking service ‘Meet-the-Engineer’ – for the first time connecting engineers and purchasing managers with relevant suppliers based on product interests. Work has already started on CWIEME Berlin 2021 and the organisers are committed to continue to provide the leading global platform for the community to connect, learn, network and – most importantly – do business.
"As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, our 25th anniversary edition of CWIEME Berlin will not happen as originally planned in 2020 and the event will now take place on May 18-20, 2021. It has become clear in recent weeks that the challenges we face in running an event of the size and standard expected of CWIEME Berlin would be significant," said Nick Davison, CWIEME Portfolio Director. “We are committed to continue to provide the leading global platform for our community to connect, learn, network and do business.
