mAm 2015: Micronarc Alpine Meeting

Micronarc Alpine Meeting 2015



The event will take place in Villars-sur-Ollon, 1-3 February 2015.

Following in the success of the first 5 editions, The Micronarc Alpine Meeting 2015 will continue its focus on equipment and innovative processes and technologies for manufacturing microproducts.
This 2 day conference is a proven venue for stimulating quality networking and discussions in the casual atmosphere of Villars, a charming village and ski resort located at 1250 meters of altitude. A selection of invited speakers and presentations will comprise the program. A small, table-top exhibition will be conducted in parallel for those wishing to promote their company and products.

The conference will take place on a Monday and Tuesday, thus permitting participants that wish to arrive early to take advantage of the proximity to the ski lifts or simply relax for a couple of days in a laid-back alpine setting. A conference dinner on Monday evening at 1800 meters of altitude will add a touch of local charm.

Social Programme
