The Global Manufacturing and Industrialisation Summit (GMIS) was established in 2015 to build bridges between manufacturers, governments, multilateral organizations, technologists, the research community and investors, in order to harness the Fourth Industrial Revolution’s transformative potential for inclusive and sustainable industrial development. A joint initiative between UNIDO and the Ministry of Energy and Industry of the United Arab Emirates, GMIS is a platform which helps us create new partnerships, initiatives and actions connected to digital manufacturing.
The Global Manufacturing and Industrialisation Summit (GMIS)
What is the Global Manufacturing and Industrialisation Summit (GMIS)?
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the associated public health measures enacted worldwide, the third edition of the Global Manufacturing and Industrialisation Summit could not take place in a traditional face-to-face format as originally planned. However, in light of this challenge it has been decided to convene GMIS 2020 as a digital webinar series, to take place from 30 June-25 August, leading to a virtual Summit, to be held from 4-5 September 2020.
The #GMIS2020 Virtual Edition will reflect on the role of “glocalization: towards sustainable and inclusive value chains” for the future of manufacturing, while also addressing the much changed international manufacturing environment and the acceleration of digital manufacturing, spurred on by the COVID-19 pandemic. The role of digital technologies in aiding societal reconstruction post-pandemic will also be a major theme.
Viewers can join the conversation online, which will consist of a number of high-level discussion panels.

What is GMIS Connect?
GMIS Connect is the Global Manufacturing and Industrialisation Summit’s international roadshow programme. Strategically held in some of the world’s leading cities, GMIS Connect is focused on reaching out to key markets and stakeholders such as manufacturers, governments and NGOs, technologists, and investors. It is the starting point for discussions on trends, opportunities, challenges and ideas to enable the genuine, meaningful transformation of the global manufacturing sector. By gathering international insights, data, knowledge and opinion on how the manufacturing sector of the future should be built, GMIS Connect shapes the discussion for #GMIS2020.
From 9-11 July 2019, the manufacturing community gathered in the city of Yekaterinburg for the second edition of the Global Manufacturing and Industrialisation Summit (GMIS).
First announced by President Vladimir Putin in May 2018, #GMIS2019 was held under the theme of ‘nature-inspired technologies’ – also known as biomimetic design and biomimicry – highlighting the ways in which manufacturing is inspired by our surrounding environment to innovate. The 2019 summit continued to intensify the impact of innovation and Fourth Industrial Revolution technologies on the global manufacturing sector through the worldwide dissemination of knowledge, best practices and standards, while highlighting the role of manufacturing in enabling global prosperity through advancing the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations.
