The Dinner

Join us as we celebrate the manufacturing leaders who’ve dedicated their careers to achieving outstanding operational performance. You’ll dine at the top of the Berliner Fernsehturm where you’ll experience unforgettable panoramic views of Berlin.

Three awards will be presented during a drinks reception on the lower level. These are some of our previous winners. You’ll then take the lift up 200m where you’ll be seated for the three-course meal.

The relaxed evening is a fantastic opportunity to strengthen relationships with those that you met earlier at the summit.

The Awards

Congratulations to our 2018 winners!

European Manufacturing Leadership Award 

This award celebrates the accomplishments of an individual over the course of their manufacturing career.

Mario Naldini

Manufacturing & Supply Chain Director

Prometeon (ex Pirelli Industrial)

I am very honored to get this award! This award is not only for me but I would like to share it with all the people that worked together with me. This prize is for all the people that in these 26 years have collaborated with me. Therefore I want to share it with all the collaborators with whom in the course of my career I have shared hard work, enthusiasm, disappointments and results. They are more friends than colleagues and without them no success would have been possible!

When I received the announcement of the award I immediately thought of my family who had the patience to follow me around the world from Europe to China to Brazil, sacrificing themselves to allow me to continue my work and my career. I thought a lot about my father, who was also an engineer and a manufacturing manager, who unfortunately died when I had just started university. I would have liked to be able to tell him about this award and to share it with him so that he could be happy and proud of me.
