Manufacturing is key to development by building economic complexity through industrialization. As the manufacturing sector adds new capabilities to produce more products, participates in value chains, and adds process technologies, this results in more resources and materials being used. Circular economy models are necessary to replace the make, use and dispose linear production model.
The manufacturing sector is now focusing on its crucial role in conserving resources, eliminating waste, and transitioning into more regenerative business models where repairing, reusing, and recycling products replaces simply disposing of them.
The third IFC Global Manufacturing Conference will address the critical questions regarding Circular Economy and provide a dynamic forum for exploring the future of manufacturing.


The conference will be a full-scale virtual event with incredible speakers, valuable resources, Q&A sessions, networking opportunities, exhibitions, and more. It is an effective way to increase visibility among a wide range of manufacturing sector executives and with leaders from developed and emerging markets.

The previous conferences, held in Dusseldorf, Germany, in October 2017, and in Marrakech, Morocco in November 2019, brought together participants from corporations, governments, lending organizations, NGOs, think tanks, and organizations with decades of experience operating in emerging markets.

The conference provides a unique environment to exchange ideas, knowledge, and best practices. It also provides a great opportunity to build new relationships and strengthen existing ones.
