Extended HAMR event – networking

The Yangtze River delta hosts a number of Dutch rooted advanced machinery producers, which are collected in the Holland Advanced Machinery and production Rotation platform (HAMR). These companies were invited to attend a networking event with Ducth CHInano participants, in order to increase the connectivity and expose those who have the ambitions to extend their business in China to those who have already done so.

This event took place on the evening of September 24 in the Suzhou Kempinsky hotel. It attracted 20 participants, among which business and academic professionals from VDL ETG, Tecnotion, NXP, iBOT and Guilin University, who exchanged and discussed their Chinese experiences with the Dutch CHInanono participants.

Nanopolis matchmaking

In the morning of September 26, the Holland High Tech Center China and NOST hosted a matchmaking session at Nanopolis. The Chinese counterpart for BCS, who had collected high-potential matches to the Dutch companies, was the Suzhou IC association (SICA). This organization had introduced ASEN, GERAD, WLCSP and Miramems to this event.

After BCS and SICA shortly presented their organizations, the attending companies addressed individual companies, or posed specific questions to those who attended, and exchanged information.

Networking and matchmaking… part of the long breath of maneuvering in China, with more often than not no direct results. Nevertheless, orders have been placed on Friday the 26th and the Dutch consortium is looking forward to shortly broaden its activities in China, both in sales as R&D.
