The event was about networking and discussions on how the industry is transformed through technology and competence development. It was about sustainability for which the companies constantly are doing hard development work.

The main goal of the FMWM is to show what a wide and magnificent range of advanced mobile machine companies we have in Finland. To show, that the field is vital and attractive, and will be in the future too.

The goal was also to highlight the state-of-art expertise we already have in Finland the ten companies and two research organizations of the SIX MM cluster are working tirelessly to achieve the future vision of Finland being the best place in the world for making mobile machines.

We heard many interesting presentations from high-level experts and company representatives, and a very enlightening panel discussion about the roadmap themes of electrification and autonomy.

With the event booths, simulators, and other equipment brought by the cluster companies their expertise was introduced to hundreds of event visitors from different cities, companies, organizations, and officials.

There was not a silent moment as people were diligently chatting with each other during the breaks. Also the outside EXPO area was very popular with different machines brought there by Ponsse, Valtra and Sandvik.
