Meet ReMaTec’s Expert Panel

Networking and knowledge sharing is a major part of the ReMaTec 2017 experience – and ReMaTec has launched a new initiative to make this even more valuable to visitors. The Expert Panel will be on hand to give the whole of the reman industry a new perspective on best practice. We are inviting industry experts to join this new venture, sharing their tips and experience at interactive ‘Meet the Expert’ sessions during ReMaTec 2017. All reman professionals can sit down with the experts at these ‘coffee table’ or ‘campfire’ events and discuss any challenges you might need to overcome – or simply come to listen to what is trending in the industry. Whether you want to start your own business in reman, or to ask a difficult technical question, then this is the place to come for answers and inspiration. The Expert Panel will not disband after ReMaTec 2017 – instead the ReMaTec experts will act as brand ambassadors, advising the ReMaTec team about new developments in remanufacturing, hot topics and key players.
