Who are C-level executives?

C-level executives
/ˈsiː ˈlev(ə)l ɛgzɛkjədɪv/

Anyone with a letter “C” in their position nametag, such as CEO, CFO, COO, and CMO, but also, as the position name can just be a name, then anyone who identifies as a C-level leader.

Executive Day 2022

For C-level executives who make strategic decisions for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

The Executive Day is about taking the time to listen, talk and network with other leaders. This is the place to bounce your thoughts and learn about challenges and solutions across different industries.

We believe that interdisciplinarity is a foundation of creativity and out-of-the-box thinking. Solutions for your problems can come from the most unexpected place. Thus we are bringing together companies from manufacturing, IT, logistics, farming, banking, etc. It will be Legen...Wait for it...Dary to say at least!

Executive Day is powered by our amazing partner Fractory. Fractory is a cloud manufacturing platform that connects engineering companies with the manufacturing market in real-time, allowing engineers and purchasing managers to make the switch from data collectors to decision-makers. Fractory is constantly finding ways to improve efficiency, accessibility, and quality for the sake of manufacturing allowing the manufacturing industry to become more sustainable as a whole.
