Why You Must Be at Connected Manufacturing

Actionable Industry 4.0 Use Cases

We deliver top-level content and case studies highlighting Industry 4.0 strategy conceptualization and application. You'll walk away with pages of actionable strategies to help you become a smarter, more connected manufacturer.
A Program Tailored to Manufacturers of All Sizes
  • We bring together every facet of manufacturing, from Top 500 manufacturing companies, to the world's most innovative start-ups. Regardless of where you stand in comparison to your competition, we have a ton of tailored content that will enable you to walk away with actionable strategies that are applicable to your specific operation.
Cross-Sector Learning & Networking
  • Benefit from tons of interactivity with over 10 hours of discussion groups, creative think-tanks, tracks, roundtables, and structured networking activities every day. You'll develop relationships, make new contacts and speak "off-the-record" with your peers from different sectors and verticals.
