March 26, 2019 – The inaugural Digital Industry USA trade show (Sept. 11 to 12, 2019), has added a one-day Digital Transformation Executive Conference preceding the fair, to present ideas and solutions for manufacturing professionals to achieve a fully connected facility.
The Digital Transformation Executive Conference will be held Tuesday, September 10 in Louisville, Kentucky. The conference and Digital Industry USA are presented by Hannover Fairs USA (HFUSA) and Deutsche Messe.
The conference will kick off with a morning workshop led by ARC Advisory Group entitled “How to Design and Implement Digital Transformation Strategies.” The workshop will address common themes and challenges of digital transformation and will explore strategy development for different manufacturing organizations, as well as offer solutions and insights for how attendees can successfully link their digital transformation vision with execution within their organizations.
The morning workshop is designed for chief digital officers and other C-suite executives, general managers, plant managers, operational excellence executives, vice-presidents and directors of strategy, planning and innovation, as well as digital transformation team leaders.
“We encourage all manufacturing executives responsible for and engaged in the strategic planning associated with digital transformation and Industry 4.0 to attend our morning workshop,” says Mike Guilfoyle, director of research at ARC Advisory Group. “Attendees will gain a much more informed view of how to link business objectives with the execution of sustainable digital transformation within their organizations.”
Immediately following the morning workshop, Digital Industry USA will host a networking luncheon for all Sept. 10 conference attendees.
The afternoon programing is divided into three Global Automation & Manufacturing Summit (GAMS) tracks hosted by HFUSA in partnership with CFE Media. The afternoon GAMS tracks are Supply Chain Optimization, Digital Transformation Work Skills and IIoT Productivity. A panel of experts, thought leaders and visionaries, including ARC analysts, will keynote the panels during each track.
Following the executive conference, at the Digital Industry USA trade show, exhibitors such as industrial technology providers and automation companies will showcase solutions, knowledge and expertise for every level of IIoT adoption on and off the plant floor. The direction of the inaugural event is being steered by a committee of industry experts from ARC Advisory Group, Beckhoff, Forcam, Hiwin, Microsoft, Nikola Industrial & Manufacturing Solutions and SAP.
