Webinar: The Top Trends & Takeaways from 3 Industrial Conferences: Hannover Messe, ProMat, & Automate
Date: April 17, 2019 (Wednesday)
Time: 10:30 a.m. U.S. EDT
Length of Webinar: 45 minutes, plus 15-minute question-and-answer session
Hannover Messe 2019 in Germany expects to have more than 6,500 exhibitors and 220,000 visitors. ProMat forecasts 1,000 exhibitors and visitors from 115 countries while Automate anticipates 450 exhibitors; these two co-located conferences will be held in Chicago.
Expectations are immensely high from these three top industrial conferences in terms of technological innovations, especially when the manufacturing landscape is undergoing a sea change of digital transformations.
The industrial landscape is rapidly changing because of global competition, lack of energy, an insufficient labor pool, a convoluted supply chain and global sourcing environment, as well as high amounts of customization put pressure on tooling and reconfiguration. Furthermore, batch runs are getting smaller, thereby manufacturers are getting less lift out of every order.
This webinar from ABI Research will explore the aforementioned issues and identify what the most compelling technological developments were at all three conferences and how they should be maximized.
Our analysts will also give an overview of the must-have technologies needed for a “lights-out” production line on the factory floor. Technologies such as additive manufacturing, IIoT, edge and cloud computing, machine learning and artificial intelligence, advanced robotics, augmented reality, production simulation and wireless connectivity all will continue to impact manufacturing, automate it and augment the work and abilities of humans on the shop floor.
Our analysts will also answer these questions:
- What technology trends were on fire at all three conferences and why?
- What companies should you explore and why?
- What companies and technologies did not meet expectations?
- What pitfalls should be avoided when implementing digital transformations?
- What are best practices to follow when implementing digital transformations?
