NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Industrial Exchange, a creator and manager of high-level forums for industrial companies and their stakeholders, has opened registration for its key annual event — IndEx 2020. The conference will be held April 1-2, 2020 at the Miami Beach Convention Center in Miami Beach, Fla.
Recognized as the premier national event for industrial companies, IndEx 2020 brings together the sector's most important participants — private equity, institutional, and individual owners; C-suite and senior-level operators from all major industrial sub-sectors; leading and up-and-coming technology and investment bankers and consultants — to network, share ideas and hear from recognized experts on issues shaping the future of industrial America.
The theme of this year’s conference will be: “Challenges for Industrial America on the cusp of a new decade.” Topics to be covered at this time of great change include how politics is trumping economics as a key concern for industrial operators, what’s coming next in industrial automation, how ESG investment is reshaping industrial company operations, why the workforce of the future is here now (and what that means), and creating value in tough times.
Like last year’s event, IndEx 2020 is designed to stimulate innovative thinking and to encourage interaction among all sector participants.
“The content, audience and overall network that the Industrial Exchange team assembled for IndEx 2019 was impressive. We’re excited to be a part of IndEx 2020 and share our knowledge with this growing community of industrial operators and investors,” said Foster Finley, managing director and New York-based head of the operations practice at AlixPartners, a global business advisory firm.
A particular strength of IndEx, say participants, is the opportunity to discover new technologies that are driving innovation, efficiency, growth and profitability at industrial companies.
“Private Equity value creation is increasingly tech-enabled,” said John May, a managing partner at Chicago-based Core Industrial Partners, a private equity firm that invests exclusively in manufacturing and industrial companies in North America.
“IndEx balances sponsors’ needs to become more knowledgeable about technology trends impacting their businesses with the desire for that knowledge to be practical and impactful on realistic time horizons,” said Mr. May, whose firm owns one of the largest 3D and additive manufacturing platforms in the world.
