FORCAM's Smart Factory World Symposium aspires to become North America's leading event for Smart Manufacturing and Operational Excellence. Each year, over 200 guests from manufacturing, politics, academia and research congregate to discuss latest Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) trends and developments for the Smart Factory.

Join us for expert presentations from innovative manufacturers and thought leaders, panel discussions featuring best-practice use cases, and a show case on DMDII's 20,000 sq.ft. shop floor.

Whether you're new to the smart factory, or an expert on shop floor digitization - this is the place to be to pick up on new trends and insights to achieve operational excellence in manufacturing.

Why attend?

The economy of the United States is the largest in the world. At $18 trillion, it represents 13% generated by manufacturing alone. But the rules for manufacturing are changing.

Every day in plants around the world, workers are using data as a tool to obliterate downtime and drive productivity. The silos that separated the Information Technology and Operations departments are being razed, and are being replaced by bridges and tunnels to connect data with the people who need to use it. The new Rules of Manufacturing 4.0 recognize the opportunity provided to plant leaders.

The real key is people. They must be catalysts for change in manufacturing worldwide if we are to achieve the levels of efficiency, productivity, energy management and above all - safety that Manufacturing 4.0 can provide.

Learn and network with companies like GKN Aerospace, Pratt & Whitney, UTAS, Lockheed Martin, JTEKT, Makino, Belden, Richards Industries and others:

  • Benefits of an Industrial IoT platform
