High Level Executive Networking for Future-Proof Industry 4.0 Strategies

To master Industry 4.0 is key for future competitiveness in manufacturing industries by enabling best-in-class resource allocation while achieving highest customer satisfaction through digital technologies. IoT, Big Data, AI, new manufacturing technologies and enhanced 5G connectivity form the technological base for smart connected products, intelligent supply chains, lean factories and digital business models, making it easier to apply major transformations.

In a macroeconomic perspective Industry 4.0 helps to shape a more decentralized, risk averse and sustainable world in times of rising global tensions and environmental problems. Industry 4.0 bears the potential for a meaningful re-industrialization in Europe and North America to become less dependent in strategic key areas.

Leaders Dialog is offering a platform for executives to discuss this ongoing industrial transformation and to exchange thoughts and experiences with leaders from other companies, leading experts and scientists.
