4. Connect and collaborate with hundreds of tech and manufacturing professionals from around the globe.

With the pandemic continuing to keep us from hosting large-scale events, Integr8 2020 will provide plenty of opportunities to network in a virtual setting via 1-on-1 meetings, roundtables and immersions and also a virtual Industry 4.0 Expo Hall, bringing together technology and manufacturing leaders from across the globe to help influence the course of business and construct the next level of Industry 4.0.

5. Explore the latest in Industry 4.0 technologies.

See technology in action! Attend 30-minute demonstrations with an Industry 4.0 leader on both days of Integr8. In addition, the Integr8 2020 Virtual Expo Hall will allow you to visit virtual booths to learn about company offerings, message companies with your questions or ideas and make connections that will help your business move forward.

6. Hear from companies leading the digital revolution.

The best way to learn about how to successfully implement Industry 4.0 technologies is to hear from those who have been through the process before. Join roundtable sessions on both days of Integr8 to hear use cases and best practices to help your business stay competitive in the digital age.

7. Have your voice heard at our Integr8 immersions.

Your voice matters and we want to hear from you! Integr8 immersion participation will allow you to share your greatest digital transformation successes and also the most pressing challenges facing your business. Automation Alley is honored to once again partner with the World Economic Forum to convene global and regional leaders from industry, academia and government at Integr8 for these immersive conversations. Together, we can achieve what no one industry or organization can do alone.

8. Walk away with a better understanding of Industry 4.0 implementation.

Integr8 is a place where Industry 4.0 knowledge meets action. Our goal is that you leave this two-day experience not only with a better understanding of industry 4.0 adoption, but also with the connections, resources and implementation steps necessary to make Industry 4.0 a reality for you business, or take it to the next level.
