Industry 4.0 manufacturing summit kicks off in February

The Industrial Internet 4.0 Summit, a major gathering of local and global leaders in the manufacturing sector, will kick off in Sydney in February.

Representatives from the manufacturing industry, government, manufacturing innovation centres and suppliers will gather at the Summit at a “critical moment for the industry,” according to the event producer, Shahida Sweeney.

“As the global economy continues to recover, companies must continue to innovate to be able to adapt to ever-changing markets. And we must embrace and support efforts such as Australia’s Industry 4.0 initiative that seek to create opportunities for local manufacturers,” Sweeney said.

“The dynamic, creative and energetic manufacturing businesses in Australia are well-positioned to take advantage of the opportunities brought on by the next wave of the industrial revolution and to push forward the manufacturing industry” she added.

In a bid to shape the future of manufacturing, the Summit welcomes globally recognised leaders to exchange ideas on the development and future trends of the global manufacturing industry.

The Summit also features local case studies and workshops focusing on the integration between operations and technology in a factory environment, together with an assessment of connected networks, mobility and human-machine interaction.

“We wanted to create a stimulating environment where key stakeholders from Australia’s manufacturing sector could come together, learn, collaborate and develop a practical roadmap for success”, continued Sweeney.

The event takes place from 26-28 February in Sydney. You can secure tickets at the event website  or by calling +61 (0)2 9977 0565.
