Hear from leading manufacturers at North America's most comprehensive IIoT event

After the buzz of the inaugural event, opened by the Governor of Illinois, we are excited to reconvene at the Internet of Manufacturing Midwest conference, June 5-7, 2018, in Chicago, IL. This is the only event to drive North America’s manufacturing industry forward through essential lessons in digital advancement!

Over three days, 300+ industry professionals meet in one of North America’s manufacturing heartlands to clarify how technological investment is allowing production plans to adapt quickly to unexpected equipment failures, shifts in demand and raw material sourcing.

After sharing early findings as to why building the Industrial IoT business case is an essential step in reducing production downtime and operational costs, the second edition of our flagship North American event dives even deeper into how IoT platforms and AI are helping manufacturers optimize product design and field service.
