SMART Manufacturing Conference 2022 @ Wyndham Garden Hotel
Oct 5 @ 11:00 am – 5:00 pm

The Future of Manufacturing & the Implications of the Next Industrial Revolution

There is a Revolution and significant societal shifts happening right now, and if you’re not a part of it, your business is at risk of being left behind.

It’s time. Time to restructure, rework, and plan for the future.

As manufacturers, that’s what we do. As we resurface on the other side of COVID, it’s time to reassess the broader economic, technological and societal landscape and design a path forward. What we all need now is a different map. Old assumptions are just that. It’s a new era, and success will come to those who can rethink their strategy, revise what was broken, and reignite a passion for production.

Do you know the answers to these pivotal questions about your industry, and broader world we live in?

What’s new?
What’s trending?
What’s outdated?
What am I missing?

Learn the importance and value of future thinking from Keynote speaker David Beurle, Founder and CEO of Future iQ, a research and consulting company specializing in foresight and scenario-based strategic planning.

You’ll leave this session:

Re-energized and motivated to act
Reassessing your current strategies and tactics
Realizing that changes must begin now
Ready to leverage change and technology to improve operations
Reaffirming your commitment to working on your business, not just in it
