MakeMore Manufacturing Summit 2021
Technology touches every aspect of manufacturing regardless of company size. Manufacturing both adapts to technology and in many cases, creates technology. Ensuring that a company’s workforce is adept with the changing nature of advancements whether it’s integrating Smart Factories technologies or guarding against cyber-attacks, the discussion, preparation, and execution of technology is imperative for every company. The Technology Segment will host discussions around how companies can leverage the benefits of accelerating technology to foster innovation and what the ecosystem needs to focus on to ensure every manufacturer in Florida is on a pathway to implement the Smart Factory floor.
As 2021 comes to an end, the sector leaves behind an unprecedented time of change, adaptation and resilience. Change, however, is always on the horizon. The emergence of the Smart Factory and its transformation of the sector continues. Keeping our workforce skilled while growing the next generation is ongoing. This session will take a bold leap into 2022 with a “future focused” agenda that brings together industry experts and trailblazers ready to tackle the big issues.
