IDC Pan-European Manufacturing Executive Summit 2014

IDC is happy to announce its second edition of the Pan European Manufacturing Executive Summit 2014 in Brussels, on 17 and 18 November 2014. The summit is a valuable opportunity for IT and LOB executives from leading Manufacturing companies in Europe to network and exchange thoughts with peers from across the region and with leading IDC analysts.

The main theme of this year’s summit will be “Toward 3D Value Chains – Deep dive into manufacturing renaissance opportunities”. Future scenarios of European manufacturers are being driven by an intelligent economy, where customers are more informed, talent is at a premium, and the time to react to changes is compressed. In this complex context, there are tremendous competitive opportunities for savvy companies investing in productivity growth.

The manufacturing industry has an established track record of continuously improving productivity. Vertical integration, industrial automation, and most recently the Internet have been the main productivity boosters in the last century. But where is the industry going to find new productivity gains going forward?

These are some of the issues we seek to explore at the summit during inspiring keynote presentation, interactive panel debates, workshops and round table discussions together with leading European manufacturers, innovative industry thinkers, our outstanding industry Advisory Board, and IDC Manufacturing Insights analysts. Our aim is that you will walk away with ideas on how to address your challenges – today and tomorrow
