Industry 4.0 Strategy Dialog connects pioneering CxOs in the fields of corporate strategy, digitalization, technology, R&D, IT and production, as well as scientists and solution providers to discuss ideas and projects on the road to industrial IoT and new digital business models

Leading Industry 4.0 summit in Germany. Key players discuss digitization and business models. Smart factories, connected products and intelligent supply chains revolutionize the economies. From product to service? From bulk production to customization and batch size 1? From owned to shared resources? From humans to robots? You'll find answers at Industry 4.0 Strategy Dialog. Move further on the road to Industry 4.0. Industry 4.0 Strategy Dialog is not a typical conference.
