The Internet of Things - Are manufacturers ready?

AUG 23, 2016

The IoT era is here - even if many manufacturers aren't ready.

The Internet of Things (IoT) - a superhighway to the future of business - has finally opened. Unfortunately, most manufacturers don't yet have a roadmap, and many have not found the entry ramp. That's a huge challenge for their companies and for the economy - because using the IoT wisely is a key strategic initiative for manufacturers around the globe.

Join GBQ, Huntington and Porter Wright on August 23rd as we welcome John Brandt, CEO of The MPI Group. John will explain why manufacturers may not be ready for the digital revolution that is about to engulf them - and what they can do about it. The presentation will offer not just compelling data, but concrete examples of how manufacturers can quickly profit from the IoT - both in their own operations, and with new products for consumers. Other topics John will discuss include:

  • IoT awareness and expectations 
  • Intelligent plans, processes & products 
  • Best practices of today's manufacturing companies
