On the Horizon – the Technologies Transforming Industry

Main Image

Grab a coffee in your favourite mug, settle into your favourite chair, and experience the next industrial horizon from the comfort of your own home. Or office. Or home-office. Or wherever you will be on 16th September!

Yes, we’re bringing VirtualConnect, our virtual smart manufacturing conference, to your screen again. And, as you have come to expect, this 3.0 iteration of our new (100% COVID-secure) digital conference format will be bigger, better, and smarter than ever.

It was a huge pleasure to deliver the welcome keynote at VirtualConnect 2.0 (you can catch up on that here, for a flavour of the format and to hear about the latest smart machines, smart operations and Digital Transformation). At VirtualConnect 3.0, I’m excited to be welcoming you and all of our virtual delegates to our focus areas for this conference, namely, the technologies transforming industry.

Attend our third VirtualConnect event to discover the next horizon in smart manufacturing.

What to Expect

For anyone new to VirtualConnect – first, where have you been?! And second, welcome! Here’s a short video explainer and here’s how it works:

1. Sign up here.

2. Pick a technology track that works for you:

    a. Mechatronics

    b. Digital Engineering

    c. Process Control

Or move between them to see the presentations, join the Q&As, see demos, and experience panel discussions that will open your own Smart Manufacturing horizons. The full agenda is here.

3. Join us on 16th September. All you need is a screen and an internet connection. But, to make the very most the networking opportunity, you will also benefit from a keyboard, microphone and camera, too.

4. Join your chosen sessions throughout the day

5. Take advantage of the time between your sessions and use our virtual lobby experience as a gateway to networking with specialists, partners and peers via videoconference, and exploring the exhibitor booths on our virtual exhibition floor.

Discover, Network and be Inspired

Joining us at VirtualConnect is completely free of charge, and by taking part, you’ll get access to live content delivered by leaders from the likes of Cama Group, PTC, Eplan and Lubrizol, who tell their own stories of how they have overcome key industry challenges by employing some of the latest methods for mechatronics, digital engineering and process control.

For a complete list of Rockwell Automation leaders and subject-matter experts, visit the VirtualConnect event page. Here you can plan your visit and see companies that will be manning booths on the virtual exhibition floor.

See you there.
