IDC European Manufacturing Executive Digital Forum 2020


The IDC European Manufacturing Summit consisted of live programming on November 24th, 2020. The overarching theme of the event was Manufacturing Resilience to succeed in the “next normal”.

The event was discussing the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on manufacturing. The post-pandemic world will see a new normal of manufacturers focused on remote capabilities in operations, product innovation, supply chain, and customer management. That focus will drive significant investment in process automation, centralized asset monitoring and diagnostics, ERP and cloud-based collaboration tools.

The agenda has been defined with highly respected Advisory Board members from the Manufacturing industry and technology vendors with solutions for Manufacturers. The on-demand sessions are archived recordings of the event day itself and available for viewing at your convenience.
