SMART INDUSTRIES, a unique event dedicated to the factory of the future
The second edition of Smart-Industries was held in December 2016. It brought together nearly 200 exhibitors and 8,023 visitors. For the first time in a long time, it was inaugurated by the President.
The third edition will be held from the 27th to the 30th of March, 2018, in Paris Nord Villepinte.
The exhibition lasts four days, during which time over 10,000 visitors will browse the exhibition’s 10,000m² and network with the 400 exhibitors on the theme of the connected smart factory.
SMART-INDUSTRIES features top-notch conferences, dozens of start-ups, tremendous know-how, a competition for young people, etc. It is a global event for the manufacturing sector and is backed by the Industry of the Future Alliance and the President’s office.
Dare to create the Industry of the Future
Creating the Industry of the Future is daring to embrace the digital world and sustainably implement the Industry of the Future in your company. This has become a national ambition since the President launched the Industry of the Future project.
The manufacturing world has entered the era of virtualization and data, reflecting our daily reality.
Companies are moving toward an economy of services and usage, and customers are once again at the center of the manufacturing value chain. This revolution is based on mastering new technologies, training people, and rethinking organization models.
Entrepreneurs need to change their business models and find their place in the value-added chain. In some cases, this may entail switching their business to services, adapting their workflow to purchasing habits that have changed, etc.
From design to manufacturing, the Industry of the Future is an interconnected global system. Industry 3.0 had a vertical integration approach, with systematic process automation and machines that could not communicate. In the 4.0 world, they can “speak” to one another, and technologies such as the Internet of Things, Big Data Analytics, and cobotics will increase the efficiency of factories.
If this is going to move to the next level, the managers of all companies in every line of business must start today.
The Industry of the Future is not optional. To be a part of this mind-blowing and game-changing revolution, all companies must ask themselves the right questions, and Smart-Industries helps you find the right answers.
