Reading time ( words)

Each year, IPC APEX EXPO features industry’s most dynamic, innovative minds to deliver keynote presentations that are both educational and entertaining. IPC APEX EXPO 2021 will feature IndustryWeek Editor-in-Chief Travis Hessman. During his keynote on March 10, Hessman will present, “The Great Digital Transformation.”

Hessman will educate keynote participants on the process undertaken by some of today’s most successful companies and what they are doing to transform a dizzying array of technologies such as connected machine-to-machine systems, machine learning and artificial intelligence into actionable, effective digital strategies. In addition, he will cover how they achieved greater operational efficiency and launched new products faster while improving product quality across their businesses.

Guided by Hessman, participants will navigate a roadmap to digital transformation that can help move their companies from the sidelines to the heart of the Factory of the Future -- The Industry 4.0 revolution.

As chief editor of IndustryWeek, Hessman offers a unique perspective on the digital manufacturing revolution as he is in daily contact with some of the world’s most successful and innovative manufacturers who are immersed in real-life implementation, application, and strategies for digital transformation success. His presentation will mix these perspectives with his background as a teacher, a mentor, and a writer to create a powerful storytelling experience that crafts a distinct narrative to help cut through the noise and hype and drive real progress for the industry. Later in the afternoon, Hessman will conduct a live, one-hour Q&A session with attendees who will have the opportunity to pose their own questions on digital transformation.

Hessman’s keynote is free to all IPC APEX EXPO participants. In addition to Hessman’s keynote, John Mitchell, IPC president and CEO and Shawn DuBravac, IPC chief economist, will deliver keynotes on March 8 and 11, respectively. The virtual conference, courses and online exhibition will run March 8–12, 2021. For more information on schedule and registration options, visit www.IPCAPEXEXPO.org.

At last, a live EIPC conference and this time in the Swedish city of Örebro, “where history and contemporary culture converge,” a pleasant and convenient location for an event that included a privileged visit to the Ericsson facility in Kumla. Around 100 delegates made the journey and the Örebro Scandic Grand Hotel was an excellent conference venue for the June 14-15 conference.
