Day 2 of the 2017 IndustryWeek Manufacturing & Technology Conference and Expo began with a keynote address from Ford's Ken Washington, vice president, research and advanced engineering, and concluded with some relaxation, networking and, of course, music at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum on the shores of Lake Erie in Cleveland.
