Following months of planning, I’m happy to announce that IndustryWeek will host a live event next year, offering plant tours, networking opportunities and an interactive conference experience that promises to be engaging, educational and, most importantly, useful.
To be held June 26-June 28, 2024, in Indianapolis, the IndustryWeek Operations Leadership Summit will focus on improving manufacturing operations. Major topics will be continuous improvement, technology adoption and leadership and workforce. We are recruiting speakers, arranging plant tours and scheduling keynote addresses, and we’ll share those details as we confirm them.
Past IndustryWeek live events have featured top speakers from Ford Motor Co., Intel, Johnson & Johnson, Toyota and many other of the world’s leading manufacturing companies. For the 2024 show, we’ll be putting a premium on interactivity – meaning fewer slide presentations and more discussions with the people in charge of implementing continuous improvement plans or digital transformation projects.
To make that happen, we’d love to hear from you. If you have a story to share about a successful continuous improvement project (or a not-so-successful one that taught some important lessons) or have insights into technology adoption or workforce issues, please respond to our call for speakers. IndustryWeek events have long been a forum for peers to talk to peers, and that’s a legacy that we very much want to honor.
We’ve designed the Operations Leadership Summit to center on the people who make things happen in the manufacturing world every day – people managing complex supply chains and worker training while evaluating new technologies and achieving flow on the plant floor. From panel discussions to plant tours, our goal is to provide you with insights, inspiration and technical best practices for you to improve your manufacturing operations.
Registration for the event is open, and we’d love to see you next year in Indianapolis.
