Hear from industry leaders at Europe’s biggest and most comprehensive IIoT Event

Now in its 3rd year, the annual Internet of Manufacturing Germany is Europe’s leading event for the fast growing and business critical Industrial Internet of Things sector. With over half of all production processes now using IoT and manufacturers planning to embed smart devices or intelligence into products, IoT is the route to increased productivity and profitability.

Germany is the birthplace of the Industrie 4.0 initiative and with its strong manufacturing sector, from family run Mittelstand companies to global automotive companies. To really take off and reach their potential, manufacturers now need a roadmap to implement IoT.
