We are excited to return to Chicago for the 6th year, to run another factual and fun Manufacturing X.0 Midwest!

Renowned for the quality of its speakers, regional support, informative solution partners, MxD Tour and networking, Manufacturing X.0 Midwest – formerly Internet of Manufacturing – is not to be missed.

On stage, find Midwestern and national manufacturing leaders teaching peers, in detail, how to take advantage of the competitive edge that technology offers, and advance digital transformation journeys.

Don’t miss the place to learn how to build the ‘Big R’: Resilience and tackle the four Ps: People, Planning, Processes and Partner choice when embarking on automation, smart manufacturing, Industry 4.0…and beyond!
