Future Forum: Rittal and Eplan partner with GAMBICA for virtual event
09 September 2021
FOLLOWING THE announcement from the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy that £53 million funding is being made available for UK manufacturers to boost competitiveness through digital technologies, an online event has been announced that aims to address the scope and possible effects of automation.
Rittal and Eplan have partnered with GAMBICA, B&R, Machineering, Omron, Panasonic, Phoenix Contact and Rockwell Automation, to bring The Future Forum.
The event’s strongly practical orientation will be particularly in evidence with live talks and software demonstrations which provide insights into industry trends, as well as tips and tricks that’ll help to streamline daily tasks in engineering and manufacturing.
Among the highlights of the Future Forum will be keynote presentations from both GAMBICA and the Rittal and Eplan management board. Nikesh Mistry, sector head for Industrial Automation at GAMBICA will be kicking off the series of talks and demonstrations and will discuss the latest industry trends and how the pandemic has acted as a catalyst for digital innovation and adoption. Mistry will also talk through challenges faced and obstacles tackled by members and how digitalisation has helped companies with efficiency, sustainability and profitability.
Shane Hope, managing director at Rittal, comments: "We’re witnessing rapid technological progress. Digital platforms, automation and many other innovations are changing the world around us. As we look to the future, we know that major changes will take place. The Rittal and Eplan Future Forum will provide the opportunity to network, participate in panel discussions and discover ways in which to overcome challenges associated with implementing automation.”
Live between 09:00 and 17:00 on 6 October, all those interested in attending can register free of charge at: https://future-forum.co.uk/
