ISA Digital Transformation Conference

A lot of hype and misunderstandings surround digital transformation. Some companies have shied away from embracing this evolution because they aren’t sure where to begin or can’t see a clear value proposition.

ISA’s third annual Digital Transformation Conference takes a two-pronged approach to this problem. We are highlighting technological applications and the other focusing on adoption case studies. This live and online hybrid event offers participants a deep dive into the financial and organizational benefits of embracing automation technology. You can join us in person in Houston, TX, USA, or virtually from anywhere in the world.

End-user experts will explain how digital twin, predictive analytics, and machine learning improved efficiency, reduced costs and enhanced safety at their companies. Case studies will map out real-world applications of these transformative technologies and offer no-nonsense solutions for operational and manufacturing challenges you face every day.

Advances in automation technology are transforming the industrial landscape. Adoption doesn’t have to be intimidating. Let our presenters show you how to identify the entry points that will best serve your business model. Don’t fall behind the competition. Participate in ISA’s live, interactive sessions. Meet the experts. Hear how they overcame technological and cultural obstacles to reap short-term benefits while setting the stage for a real digital transformation.

LIVE, In-person Option!

In addition to the virtual conference component, would you like to take advantage of being live and in-person with local attendees?
