2020 GSA European Executive Forum
Reshaping Industries, Transforming Societies
While consumers get the latest gadgets, the industrial sector – large and diverse, encompassing a broad array and variety of companies and services – is where the latest technologies always had the greatest impact, fuelling productivity and growth in the whole economy.
But industrial growth has been flattening in recent years: hit by the need to innovate faster, get much closer to customers, and achieve a step-change in operational efficiency.
Companies have embraced a new phase of technology-enabled transformations to take them through the current uncertain times and into the next horizon of industrial performance improvement and growth. Industry leaders will discuss the Industries in Transformation enabled by technologies and their use cases, such as Industrial Automation / Robotics, Remote Maintenance, Automotive; 5G/AI/IoT use cases; Cybersecurity; Cloud Computing.
All while navigating the minefield of trade wars, limiting exports and tearing up the global supply network. In a world asked to take sides – US vs. China: friend or foe? — can Europe profit by carving out an independent, leading role for itself?
As for Rapid Shifts in Automotive: fast growing electrification, sensors, in-vehicle processing and communication are producing a boom in semiconductor content that will last for decades. How is this impacted by slower auto sales and fully autonomous vehicle rollout being pushed back in time?
Key topics / Program Sections:
- Industries in Transformation: Enabling Technologies and Their Applications
We will discuss about Industrial Automation / Robotics, Remote Maintenance, Industry 4.0, Automotive; 5G/AI/IoT use cases; Cybersecurity; Cloud Computing.
- Europe’s Role
What can Europe’s role be in a world asked to take sides (US vs. China)? Can Europe lead the way (e.g. as it did on privacy regulations/GDPR)? How to overcome Europe’s Innovation Challenge?
- Rapid Shifts in Automotive
Fast growing electrification, sensors, in-vehicle processing and communication are producing a boom in semiconductor content that will last for decades. How is this impacted by slower auto sales and fully autonomous vehicle rollout being pushed back in time?
A two-day executive conference like no other!
What makes this conference unique is the level of invitees: every year the majority of attendees are always C- and VP-level executives, so you can be assured to join a discussion with other senior decision makers. And with the 25 best speakers in their fields, representing a multitude of perspectives — industry insiders and outsiders, large companies and startups, from Europe, US and Asia. Big minds to help us see the big picture and put it all together.
This event is more than one-of-a-kind content; it’s an opportunity to participate to a high-level discussion and connect with other leaders in the industry.
Networking is facilitated by our dedicated networking app and happens — by chance or purpose — in the many networking opportunities during the entire event. Including at one of the highlights: the VIP networking reception and dinner. You will have the opportunity to dine with the brightest in the industry at the futuristic BMW World, the top tourist attraction in Munich and Bavaria.
Day 1: 11:45 – 22:00
Day 2: 8:00 – 14:30
Register Today and take advantage of this unique opportunity to meet, greet, and explore with your peers the technologies that will propel our industry through its next stages of growth.
