Event description


Last year, CPCA organised an extensive information session on Industry 4.0 and its impact on the Process Industry. Based on the positive feedback, the association is once again offering the process market an opportunity to learn about advanced process manufacturing, but with a more applied approach. The industry has been talking about the theory for the past two years, come and see how companies now digitalise their process applications.

Attend a one day symposium that includes two keynote speakers and presentations from Process Industry experts on real-life applications within the Process Industry Value Chain and a product exhibit. Topics will include a multitude of Industry 4.0 elements such as Big Data/Analytics, Cloud Computing, Remote Access, IIoT, Cyber Security, Smart Mobility, Virtual/Augmented Reality and Open Communication to name a few.

Discuss applications in more detail during breaks, lunch and post event reception with presenters and other companies displaying their technologies at the exhibition.

Lunch is included, along with networking opportunities during lunch and at the post event reception.

If your organization feels it can contribute to this topic, a presentation slot is still available, or, should you with to exhibit products or services that can help the process market with their digitalisation initiatives, please contact Trish at the CPCA: cpca@cpca-assoc.com or 519-833-7417.
