GACC Midwest is excited to announce our annual signature events on October 28, 2016:

Smart Factory Industry Forum


The GACC Awards Gala


SMART FACTORY Industry Forum

The digitization of production affects us all​ - along the entire supply chain. In Germany, the revolution towards an integrated industry is known as Industry 4.0, with Germany leading the way in this fundamental transformation. In the US, we put it simply: using the Industrial internet of things to create the Smart Factory. On October 28, our Smart Factory Industry Forum hosts a content focused discussion of what the Smart Factory means for you. Experts and pioneers will elaborate the growing strategic importance of integrating smart technology into the value chain, and discuss the reality of its implementation for companies of all sizes.

Take a highly visible sponsorship role and represent the future of manufacturing.

    EDOs: Showcase your region as an ideal location for smart factory investment
    MANUFACTURERS: Present yourself as being on the cutting edge and a leader in the age of digital manufacturing
    SERVICE PROVIDERS: New technologies mean new service needs, rethinking options and addressing new risks and opportunities. Show your expertise and how you can support & assist in the transition.
