Throughout history, technological advances have led to industrial revolutions that have redefined how society, business and economy function.

Industry has evolved from the mechanisation of processes to the use of information as a key element of optimisation.Now, the new Smart Industry 4.0 contemplates how to use real-time information to reconsider industrial processes.

Discover, from the industrial sector’s perspective:

  • What the new production models are for this new industry and the implications and challenges that will arise.
  • How business models are changing to adapt to the digital age.
  • How management, organisation and HR models adapt in response to new needs.
  • How the development of new technologies brings new opportunities to your value chain.
  • Success stories which provide clear examples and help to draw up courses of action in the sector.
  • Windows of opportunity for your company, through specialised workshops.

To help you take the initiative, the price includes a 4-day accreditation for the Mobile World Congress, where you will take a guided tour of the stands of a selection of companies offering the most innovative solutions for industry 4.0.
