GMIS has gone Digital – the new format will host a sequence of weekly Digital Series in the lead up to the full-day Virtual Summit

#GMIS2020

The third edition of the Global Manufacturing and Industrialisation Summit (#GMIS2020) will be held virtually, commencing with a sequence of Digital Series on June 30, 2020, and leading up to the Virtual Summit that will be held on September 4-5, 2020.

At the top of the virtual edition agenda will be the digital restoration – how 4IR technologies are helping to restore the global economy and overcome unprecedented challenges. Under the theme – Glocalisation: Towards Sustainable and Inclusive Global Value Chains, #GMIS2020 will virtually, for the very first time, bring together high-profile thought-leaders and business pioneers from around the world to shape the future of manufacturing, discuss the impact of pandemics on global value chains, and highlight the role of fourth industrial revolution (4IR) technologies in restoring economic and social activities.

 

Digital Series

 

Topics that will be discussed by experts at the #GMIS2020 Digital Series include managing health and safety in the workplace during a global crisis; addressing cybersecurity concerns as a result of increased online activity; harnessing AI to support decision making in factories and encourage the shift towards robotics to protect the workforce from exposure to health risks; and the integration of the Internet of Things with Big Data to monitor and control the spread of any potential pandemic.

The #GMIS2020 Virtual Summit in September will address how the disruption of global value chains (GVCs) is forcing a fundamental rethink by manufacturers to become more resilient in the future. Digitalisation is transforming GVCs by creating a new digital thread that allows for advanced systems of traceability and improved logistics and planning. The sessions will explore how the adoption of 4IR technologies, localising production capabilities and capacity building, and spreading inclusive and sustainable development will all be critical to the future of GVCs.

GMIS Connect is the Global Manufacturing and Industrialisation Summit’s international roadshow programme.

Strategically held in some of the world’s leading manufacturing hubs, GMIS Connect is the starting point in engaging the local manufacturing community with our global partners to discuss trends, opportunities and challenges brought by the fourth industrial revolution. By bringing together governments, local and international manufacturers, start-ups and SMEs, NGOs and academia, the roadshows are a key component in gathering insights and shaping the discussions for the next Global Manufacturing and Industrialisation Summit.
