Hannover Fairs USA Announces Digital Industry USA 2019
April 25, 2019
Hannover Fairs USA and Deutsche Messe, the organizers of the world’s largest manufacturing show Hannover Messe and its North American edition, Hannover Messe USA, have announced that Digital Industry USA 2019 has partnered with leading industry associations to provide educational content for conference sessions and expert panels during the inaugural event from Sept. 11-12 in Louisville, Ky. Leading industry association partners include, CSIA (Control System Integrators Association), ISA (International Society of Automation) and MESA (Manufacturing Enterprise Solutions Association) International. During the trade show’s on-floor conference program, industry visionaries will showcase field experiences and case studies that feature real IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) integration across their organizations.
“We have partnered with CSIA, ISA, MESA International and other key industry associations to create customized, dynamic and immersive educational programming for all attendees, whether they are new to Industry 4.0, early adopters or advanced innovators of digitalization in their facilities,” said Adrienne Zepeda, show manager of North American industrial technology events at Hannover Fairs USA (HFUSA), the organizer of Digital Industry USA.
“We encourage attendees to register now to take advantage of our special launch rate for the full trade show experience and on-floor, fee-based conference program.”
“CSIA views the digital transformation as an exciting opportunity for system integrators to increase the value they provide to their industry clients,” said Jose M. Rivera, CEO of CSIA. “The Digital Industry USA 2019 conference program provides a great opportunity for leading manufacturers to meet with peers to share experiences. By teaming up with vendors and system integrators, manufacturers can convert their ‘plant of the future’ visions into reality,” he added.
ISA will provide high-quality technical content to highlight the global industrial cybersecurity standard IEC 62443.
“During our sessions and panel discussions, ISA will illustrate proven standards and methodologies in cybersecurity and will present ideas and solutions to empower manufacturing professionals to reach their digital transformation goals for a fully connected facility,” said William Furlow, director of business development for ISA. “ISA’s presentations will focus on cybersecurity in the automation field and are appropriate for attendees who are either early adopters or IIoT innovators,” he added.
ISA will cover topics such as Evolution of ICS Attacks; Gaining Buy-in and Resources to Manage Cyber Security Risk; Practical Solutions to Supply Chain Attacks; Implementing Cyber Security in a Legacy OT Environment; Combining IT and OT Security Monitoring to Manage the Impact of Cyber Attacks; and Developing a Cyber Workforce.
MESA International’s conference sessions will educate attendees on both the “how” and the “why” to utilize Industry 4.0 to digitize their operations and will provide training and actionable plans for deploying smart factory solutions.
“MESA is a great resource for the smart manufacturing community, and we are bringing our subject matter experts to Digital Industry USA 2019 to share their insights and best-in-class digitalization experiences,” said Brandy Richardson, executive director of MESA International. MESA supports the Hannover Messe, and we are excited to be a part of this new digital industry event in North America,” she added.
