LAS VEGAS, NEV.
SESSION: The Economic Impact of the Equipment Manufacturing Industry
PRESENTER: Association of Equipment Manufacturers senior vice-president of government and industry relations Kip Eideberg
HE SAYS: “Our industry is a global industry, and equipment made in the United States and Canada relies on components not just made in North America but from around the world. That is probably the biggest challenge our industry faces, figuring out how to use sourced parts and components in creative ways. How do you reposition components from one line of products to go into another line of products?”
SESSION: The Digital Revolution for Our Productivity Crisis
PRESENTER: Gearflow founder and CEO Luke Powers
HE SAYS: “It has been hard to innovate in our space. That lack of innovation has really caused processes to not change all that much compared to other sectors. How to address that and pull the entire trend line up? I believe the future is an orchestra of technology…there is no one silver bullet to get there.”
