Digital Industry USA

Digital Industry USA 2019, September 11-12  |  Kentucky International Convention Center (KICC), Louisville, KY



The manufacturing industry is changing, and the needs of your customers are changing as well.  Digital Industry USA will be curating technologies, education and displays in order to address the various needs, know-how and level of adoption of US manufacturers.  Our platform will demonstrate the digital industry ecosystem and how various technologies are connected.  We will facilitate interaction and present our exhibitors as industry experts and partners through hands-on demonstrations, workshops and in the booth and on the show floor education.

Organized by Hannover Fairs USA and Deutsche Messe, we are tapping into the HANNOVER MESSE global network of experts and technology providers in order to provide our attendees with a comprehensive view of the digitization process, various case studies, and best practices.

“This new event will be a great service to the manufacturing community including both discrete and process industries.”

-          Bill Lydon, Chief Editor of, InTech Magazine, Automation Industry Expert & Consultant

“Creating a trade show and educational conference which is focused more intently on the increasing needs of IIoT and Industry 4.0 is so crucial.  This area will continue to grow at an astounding rate over the next 10 years as it is easily the single biggest challenge facing the manufacturing and industrial environments today.”

-          Brian Pitzer, Global VP, Nicola Industrial & Manufacturing Solutions

“DIG/IN USA 2019 offers attendees the opportunity to identify the products and make the contacts necessary to further their automation goals. With the growth of automation in small and medium sized companies who may not have the engineering or IT resources to identify the right components to produce a complete solution, a “one stop shop” with education offerings will be a very valuable opportunity.”

-          Shawn Lawrence, Product Marketing Manager, HIWIN Corporation USA

“I’m pleased to hear that Hannover Fairs USA is planning a new, immersive IIoT trade event that attracts highly automated companies, as well as those wanting to be more competitive, analytical and interconnected.”

-          Mark Gallant, Senior Director of Marketing IoT Manufacturing Solutions, PTC
