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 our exhibitors, as industry experts and partners, will educate our attendees through hands-on demonstrations, workshops and in the booth and on the show floor presentations.

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.
