Over the past 17 years, the Innovation Forum for Automation, organized by the Automation Network Dresden (AND), has earned a reputation of providing an excellent opportunity for networking and personal exchange between industry experts. Its member companies (Fabmatics, Kontron AIS, SYSTEMA and XENON) will continue on this path, however, the current situation requires a new approach: a completely digital event. Driven by increasing demand for automation the next steps are dedicated to creating an even more engaging virtual forum.

Hence, the Innovation Forum for Automation will be transformed into a series of digital events in the first four months of 2021. Each of the four partner will host one event, arranging it individually from the agenda up to the technical organization. The link tying it all together is the mission the AND is committed to: Keeping the community connected and up-to-date with new automation trends across high-tech industries and innovative projects.

And what do you get out of it?

A digital AND session every last Thursday of the month from January to April 2021. Each session will be packed with news from the world of automation, exciting insights into the hottest trend topics, and input, input, input.
