After the game is before the game: The Industry Forum 2024

300 guests from the fields of mechanical and plant engineering, construction and electrical engineering took part in the 22nd Industry Forum in Augsburg

The CADENAS Industry Forum brought together numerous speakers, exhibitors and trade visitors for a joint exchange on the topic of Industry 4.0.

This year's event was held in the spirit of the European Football Championship. The choice of venue could not have been more fitting: More than 300 trade visitors attended the event at the WWK Arena in Augsburg on March 19 & 20. An exciting program of presentations with simultaneous translation awaited the international audience. A total of 30 top-class speakers gave insights into the latest developments, current challenges and innovative solutions in their industries on two stages. Among the exhibitors at this year's event were once again well-known companies such as Zuken E3 GmbH, Resolto Informatik GmbH, TwinStore GmbH and DSC Software AG.

Kick-off in the WWK Arena

On March 19, the Industry Forum entered its 22nd round. Jürgen Heimbach, CEO of CADENAS GmbH, gave a keynote speech to kick off the day's speakers, including Dr. Christian Scheifele, Managing Partner of ISG Industrielle Steuerungstechnik; TwinStore GmbH and Thomas Lang from CADENAS, as well as Andreas Brandauer from Siemens AG and Joachim Frank and Bernd Schlenk from Zuken E3 GmbH.

During the lunch break, interested parties had the opportunity to take part in an exclusive tour of the stadium. After a delicious meal, the participants started the second half of the day invigorated and listened to presentations by Sebastian Krohn from Dräger GmbH and Arne Gaiser from DSC Software AG, among others.

The crowning finale was the award ceremony and the subsequent evening event. In a cozy atmosphere and with culinary delicacies. The participants rounded off the evening in the "Kälberhalle" in Augsburg. Soccer enthusiasts were able to prove themselves with table football and other interactive attractions.

Second half

On the second day, there was plenty of opportunity for networking over a tasty breakfast buffet. Exciting specialist presentations followed and the DIAMOND research project presented interim results. The speakers on day two included Karl Osti from Autodesk GmbH, Damian Nowak from Resolto GmbH, Dr. Anna Lukasson-Herzig from Nyris GmbH and Pieter Ruijssenaars CEO of DiManEx.

A success across the board

The 22nd Industry Forum was a great success - concentrated expert knowledge once again found an appropriate stage in 2024. The subsequent Q&A sessions, the exchange with the digitization experts on site and the evening event in a cozy atmosphere made the event something very special.
