Co-bots, robots, and Industry 4.0. You’ve heard about some of the technologies around automation, but what about real-world results? Who’s automating their operations, and what kind of return on investment are they seeing? Enough with the hype. What’s in it for your business?

Come meet experts with practical solutions for manufacturers like you. FuzeHub’s first Manufacturing Expo of 2022 is all about automation, but it’s really about getting results. Plus, it’s all under one virtual roof. That’s why you’ll also find supporting I4.0 technologies like AR, VR, sensors, and software there.

This virtual event isn’t just another Zoom meeting. Remo, our online platform, spurs interaction. You’ll hear from keynote speakers and panelists, but you also get to network in a tradeshow-like format.

This event is organized by FuzeHub and co-hosted with Buffalo Manufacturing Works (BMW), the Alliance for Manufacturing and Technology (AMT), and Insyte Consulting.
