The Digital Factory Provides a Roadmap for Digital Transformation
Now in its third year, this May’s Digital Factory conference will be the largest ever. Hosted by Jeff Immelt, the day-long event celebrates manufacturing as the next secret weapon for executives across industries, from aerospace to consumer goods. The Digital Factory will bring together CEOs, technical managers, and supply chain executives who believe digital tools can unlock entirely new business models, with the power to enable mass customization, digital supply chains, and rapid product development.

“I’m excited to host the Digital Factory event with Formlabs,” said Jeff Immelt, venture partner at NEA and Formlabs board member. “This event is a day of empowerment for manufacturing leaders: a showcase for what you can do when you take charge of your technology and turn it into part of your company’s strategy. Every executive needs to think about how manufacturing technology can drive their business.”
