Hexagon announces two special guest speakers for HxGN LIVE 2019

June 3, 2019 - Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence division announced two special guest speakers for the Manufacturing Intelligence track keynote at the 2019 edition of HxGN LIVE, Hexagon’s digital solutions conference. Division President Norbert Hanke will be joined on stage by Doug Woods, President of AMT – The Association For Manufacturing Technology, and Erik Josefsson, Vice President, Head of Advanced Industries at Ericsson, for the ‘Smart is Hiding in Plain Sight’ presentation exploring the road to the Smart Factory.

During the keynote, Norbert Hanke will lead attendees on a search for ‘smart’ – challenging manufacturers to find the data in their factories and put it to work. Doug Woods will share his insights on the state of the manufacturing industry, assessing its readiness for digital transformation and discussing the risks and rewards of pursuing a smart manufacturing strategy. The session will then focus on establishing a practical route to the Smart Factory by looking at the imperatives for success and exploring the enabling technologies driving this trend. Here, Erik Josefsson will bring his expert knowledge of 5G connectivity for industry, explaining why it holds so much potential for manufacturing and showing how businesses can get started with this technology today.

HxGN LIVE 2019 takes place June 11-14 at The Venetian, Las Vegas, NV. The event brings together industry experts and thought leaders in six tracks aligned to Hexagon’s cross-vertical business areas – Manufacturing Intelligence, Geospatial, Geosystems, Mining, PPM and Safety & Infrastructure. The Manufacturing Intelligence track keynote takes place in the Venetian Ballroom on Wednesday June 12 at 1:30 p.m. (PDT) and will also be live streamed on HxGN TV.
