Dedham, MA (PRUnderground) March 26th, 2020

ARC Advisory Group is pleased to announce that to support the critical social distancing requirements brought on by the COVID-19 crisis, the annual ARC European Industry Forum, “Driving Digital Transformation in Industry,” May 18-20, 2020, will move online as ARC’s first-ever virtual forum.  The event will use the most advanced virtual event tools available to offer live streaming of user presentations, expert panel discussions, and audience interaction.

Overcoming Impact of Coronavirus on Industry Events

According to Forum manager, David Humphrey, “The current situation with the coronavirus led us to re-invent our European Forum as a virtual event. There is a feeling of solidarity in the industry right now that if we are creative and flexible, we can overcome this unfortunate disruption and minimize its impact on our lives and our businesses“

“We have redesigned the agenda around industry theme-blocks of 90-minutes each, “ Humphrey explained. “We feel that this format allows us to deliver the same content, but it in a format that is suitable for viewing online. The only thing we had to leave out is our evening dinner in a picturesque Mediterranean fishing village!”

Driving Digital Transformation in Industry

Consistent with the event theme, topics at this year’s Virtual Forum will include:

  • 21st Century Operations: Where IT, OT and ET Converge
  • AI and Machine Learning
  • Asset Performance Management
  • Automation Innovations
  • Cybersecurity and Safety

In a special session for automation suppliers, ARC analysts  and a guest financial analyst will present their views on the state of automation markets. One presentation will share ARC analysts’ forecast of the impact of the coronavirus on these markets.

Global Participation Encouraged

In consideration of the new virtual format, ARC had reduced the attendee fee.  Combined with the associated travel and lodging savings, this should make it practical for industry participants around the world to “attend” the 2020 ARC European Industry Forum. This could provide an especially attractive option for those who were not able to attend the recent ARC Industry Forum in Orlando, Florida due to travel restrictions. While all speaker slots are filled, sponsorship opportunities are still available.
