VirtualConnect offers real-time access to technical specialists and interactive video presentations to enhance manufacturing productivity of industrial companies.

To help industrial companies understand how technology can solve strategic and operational challenges, Rockwell Automation is launching a series of free, online events, called VirtualConnect. The first event, 12 May, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Central European Time, includes specialized learning schedules, peer-to-peer and peer-to-expert networking, and the chance to ‘walk’ the digital show floor.

“Digital transformation will continue to evolve and provide endless opportunities to enhance the way we work, both on and off the plant floor,” said Nathan Turner, director, Integrated Architecture, Rockwell Automation. “Our VirtualConnect event is a great example of how industry can be agile and embrace digital experiences to maintain ongoing learning without physical travel.”

The  agenda  details sessions and topics, including:

  • How to solve critical manufacturing issues through Connected Services
