SALES - SHOWCASE

Sustainable Manufacturing: Connecting Products, People, Planet and Profit

22nd February 2023, America and Europe 10:00 - 13:00 EDT | 16:00 - 19:00 CET
IN PARTNERSHIP

In the world of manufacturing, we see the impact of unprecedented market conditions such as pandemics, political crises, and labor imbalances. We are required to adapt to the unpredictable, acting with flexibility to continuously provide products and services that enhance people’s lives and deliver new business value.

Manufacturer’s priorities have changed with the rapid onslaught of unpredictable events combined with the additional pressures of having to deal with the increasing high risk of cyber threats, pressure to have competitive sustainability credentials, the difficulty of attracting and retaining experienced, digitally skilled employees. How can today’s manufacturers keep up? And what about tomorrow?

Join Fujitsu and a group of your industry peers as we explore these, and other top-of-mind challenges manufacturers are facing. In this Virtual Showcase, you’ll share your own experiences, plus hear how best-in-class organizations are transforming with digital innovation. Walk away with new ideas to bring forth positive change to our environment, society, and economies.
