The 2017 AWFS fair will feature a new showcase highlighting Industry 4.0 and the technology that will heavily influence the future of manufacturing including artificial intelligence; augmented and virtual reality; robotics; 3-D printing; cloud computing; Internet of Things (IOT) and Internet of Services (IOS).
The 4.0 showcase will be located on the show floor near the Visionary New Product Award showcases. In addition, exhibitors participating in the showcase will also be highlighted in the AWFS website, the official show directory and have designated markers for Industry 4.0 products in their booths.
“We really wanted to highlight Industry 4.0 and the technology that has had an impact on manufacturing for several years now and let our attendees know how they can take advantage of this technology today, as well as what they can expect in the future,” AWFS trade show chairman Rob Howell said in a statement.
Industry 4.0 educational sessions will be featured as part of the show’s College of Woodworking Knowledge.
