It’s Time To Start Your Digital Transformation Journey

July 31, 2017
Machines communicating with other machines promise to transform how chemical makers handle asset management.

Congrats on taking the first step toward digital transformation.

While the movement toward the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) has already started taking place in the chemical industry, there’s a long road ahead toward complete adoption. Indeed, we recently asked our readers if they currently utilize IIoT within their operations and 67% said no. Even with the large investments in digitization being made by so many industry giants, there are significant hurdles that need to be overcome for the benefits of automation and IIoT to be captured in the chemical industry.

That's why the editors of Chemical Processing would like to personally invite you and your colleagues to attend Putman's 3rd annual Smart Industry conference on Sept. 18-20 in Chicago.

Our event gives you the opportunity to learn and engage with first-mover organizations on the leading edge of digital transformation, as well as attend presentations from IIoT innovators, such as our two keynotes, Tom Bucklar, director of innovation and digital for Caterpillar and Steve Jones, process and material consultant for Steelcase. Smart Industry also offers the opportunity to see the latest digital technologies in action on behind the-scenes tours.

Not sure why you should attend? Here are myriad reasons including a money-back guarantee.


We would love to have as many chemical-industry folks there joining us as possible! Editors will be available throughout the conference for meetings and would love to talk to you about your company's digital initiatives for an upcoming editorial piece. Hope to see you in September!
