Making Mobility: Learn how a Digital OEM harnesses disruptive models to meet demand and to unlock new markets
TUESDAY, 6/18, 2:00 pM // TECH THEATER

Most manufacturing systems of today are stuck in the past – they’re inefficient and don’t readily deliver what consumers want or need. This keynote will explore how an innovative digital OEM can meet those needs (such as product customization), unlock new markets, and produce products in a wholly new and agile way by using advanced technology such as 3D printing and locally-based microfactories. Jay Rogers, CEO and Co-Founder of LM Industries, will point to his own experience at the company he leads to bolster this presentation.
