Swiss Leaders Dialog Industry 4.0 connects pioneering CxOs in the fields of corporate strategy, digitalization, technology, R&D, IT and production, as well as scientists and solution providers to discuss ideas and projects on the road to industrial IoT and new digital business models

Leading Industry 4.0 summit in Switzerland. Key players discuss digitization and business models. Smart factories, connected products and intelligent supply chains revolutionize the economies. From product to service? From bulk production to customization and batch size 1? From owned to shared resources? From humans to robots? You'll find answers at Swiss Leaders Dialog. Train yourself and your organisation for Industry 4.0. Swiss Leaders Dialog is not a typical conference. It’s all about personal meetings with peers, consultants and experts. You may select meeting partners in our internal matchmaking platform, or be selected. The matchmaking shows the overleaps between interests and competencies. A very efficient exchange of experiences, ideas, solutions and strategic aspects. Our networking format delivers business knowledge and relevant contacts in the shortest possible amount of time.
