Digital Transformation

This page lists events (conferences, exhibitions, etc.) related to digital transformation. Emphasis is given to SPE events, although other events, including those from commercial event organizers, may provide learning and networking opportunities.

Events organized by the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC), with which SPE has a liaison agreement, are also highlighted. The first three days of IIC events are reserved for member company personnel, while the fourth day only is open to non-members. The possibility of greater access to SPE members who are not employees of an IIC member company is under discussion.

Listing an event on this page does not constitute an endorsement by SPE or by the authors/editors of this page, or a guarantee of the quality of the event.
