EPLAN, PILZ, Rittal and WAGO – four leading companies in automation and advanced manufacturing, based in Canada with their headquarters in Germany – are hosting the first German Technology Days.

The German Technology Days will take place at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Mississauga on November 19, and at Crowne Plaza in Kitchener on November 21. The focus of these events will be understanding the impact of Industry 4.0 in Canada, and highlighting the challenges brought forward by the paradigm shift taking place in the industry today.

Highlights include Gurvinder Chopra, VP, Standards & Regulations at Electro-Federation Canada, who will present the luncheon keynote, The Synergy between Innovation and Standardization.

Three lucky attendees have a chance to win the opportunity to an all-expenses paid trip to Germany to attend the Hannover Messe 2020, and tour these companies’ cutting-edge Industry 4.0 manufacturing facilities

The German Technology Days will include a series of interesting presentations from thought leaders in each of these companies, and attendees will have the option of attending either the morning or afternoon sessions. The luncheon keynote will be open to participants of both morning and afternoon sessions.
