LIVESTREAMING from Rottweil on 25.11.2020

Welcome to the Virtual Conference Europe!

United by the slogan “Challenges and Opportunities for Future Technology Trends” and with focus topics including Electrification, Digitalization and Sustainability, Trelleborg Sealing Solutions invites you to join our Virtual Conference Europe 2020.

Virtual, yet livestreamed from the thyssenkrupp Elevator Test Tower in Rottweil, Germany, our team including moderator, keynote speakers and industry experts will allow you to interact remotely through a unique virtual environment.

Join us for your opportunity to discover and discuss key challenges and abilities for future technology trends affecting the engineering and manufacturing sectors.

Electrification

The Future of Mobility in an Electrified World

Electrification is booming. Cities are getting smarter and innovative mobility services spread across the world. In the future, emerging technologies and wireless connectivity will allow for more sustainable, efficient and flexible travel. These markets are extremely dynamic and are developing at an alarmingly high speed. This is a challenge for OEMs and the entire supply chain as often neither clearly defined standards nor established solutions are available. As a result, the required innovation rate and the pressure to bring the right products to market quickly are extremely high.

This session will tackle the challenges of electrification and how AI, data lakes, connectivity and smart cities can help to drive a new era of sustainable mobility.

Digitalization

Artificial Intelligence – How to Be Part of a Smarter Ecosystem

Artificial intelligence, IOT, networking and smart data - the complexity of these subjects is increasing just as rapidly as the budgets to support them. With positive digital transformation, businesses can save time and resources in the long term. State-of-the-art digital processes make it possible to develop prototypes in the virtual world, while artificial intelligence can help to solve problems independently.

This session will highlight how digitalization can help businesses optimize their value chain in the long term.

Sustainability

Engineering Towards a More Sustainable Future

The future world is projected to be inevitably resource and carbon constrained. OEMs are increasingly including sustainability in their wider business strategy to increase growth and global competitiveness. From increasing operational efficiency by reducing waste, to strengthening brand and business reputation, sustainable manufacturing can provide tangible benefits to the engineering industry.

This session aims to address manufacturing sustainability in a coordinated, integrated and formalized manner.

The Location

Our Livestreaming Location is truly a one-of-a-kind: the thyssenkrupp Elevator Test Tower in Rottweil, Germany. Based near thyssenkrupp’s elevator research campus, it houses the world’s first rope-less elevator that can move both horizontally as well as vertically. With an impressive height of 246 metres, the integrated panoramic elevator and dizzying speeds of up to 18 m/s make this building and its integrated technology an exceptional location.

Don’t miss this truly exceptional combination of livestreaming keynote speakers, inspiring panel discussions and a truly unique location. We will transform all of this into an interactive conference location so that you will not only experience a digital event - but feel as if you were actually there in person!
