Looking Forward to ARC Forum

June 3, 2022

The Annual ARC Industry Forum is back in-person in Orlando June 6-9 (and also online through the conference app). Element is excited to sponsor the event again this year, following an engaging virtual experience in 2021. 

The theme for this year’s conference is “Accelerating Industrial Digital Transformation and Sustainability”. There is a packed agenda and plenty of opportunities to learn. Here are 4 things we are looking forward to at the 26th Annual ARC Industry Forum.

1. Factory of the Future is Now! Accelerating the Digital Transformation

Wednesday 6/8 at 2:00 PM EDT

There are several sessions we’re looking forward to and this one tops the list. Bradford Beach, Manager, Operational Excellence, Health Care, Evonik*; will join Jane Arnold, VP, Advanced Manufacturing Technology (Stanley, Black and Decker) and Shawn Mullins, Sr. Director, Digital Manufacturing 4.0 (Pfizer) to discuss how software technology is transforming manufacturing.

Brad—based at the Evonik site in Indiana—will share Evonik’s approach to bringing visibility to plant production systems for improved decision-making and production performance. Four panelists will join the discussion including Steve Beamer from Element. Learn more about the speakers, panelists and ARC moderator here.

*Evonik is an Element customer.

2. ARC Welcome Reception:

ARC will host a welcome reception on Monday, 6/6 from 6-9:00 PM EDT in the Showcase Ballroom. There will be food and drinks and an opportunity to explore the latest technology and solutions available in the market. Stop by booth #14 and say hello to the Element Team. An expert will showcase the Element Unify platform, including capabilities that accelerate the development and deployment of digital twins. Booth visitors can enter a raffle for a chance to win a prize. 

3. Opening Keynote Session:

Dustin Olson, COO at Purecycle Technologies is a Day 1 Keynote speaker. Purecycle Technologies transforms plastic waste feedstock into ultra-pure recycled polypropylene. We’re looking forward to learning how they are innovating and contributing to the circular economy through the adoption of new technologies and processes.

4. Networking:

The ARC Industry Forum conference offers opportunities to learn from your peers through networking as well as learning through workshops, speakers and panelists.

In addition to ARC-hosted activities like The SeaWorld Networking Reception and Dinner and vendor-sponsored breakfasts, there will be private, invite-only social events. If you are lucky enough to get invited, take that and all other opportunities to make connections that will last long after the show comes to an end. 

We hope you have a productive and meaningful show experience and we look forward to seeing you there!
