The annual ARC Industry Forum Asia titled Accelerating Industrial Digital Transformation and Sustainability, from July 12-14, 2022, is once again going digital! The world as we knew it has changed and new business models have emerged. As we return to a new normal, industrial innovation is accelerating. A renewed focus on sustainability, the circular economy, and climate change is sparking innovation and powering transformational and technological change across industries. ARC’s Asia Forum will run on two parallel language tracks – English and Japanese. Executive speakers from several industries will share their experiences in digital transformation, future automation architectures, sustainability initiatives, industrial cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, and asset performance management.

The virtual format features more global executive speakers and end user participation than ever before. Instead of hosting separate Forums across Asia it is more practical to host a combined virtual Asia Forum and pool our resources to structure an agenda that is informative and reflects the volatile business environment.

Digital Transformation and Sustainability

ARC’s Global Forums

ARC’s recent virtual Forums in the USA and Europe focused on industrial digital transformation and sustainability, and this will be the recurring theme at the Asia Forum too.  It is clear that companies that have adopted digital technologies are seeing business improvements and surging ahead. The last two years have taught us that digital technologies are critically important for companies to function effectively with reduced staff during a crisis.

Pandemic Lessons

We’d like to believe that the worst phase of the pandemic is over and what we are experiencing now are the dregs. Still, there are pockets of infection and fear lurks. The new normal created by the pandemic impacted companies and propelled them to respond faster and become more agile and operationally resilient. It is now imperative to leverage technologies for remote operations, collaborate across geographies, and improve project outcomes. The competitive distance between those capable of leveraging digital technology and their less digitally evolved peers has dramatically increased. The pandemic forced organizations to restructure work processes (remote operations, social spacing and so on), and fueled concerns about plant operations, maintenance, and fulfilling market demands. During these tough times, operational resilience has become all-important.

We value the support of our sponsors, and they in turn look forward to virtually meeting and interacting with a global audience:
