A lot has changed over the past several months. For the manufacturing industry, the changes have been sudden and drastic, with many manufacturers forced to shut down operations, while others had to find ways to continue their essential work. A lot still remains uncertain, and as we look forward to 2021, the question on everyone’s minds is: what’s next?

Join us for the 2020 Cisco Manufacturing Virtual Summit where industry leaders will discuss the recent impacts on manufacturing, how manufacturers are responding, and what comes next. The summit, which takes place on November 9-10, is open to Cisco customers, partners, and employees. This two-day forum will provide the opportunity to learn about industry trends in business resiliency and gain insight into industrial security.
