2023 SAP Manufacturing
Info Days

February 7–8, 2023
SAP Experience Center, Newtown Square

We are excited to announce the third in our series of Customer/Partner Info Days to be held at our Newtown Square, PA offices. This event will center on the Manufacturing Pillar with select partners, customer testimonials, panel discussions on important trends, and innovations in digital manufacturing today.

The event will begin on Tuesday morning and feature multiple topic tracks for you to select based on your areas of interest, and wrap up on Wednesday with lunch. As with previous Info Days, we will offer tours of the Industry 4.0 Showcase Hub. We will display SAP’s end-to-end manufacturing capabilities and solutions interacting with working machines, tools, and equipment for both discrete and process manufacturing. All told, this provides a more immersive experience to smart factory technology with Industry 4.0.
