The COVID-19 pandemic is signalling a new era of digital transformation that hinges on better supply chain strategies and increased collaboration, said thought leaders at a Rockwell Automation conference this month.

From Nov. 16 to 20, the company staged its 29th annual Automation Fair – which, for public safety reasons, was a largely virtual event renamed Automation Fair at Home.

Attendees were able to access a full slate of sessions with global thought leaders as well as exhibits showcasing Rockwell products and solutions in a virtual trade show experience. The conference recordings are available online until June 2021.
