Home Join Us for Our 3rd Annual

Connected Plant Conference

February 19-21, 2019
Sheraton Charlotte Hotel, Charlotte, NC

The Connected Plant Conference is the place to share and learn practical information about IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) implementation in industrial environments. Hosted by POWER and Chemical Engineering, the conference specifically addresses topics of interest to the power generation and chemical process industries. Your presenters will explore the fast-paced advances in automation, data analytics, computing networks, “smart” sensors, augmented reality, and other technologies that companies are using to improve their processes and overall businesses in today’s competitive environment.

The Connected Plant Conference, now in its third year, brings together industrial professionals who are leading digital adoption at all stages. In addition to conference sessions designed for general industrial IIOT topics, separate tracks will address more specific concerns for the power generation and chemical process industries. Leaders in the field of digitalization will be honored during our Game Changers Awards luncheon. Highlights from the 2018 event can be found in the post-show report and video.


While some other events may touch on new data-driven analytics products and services, the Connected Plant Conference is the only event focused exclusively on technology designed for the power generation sector.

Chemical Engineering hosts a separate conference track for the chemical process industries. Learn how others are adopting the latest digital technologies for process, product, and enterprise improvements.
