GrayMatter is bringing the Industrial Leadership Summit to Detroit. 

We're building on the momentum of last year’s rooftop summit in Pittsburgh by bringing together a small group of leaders who hail from different industries but confront many of the same challenges.

From 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. May 22 in Detroit, we will again be on a riverfront with spectacular views and just a short distance from Huntington Place, home of Automate 2023.

Featured leadership speakers at the conference this year include: Gregory Robinson, Former Director, NASA, James Webb Space Telescope; and Shae Birkey, Industry Account Manager, Caterpillar Inc., and technical presentations from 3M, Ericsson, Bosch and other leading companies. 


Do you need a daypass for Automate 2023 (May 23rd)?
