The subject will be at the heart of the conference, which takes place in Düsseldorf on 14 and 15 September 2016. The plenary lecture will focus on radically new business models taking shape thanks to digitalization and will be delivered by Dr. Oliver Grün, founder and managing partner of German software provider GRÜN Software AG.
 
Dr Grün will show how digital technologies can provide new opportunities to produce enhanced value and drive up revenue streams, throughout the chain of activities. He will explore the extent to which digital business models have entered the world of pumps and compressors, and that of their customers, for example, in the process industry. This new business approach will be a key enabler to achieve further progress on traditional pump and compressor topics such as sustainability of products, better reliability and enhanced energy efficiency.
 
 The 3rd International Rotating Equipment Conference – Pumps, Compressors and Vacuum Technology is organized by VDMA Pumps + Systems as well as VDMA Compressors, Compressed Air and Vacuum Technology. It will take place in the Congress Center, Düsseldorf, Germany.
