4:30 P.M. | Grand Riverview Ballroom

It’s no surprise that the smart technologies associated with Industry 4.0 are impacting industries well beyond the factory floor. In today’s ultra-competitive entertainment market, the sports industry must think outside of the box and find innovative ways to connect with fans, improve player health and safety, and win when it counts.

This year’s Integr8 conference will close with a panel focused on the digital transformation in sports. Join panelists from NASCAR and professional Detroit sports teams to discover how this industry is utilizing Industry 4.0 tools to gain a competitive advantage.

Gene Stefanyshyn, senior vice president and chief international officer for NASCAR, will discuss the technologies driving changes at NASCAR. This uniquely American product is experiencing constant improvement and reaching new audiences while gaining in popularity across the globe. Using Big Data, AI, 3D printing and Modeling and Simulation, the already successful model is breaking new ground and enabling opportunities for drivers and fans.

Dan Jaroshewich, senior director of sports events and business development for the Detroit Lions, will discuss how the Lions are leading the NFL in fan analytics with AI and Big Data. Football fans are demanding more data, more analytics and more information every day. With the increased popularity of fantasy sports, fans are engaging with an ownership mentality and want information on demand.

It’s Industry 4.0 game time and we’re here to win!
