Strategies for Manufacturing Excellence in Challenging Markets – Leadership Events


While recent years have featured significant market shifts, external pressures remain an enduring feature for manufacturers – whether in the form of inflation, regulation, fluctuations in supply chain or customer demand.

Yet, market intelligence predicts that we will see further resilience, economic developments, and advancements in these industries in 2024 and beyond, not least where sustainability meets digitalisation.

When organisations embrace transformative strategies in the face of operational uncertainty, they position themselves in the best place to drive consistent success above and beyond their competitors, in terms of cost savings and wider business improvements.

As part of Siemens Advanta, Vendigital has unparalleled access to deep domain knowledge, advanced technology, and a global partner ecosystem.

To help businesses meet these challenges, we are running a series of free events for senior decision makers. These will provide:

Market intelligence from the front-line including operational opportunities and threats

Successful strategies for cost transformation and innovation

A peer-to-peer community to hear your concerns and offer expert advice

Real world examples to highlight best practice

Live Webinars

Creating a competitive advantage in carbon and cost

27th June 2024
10:00 to 10:45

Measuring carbon emissions has become a priority for manufacturing businesses. But the process of building a complete picture of emissions, levers and impact can be complex. Through scenario modelling, the true impact on carbon emissions and product can be identified. Once understood, making informed decisions becomes easier – reducing not only carbon, but also cost.

This ​live webinar will include panellists from Vendigital, Siemens and food and beverage manufacturing.


• How to get visibility of your carbon emissions by breaking down your manufactured products

• How a granular understanding can help you innovate, strategise, and make better decisions

• Why cutting carbon in your operations can also help you cut cost

• Sustainability and decarbonisation opportunities for manufacturing businesses
