AGMA Announces Paul Boris as a Keynote Speaker for Gear Expo 2017

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                   

Alexandria, VA- Paul Boris, COO of Vuzix, is one of three keynote speakers who will be presenting at Gear Expo 2017, THE Technology Show, in Columbus, Ohio, October 24-26. Boris is an expert in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and how manufacturers now have the ability, even with minor investment, to have IIoT projects in their factories that can provide actionable results. He will be discussing IIoT in his presentation: The Industrial IoT is Here – and Manufacturers at ALL Levels Can Implement and Find ROI Quickly on Tuesday at the Solution Center from 1:00-2:00pm.

Boris first spoke to the AGMA audience during an Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) panel at this year’s Annual Meeting. Due to the popularity of his presentation, AGMA recognized the companies at Gear Expo would appreciate the innovative energy Boris has and would benefit from the direct impact of his knowledge.

“His knowledge and passion for the IIoT movement will bring a whole new level of emerging technology to Gear Expo,” explains Jenny Blackford, Vice President of Marketing. “He will focus on the value proposition of IIoT for all manufacturers, regardless of size and provide tangible take-aways that can be implemented into plants to begin or further businesses’ IIoT strategy.”

Boris joined Vuzix after spending three years at General Electric in executive leadership roles including CIO of Advanced Manufacturing Strategy, where he focused on driving GE's innovative factory strategy to increase productivity and deliver the optimization of assets and operations across 400+ facilities.  Boris defined and enabled General Electric's commercial strategy for Brilliant Manufacturing by working with companies to accelerate their own digital transformation. 

Gear Expo attendees represent a variety of industries including industrial applications, automotive, agriculture, aerospace and construction.  They come from around the United States, international manufacturing hubs, and emerging markets to conduct profitable business transactions and learn about the innovations that make their operations more streamlined. Boris will be able to provide some insight on the ever-expanding IIoT market and how it will best fit their business model.
