The power of IMPACT is now at your fingertips

We’ve hosted 100s of in-person summits, brought together countless executives, facilitated 10,000s of news partnerships, and transformed the manufacturing and R&D landscape. Now, we’re doing it all online.

  • The Best Solution Providers

    Meet one-on-one with the partners best suited to tackle your unprecedented challenges.

  • Over 30 Speakers

    Learn from the leaders driving manufacturing innovation in an ever-changing climate.

  • Exclusive Swag

    Since it isn’t quite safe to treat you to a high class hotel, enjoy some high class swag.

Meet one-on-one with the partners ready for your new challenges

Using the same data-driven matching logic as our in-person events, we take the legwork out of finding new partners. Meet directly with companies vetted specifically for you to confidently tackle your challenges, within your budget and time frame. There is a minimum of 6 meetings, and no maximum.

Hear what industry leaders have to say about today’s new complexities
