At Knauf, a leading provider of building materials and construction systems, partnered with EX3 Labs to help digitize their manufacturing and gain a better understanding of emerging technology.
EX3 Labs, along with innovation partner 1871, customized a tech talk and playground to walk Knauf through emerging technologies that are enabling manufacturers to transform their operations. Each station was designed to foster discussion around how technologies could be applied directly to solve Knauf's pain points.
