THE DX Format

PI DX is our closed-door dialogue forum for business leaders in the manufacturing industry, focused on reshaping value propositions by developing outcome-based and customer-centric business models.

Keynote Presentations and Panels

The backbone of the event are the C-suite keynotes and panels. These discussion-led sessions provide opportunity for manufacturers to explore the disruptive opportunities and challenges posed by digitization.

PowerPoint Free

PI DX is a 100% PowerPoint free event, with the focus on dialogue and engagement with peers. This creates a truly interactive and engaging environment.

Invitation Networking

As well as informal networking, the event portal and app allows attendees to arrange in advance, 1-to-1 meetings with other attending executives. There are dedicated slots across the 2 days for these pre-arranged networking sessions.


There is no tradeshow or exhibition at this event. We invite a small number of vendor partners, who represent a crucial element of the discussion, but the event is manufacturer-led and free from solicitation and pitching. As a closed-door event, there are no members of the press. This encourages open but confidential discussion.



The city is a major centre of art, technology, finance, publishing, culture, innovation, education, business, and tourism in Germany and Europe and enjoys a very high standard and quality of living, reaching first in Germany and fourth worldwide according to the 2015 Mercer survey. According to the Globalization and World Rankings Research Institute Munich is considered an alpha-world city, as of 2015.
