Dubai, United Arab Emirates, June 30, 2021 – Schneider Electric, the leader in digital transformation of energy management and automation, will be hosting its 2021 Innovation Day on 6th July 2021.

“Digitisation empowers us to gain our edge, stay competitive and thrive in the new normal.

Commenting on the upcoming Innovation Day 2021 for Pacific, Ziad Youssef Middle East and Africa Vice President of Secure Power and Segments at Schneider Electric said, “The journey to sustainability begins with digitisation. Business and IT leaders need to see this as an opportunity to build resilience into their strategy, allowing their company to move towards goals such as net-zero energy, and net-zero carbon. While these ambitious targets were once markers of a sustainable business, they are now markers of a smart business”.

Participants can also learn about the latest solutions from Schneider Electric such as the Galaxy VL and the EcoStruxure Micro Data Center 43U, as well as take on practical sessions covering the latest on how to implement tomorrow’s solutions today. There will also be breakout sessions and networking opportunities for IT and data centre professionals, IT solution providers, as well as facility managers and electrical consultants and contractors.

Schneider Electric’s Innovation Day tours hosted up to 8,000 attendees in the previous years. In 2020, the event focused on digitisation in building and driving resiliency in the wake of the changing landscape.
