Journey to Automation Awards

Journey to Automation Awards

The inaugural J2A Awards will be staged as part of THE TIRE COLOGNE international trade fair. The awards will culminate in a day of presentations at a forum for short-listed projects.

The announcement of winners will be accompanied by a panel discussion on the future direction of the tire manufacturing and supply-chain sectors in the digital era.

Crain is proud to partner with THE TIRE COLOGNE exhibition. This show is the perfect backdrop for the J2A Awards, which will shine a light on the innovation happening today in the global tire industry.

The J2A Awards winners will be decided by a judging panel comprised of independent experts from both the tire industry and automation sector. They will, firstly, draw up a shortlist of finalists from the entries, based on their potential significance for the tire industry of the future.

With J2A, our goal is to highlight the great work going on around the digitalisation of tire manufacture, design and supply. As well as recognising the companies leading this transformation, we also aim to raise understanding of the pivotal role of IT-based technologies across all activities in an increasingly, interconnected tire world.
