Digitalising Manufacturing 2018 Grasping the opportunity

Digitalising Manufacturing 2018 Grasping the opportunity

Leading change and capitalising on the benefits across industry

Building on last year's sellout conference, a key area of focus for 2018 will be impact and progress. One year on from Prof. Juergen Maier's launch of the Made Smarter review at our conference, where do we stand and what has changed? We will be welcoming our headline speaker Prof. Maier back to the MTC to find out how the Made Smarter vision is becoming a reality.

We also welcome keynote speaker Marcus Burton, director at Yamazaki Mazak and a member of the Made Smarter leadership team, who will give delegates an industry perspective on the expected impact of the initiative.

We'll be keeping the international aspect of the conference too, focusing on what we can learn from Germany, France, Italy and other key players, and how the UK can use this information to make quick progress on the digitalisation journey.

Key topics:

  • Progress
  • International benchmarking
  • Talent and society
  • And much more...
Highlights:
  • Keynote speeches
  • Expert panels
  • Networking dinner
  • Digital manufacturing demonstrators
  • Gold sponsor workshop sessions
  • All-day exhibition space accompanied by refreshments and networking

Our early bird tickets are available until 30 June 2018. We're anticipating another sell out, so book early to secure your place.
