Digitalising Manufacturing 2019

Digitalising Manufacturing 2019

After a sell-out conference in 2018, we are delighted to announce the dates for Digitalising Manufacturing Conference 2019. Join us on the 4th & 5th November 2019 for our fifth annual conference, and gain the know-how you need from worldwide leading experts.

Over the last four years the Digitalising Manufacturing Conference has grown to become one of the key dates in the manufacturing calendar, with the emphasis evolving from technology through collaboration to people and the concept that digitalisation is not an end goal but a journey. 

Join us on the 4th & 5th November 2019 for our fifth annual conference, and gain the know-how you need from worldwide leading experts.

This year we're making digital a reality. We're partnered with Made Smarter to bring you a two-day conference that will address international collaboration opportunities, national policy as well as practical knowledge to drive industrial digitalisation from within UK value chains. Day one will focus on policy, international, national and industry perspectives, while on day two we'll look at moving forwards and putting plans into action - addressing the 'why?', 'what?' and 'how?' questions surrounding digital manufacturing.

We’ll review the continued progress of the Made Smarter initiative and other mechanisms, and we’ll be keeping the international aspect of the conference too – focusing on what we can learn from countries such as Germany and Sweden.

This year our focus is on making digital a reality. So new for Digitalising Manufacturing 2019 we will be introducing the MTC’s Digital Experience. Held on day two of the conference, the entire ground floor of our venue will be transformed into our largest digital manufacturing exhibition yet. The digital experience will be split into zones focusing on our four core day two topics: 

  • Smart connected factory
  • Connected and versatile supply chain
  • Design, test, make
  • Adaptable, flexible manufacturing operations and skills

The packed two-day programme will also feature insightful panel discussions; interactive workshops; innovation pitches and digital manufacturing demonstrators - making this the 'must-attend' conference on this topic in the UK.

Look out for further information and updates on the programme, our speakers and sponsors over the coming months.
