The Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) is giving entrepreneurs, technologists and inventors the chance to pitch their innovative ideas on factory digitalisation to the UK's manufacturing decision makers at our Digitalising Manufacturing Conference on 4th & 5th November 2019.



The Innovation Pitches initiative is being run in conjunction with the Digital Catapult - the UK's leading centre connecting start-ups and scale-ups to solve real industrial challenges. Each application will be judged by a panel of experts from technology and manufacturing sectors. The best applicants will be invited to take one of the conference innovation pitch slots.


Successful innovators and companies will have the opportunity to give an elevator pitch to the audience, which will be made of industry leaders, as well as representatives from SMEs and OEMs. They also have the chance to demonstrate their technology at the conference 'digital experience', as part of a digital manufacturing story. 


Further to the conference, innovators chosen to make the pitches at the conference will be offered access to MTC's experts, to help them bring their ideas to market. This is a fantastic opportunity with proven success stories, including a pitch from last year who was connected with manufacturers and is currently in the process of securing further funding. 


Some of Europe’s leading experts on the digital revolution sweeping through manufacturing industry will join forces at the conference aimed at helping UK manufacturers embrace the latest digital technologies.
