Posted 26 February 2019 · Add Comment

The third edition of the Industry 4.0 Summit & Expo taking place once more in Manchester, on the 10th and 11th of April, will highlight why and how to invest in the fourth industrial revolution.

It is billed as the UK’s largest event for the fourth industrial revolution and a one stop show to see the latest technologies & solutions to make manufacturing smarter.

A combined conference (Summit) and trade exhibition, the event attracts manufacturers looking to gain knowledge on how to adopt new management strategies to help improve their operations, as well as see the latest technologies to make this happen. The event also acts an opportunity to seek advice and finance from government, meet industry associations and to network with over 2,000 attendees from 40 countries.

Speaker confirmed include Stephen Phipson, CEO of MAKEUK, the manufacturer’s association, Brian Holliday, Managing Director, Siemens Digital Factory, Donna Edwards, Programme Director for the government’s Made Smarter North West pilot, Andy Schofield, Manufacturing & Materials Strategy and Technology, BAE Systems – AIR, plus speakers from ADCO USA, Gulfstream, Mondelez, Trak‐Rap, EDF Energy, Dassault Systemes, Dell Technologies and others at the sharp end of digital transformation.

The Summit provides manufacturers with a comprehensive overview of industry 4.0, with insights on why to invest in industry 4.0, how to do so step‐by‐step, the real skills & training needed in this fourth industrial revolution, digital twins, understanding the new energy landscape as well as plenty of case studies of industry 4.0 in action.

Registered attendees so far include senior level management from PepsiCo, Merck, Ford, Siemens, Boeing, Asahi Breweries, RS Components, Rolls Royce & National Grid.

A key focus of the summit is engagement with SMEs and involving them in discussions and providing them with the ideas & tools to help them start their own digital transformation. The organisers will have a special SME clinic onsite to answer questions on industry 4.0 and to connect them with experts to guide them on the right path.
Expert advice will be provided by KTN, Innovate and Made Smarter.

Event Director Gary Gilmour comments “Our event attracts visitors across the manufacturing spectrum eager to get a better understanding of how to adopt industry 4.0 and then put this into practice. Our event provides knowledge and solutions, and plenty of case studies from companies who have already started their digital transformation.

"We’ve made a real effort to attract more SMEs to the show Over 15% of attendees have purchasing authority of more than £500k, which we believe reflects that senior management will only attend a couple of important events a year, this being one.”
Within the free‐to‐attend EXPO halls, visitors will be able to see not just the latest technologies and solutions but also interact in with many of the features taking place.
