Why attend? | Manufacturing Innovation Summit

The only viable future for UK manufacturing is agile, high-margin and export-oriented businesses whose people, processes and systems are focused on fast-changing customer requirements and delivering transformational innovation.

Manufacturing Innovation Summit 2018 saw 75 future-facing manufacturers from across the sector come together to explore how technology – particularly digital technology – is helping to grow margins and boost growth by compressing innovation and development cycles.

The Summit’s innovative format revolved around a series of intimate roundtable discussions, enabling decision-makers to sit next to their peers and topic experts and have their questions answered first-hand.

Delegates can choose which discussion table to join from the available topics and each discussion lasts 30-minutes – enabling them to participate in five different discussions during the course of the conference.

It is a format that our delegates love – click the video below to see it in action!

“I found the format excellent!” – Marco Del Seta, BOC

“Excellent opportunity to discuss key issues with peers in the industry.”- Andrew Carr, BAE Systems
