The full line-up for Made Smarter’s digital manufacturing conference
has been revealed with 44 business and digitalisation leaders set to appear.
Billed as an event for manufacturers by manufacturers, the free-to-access virtual summit on 10 March will showcase how businesses can leverage and fast-track digital technology and tools for a year of recovery, growth and resilience.
Leading the agenda will be North West metro mayors Andy Burnham (Greater Manchester) and Steve Rotheram (Liverpool City Region) who will share their insights about the importance of the manufacturing sector, the role for digital technology in driving the growth, and the benefits technology is bringing to the North West economy.
There will also be panel discussions and roundtable debates, interactive workshops, a virtual expo of the latest digital manufacturing technologies, and business advice sessions, giving attendees access to support available to grow their organisation.
Almost 300 delegates have so far registered to attend the packed one-day programme, which runs from 9am until 5pm, and will be hosted virtually using PixelMax, an interactive online platform.
With registration closing at Midday on 5 March, manufacturers are urged to book their places at the conference via www.madesmarter.uk/conference
Donna Edwards, Made Smarter Adoption Programme director (NW), said: “The response to the conference has been incredible confirming that there is significant appetite among manufacturers of all sizes across all sectors to learn about how technology can support growth, productivity and efficiency gains, and create the smart and high skill jobs of the future.
“We have designed a full programme to tackle the 'why?', 'what?' and 'how?' of digital manufacturing, incorporating a blend of industry leaders, experts, and real-life examples of those who have started their digital journey.
“There really is something for everyone at the Made Smarter: The journey to digital manufacturing conference and I would urge manufacturers not to miss out on what is certain to be a packed day of analysis, inspiration, and practical tips.”
