The Manufacturing & Supply Chain Conference & Exhibition and Co-Located Events will take place again on the 24th of November 2020 . This event will serve as a national forum for manufacturers and operators involved throughout the associated supply chains from across the UK to gather to discuss pressing issues facing the industry. It is now firmly established as a ‘must-attend’ annual event, which successfully connects key stakeholders across the full spectrum of British manufacturing, including aerospace, automotive, chemical & pharmaceutical, construction, defence, electronics, energy, food & drink, nuclear, plastics, security, steel, space and textiles.
In addition to Brexit and the global trading environment, other issues high on the agenda at the event include the challenges and opportunities provided by constantly changing customer demands, the rapid pace of technological advances in areas such as artificial intelligence, machine learning and robotics, along with heightening environmental concerns and intensifying competition both domestically and in international markets.
We have assembled an impressive line-up of manufacturing leaders, academics and government agencies who will engage in a stimulating blend of key note addresses and debates. The event will also feature an extensive exhibition showcasing the latest technological solutions and business services.
The disruptive changes generated by the unfolding fourth Industrial revolution (Industry 4.0) will also be examined by many keynote speakers as well as both the resulting challenges and opportunities for British industry.
The event will cover various topical themes including: Industry 4.0, Digital Manufacturing, Smart Factory, Lean & Continuous Improvement, Robotics & Automation, Financing Investment, Industrial Blockchain, Research & Development, Precision Engineering, QEHS, Supply Chain & Logistics, Sustainability, Government Policy and Industrial Strategy, Exports and Skills & Training.
