Part of Digital Manufacturing Week 2022, the Smart Factory Expo lands in Exhibition Centre Liverpool on 16th and 17th November.
Here’s why 2,000 manufacturers are due to attend…
The digital transformation will define the future of the manufacturing industry. This means different skills, new technologies, and a total reassessment of current ways of working.
At a time when manufacturing is faced with a variety of difficult economic factors, the prospect of such large-scale change is daunting. That’s why British manufacturers and technology specialists are heading to Liverpool for this year’s Smart Factory Expo, where they’ll get to experience the future of the sector first-hand.
What can visitors expect from Smart Factory Expo?
For the seventh year, the expo will act as a hub of inspiration and technological innovation. According to the organisers…
“Smart Factory Expo brings together all the technologies enabling the digital manufacturing revolution under one roof – creating a carefully-curated shop window for manufacturers at all stages of their digital journey.”
Here, manufacturers looking to accelerate their digital strategy can see demonstrations of the latest in automation, robotics, and AI technology and gain insights from expert speakers covering topics that range from cyber security to diversity in tech.
Meanwhile, for businessowners and representatives who aren’t as far along in their journey, the Smart Factory Expo will offer an invaluable look at possible next steps.
The Exhibition Centre Liverpool event space will feature five distinct Visitor Zones, where an exciting array of exhibitors will showcase their cutting-edge digital solutions. These exhibition spaces offer an unparalleled opportunity to find out more about the technology that’s shaping the industry today.
Within each Zone, there will be a content theatre showing free-to-attend presentations that run throughout both days. You can check out the full itinerary on the Smart Factory Expo website.
Right at the heart of the expo, the Made Smarter Innovation Alley will be brimming with emerging technologies that are set to define the future of the industry. And, elsewhere, the Innovation Village offers visitors the chance to interact with technology they could very well be using in their own factories soon!
Other Digital Manufacturing Week 2022 events
Running alongside the Smart Factory Expo will be the SME Growth Summit and the Manufacturing Leaders’ Summit. For manufacturing organisations with a turnover of up to £100mn and over £100mn respectively, the events will focus on…
“World-class content based on case studies and delivered by best-in-class manufacturing speakers from around the globe.”
Offering great opportunities for strategic planning and networking with peers, both events will help businessowners business plan effectively and build resiliency for the challenges ahead.
Plus, ticketholders to either event will get free access to the Smart Factory Expo! So, there’s no need to miss out.
