MTC Digitalising Manufacturing Conference 2019

Published: Wednesday, 12 June 2019

MTC - Digital Conference

Digital Manufacturing is already here – but is your business ready to take full advantage and be at the forefront of this exciting new era?

Over the last four years the Digitalising Manufacturing Conference has grown to become one of the key dates in the manufacturing calendar, with the emphasis evolving from technology through collaboration to people and the concept that digitalisation is not an end goal but a journey. Join us on the 4th & 5th November 2019 for our fifth annual conference, and gain the know-how you need from worldwide leading experts.

This year we're making digital a reality. We've partnered with Made Smarter to bring you a two-day conference that will address international collaboration opportunities, national policy as well as practical knowledge to drive industrial digitalisation from within UK value chains. Under the stewardship of Juergen Maier, chief executive of Siemens UK, day one will focus on policy, international, national and industry perspectives, while on day two we'll look at moving forwards and putting plans into action - addressing the 'what?' and 'how?' questions surrounding digital manufacturing.

We’ll review the continued progress of the Made Smarter initiative and other mechanisms, and we’ll be keeping the international aspect of the conference too – focusing on what we can learn from Germany, Sweden and other key players, and how the UK can use this information to make quick progress on the digitalisation journey.

This year our focus is on making digital a reality. So new for Digitalising Manufacturing 2019 we will be introducing the MTC’s Digital Experience. Held on day two of the conference, the entire ground floor of our venue will be transformed into our largest digital manufacturing exhibition yet.
