20 November, 2019
Location: Advanced Manufacturing Training Centre, Coventry
Digitalisation presents huge opportunities for British manufacturing over the next decade. However in the UK there is an enormous information vacuum, and many SMEs need urgent guidance in clear and concise language in order to prepare for this transformation, so as not to be left behind their global competitors.

The Smart Industry series of Conferences will address and unravel the vast array of conflicting information around 4IR, discussing the practicalities, technologies and issues surrounding transition and implementation of digitalisation in manufacturing across key market sectors in clear and concise language.

The conferences’ main aim is to provide a practical, jargon-free opportunity to those starting out on the digital transformation process, to experience a complete smart roadmap, highlighting the incremental stages of the 4IR journey covering all aspect of the digital transformation.
