April 2017 will see two major manufacturing events hosted in the UK - Industry 4.0 Summit and Factories of the Future. Showcasing thousands of innovations to help manufacturers digitise and upgrade operations, these are Europe's only events dedicated to the future of manufacturing.


A stellar line-up of speakers from leading companies who recognise the importance of the 4th Industrial Revolution will be sharing their experiences - including Bosch Rexroth, Schneider Electric, Siemens, Unilever, Cisco, IBM, Dassault Systèmes & Airbus.

Hosted in Manchester - the world's first industrial city with the first factories and the first industrial estate - Industry 4.0 Summit will be Europe's largest gathering of solutions providers, innovators and technology buyers looking to get ready for this step-change in global manufacturing.

Gary Gilmour, Event Director , commented "To remain competitive, manufacturers of all sizes need knowledge, training and solutions to improve productivity, shorten product development cycles and mass produce customised products as efficiently and cost effectively as possible. They will find all of this and much, much more at the Industry 4.0 Summit. Small and medium manufacturers are the lifeblood of the British economy and it is imperative for them to adopt industry 4.0."

Industry 4.0 Summit promises to address the digitization of manufacturing and the radical transformations taking place in the worldwide manufacturing industry.
