Some of the biggest global names in advanced manufacturing including Siemens, Dell, HP, Bosch and Hitachi will descend on Liverpool for a major conference in November.

For the third time, Digital Manufacturing Week will welcome 6,000 industry leaders and high-growth manufacturers from across Europe for the annual industry gathering from November 12 to 15 at Exhibition Centre Liverpool.

Integrating dozens of manufacturing events and hundreds of talks, panels and debates, Digital Manufacturing Week brings together Europe’s most innovative companies to keep pace with new trends in digital transformation.

James Smith, Digital Manufacturing Week event director, said: “Returning to Liverpool for our flagship event is a highlight of the year. It makes perfect sense for us to bring together the best of the UK industry in a region that’s at the heart of the digital manufacturing revolution.

“Liverpool and the North West boast the people, skills and innovative organisations that make it a natural fit for Smart Factory Expo.”

Represented at the event will be Sensor City, a £15m collaboration between the University of Liverpool and Liverpool John Moores University that has seen the creation of a world class centre of excellence for sensor technology in the city.

Its interim executive director, Dr Joanne Phoenix, said: “It’s fantastic to see an increasing number of companies wanting to embrace Industry 4.0, however we are repeatedly hearing about the challenges and barriers to digital innovation that manufacturers are facing.

“Smart Factory Expo provides an ideal forum for the manufacturing community to come together and learn from one another, and we’re delighted to be a Partner in this international event once again.”
