    Experis, techUK and HBB are pleased to host the second Future of IoT Event in Bristol for 2019

Experis, techUK and HBB are pleased to host the second Future of IoT Event in Bristol for 2019. This year’s event will focus on the incredible benefits that the Internet of Things can bring to Manufacturing; from the adoption of advanced manufacturing methods which allow for greater customisation, through to the potential energy savings and performance improvements that it can deliver. We will also explore the new skills that will be needed to underpin this change, as operations and information technology collide.

Whilst there are pockets of world-leading excellence in the UK, the Government backed Made Smarter Review emphasised that the faster adoption of what it called Industrial Digital Technologies is a priority, offering  a prize fund of as much as £455bn for UK manufacturing over the next decade.

Attendees will hear industry leaders share the opportunities and difficulties of implementing advanced manufacturing techniques, and their recommendations for others who are progressing their IoT journey. There will be the chance to network throughout the day with technology and industry leaders, as well as gain a greater understanding of Government support and plans in this area.  

Please note that as this is a joint event your email and contact details will be shared with Experis and HBB, purely for event follow-up and evaluation.
