Scottish Manufacturing Advisory Service Conference

Event Dates: 
Tuesday, October 24, 2017


The world of manufacturing is experiencing a paradigm shift. Rapid advances in artificial intelligence, data analytics, sensors and robotics, additive manufacturing and digital connectivity are transforming the way we design, build and sell our products and services, while new business models are opening up opportunities for additional revenue streams and profits.


With manufacturing at a crossroads, how will these smart technologies give your business competitive advantage, improve productivity, shorten product development cycles and produce products as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible?  What will it mean for your workforce?  And how to you create and evaluate the business case for investment?


Find the answer to these questions and more at the Scottish Manufacturing Advisory Service’s Future Manufacturing Conference on Tuesday 24 October 2017 at RBS Gogarburn in Edinburgh.  This is your chance to find out how to get your business and your people primed to successfully compete in this new world order.   


Aimed at business leaders across all manufacturing sectors – from small SMEs through to large corporations – the conference has been designed to cater to companies at all stages of the 4IR journey – from absolute beginner to advanced adopter.
