The Engineer Conference once again showcased some of the most compelling and inspiring examples of manufacturing technology from both the UK's established and emerging engineering sectors. Featuring a rich variety of speakers from industry and academia, this fascinating event provided a unique snapshot of the diversity of UK industry and gave visitors valuable insight into the manufacturing strategies of some of our most exciting companies.

This year’s programme was free to attend and is a mix of industry keynotes, technology focused seminars and ‘show and tell’ sessions. The programme was designed for visitors to pick and choose the sessions of interest to them across the three days.

2015 Conference programme coming soon!
