Event Director Gary Gilmour comments “Our event attracts visitors across the manufacturing spectrum eager to get a better understanding of how to adopt industry 4.0 and then put this into practice. We provide knowledge and solutions, and have plenty of case studies from companies who have already started their digital transformation. Over 15% of attendees have purchasing authority of more than GBP£500k, which we believe reflects that senior management will only attend a couple of important events a year, this being one”.
