Free places are available for UK based industrial digital technology innovators to exhibit at the upcoming Smart Factory Expo

Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) and Innovate UK are offering an opportunity for 50 innovators to take part in the virtual Made Smarter Emerging Technology Show, taking place on Friday 13 November 2020.

The Smart Factory Expo 2020, a part of Digital Manufacturing Week 2020, provides an innovative way for UK-based industrial digital technology innovators to engage with the thousands of manufacturers that will be attending.

Virtual audiences will be attending from around the world to take part in conference talks, workshops, pitching events and the exhibition.

Getting involved
This opportunity is open to UK-based technology companies who have a solution to support manufacturing productivity.

Applicants should have a new product or service in or ready for market and have technology that aligns with one of the following Manufacturing Made Smarter Industrial Digital Technology Areas:

  • Industrial Internet of Things and connectivity
  • immersive technologies
  • robotics and automation
  • artificial intelligence, machine learning and data analytics
  • additive manufacturing

As the show is entirely virtual this year, the number of international registrations has risen significantly offering an even bigger audience of manufacturers and investors to pitch to.

Those who receive a place will be asked to sign up to the event conferencing technology as a virtual exhibitor. You will be invited to give a 15-minute pitch about your business and innovative solution for manufacturers at a predefined time slot and will need to be available throughout the day to meet with event attendees through the video conferencing technology.

There will also be an opportunity to collaborate with other solution providers and event attendees.

How to apply
If you meet the criteria and want to take part, register your interest in the Emerging Technology show here. The deadline for submitting applications is 23 October 2020.
