Europe’s largest festival of advanced manufacturing is returning from 9-13th November.

Traditionally held in Liverpool City Region, this year, due to the global covid-19 pandemic, the forthcoming 2020 event will be held virtually with Liverpool maintaining its host city status with a virtual stand and key high-profile speakers.

Digital Manufacturing Week is an international festival of advanced manufacturing, researched and produced by ‘The Manufacturer’ magazine. Billed as a huge learning opportunity, the five-day event brings together key players from across the industry who are redefining the manufacturing industry on a global scale. The schedule is jam packed with carefully crafted topical themes delivered by a great variety of speakers all within a virtual arena.

Liverpool City Region will have a virtual stand at the event, so come have a virtual chat with a member of the team. It’s FREE to manufacturers and easy to register and once the event goes live simply search for ‘Invest Liverpool’ in the search function.

We will also be taking part in an exciting range of panel discussions and these can be seen with the ‘Access All Areas tickets.’

Digital Manufacturing Week 2020 | Virtual Summit

Digital Manufacturing Week 2020 is the fifth edition of the comprehensive week-long festival for manufacturers, technology solution providers, and subject-matter experts, brought to you by The Manufacturer.

Digital Manufacturing Week exists to fast-track the UK’s adoption of industry 4.0 technologies and solutions and to dramatically increase the pace of the UK’s impending digitalisation. Liverpool City Region is at the very forefront of this revolution and our forthcoming LCR 4.0 programme will be at the very heart of this essential event.

Digital Manufacturing Week 2020 will enable people to join and meet with thousands of peers from manufacturing, digital and tech companies on the festival’s interactive virtual engagement platform from across the globe.

Delegates will benefit from shared insights, global best practice and expert content to help redefine their business model to drive design innovation, operational efficiencies and optimise supply chains.This year’s event will also reflect on the challenges facing UK manufacturing today, in a post-pandemic world and the great skill with which manufacturers will need to meet these challenges.

“We launched Digital Manufacturing Week in recognition of that which drives this industry: the technology and the skills that ultimately makes its way to end users, such as hospitals and businesses, who in turn share that technology and knowledge with one another. It is inspiring and it is important.”
