Solving manufacturing challenges for 2020 and beyond

The UK Manufacturing industry is transforming rapidly. Emerging digital technologies like IoT, Additive Manufacturing and AI are now being deployed across numerous sectors, creating new opportunities and challenges for leaders.

About Manufacturing Insights

MI.UK is one of the most important, senior-level gatherings of manufacturing professionals in the UK.

The one-day format moves away from the traditional conference model, instead offering a collaborative working group, focusing on workshops and round tables. Plenary sessions are limited to the major challenges our members are tackling.

Every session is designed to add value by facilitating collaboration and generating actionable insights.
