“This is a great opportunity for businesses to showcase their innovation in the manufacturing sector. We have witnessed the transformation of UK manufacturing in recent years and how the integration of robotics and digital technologies such as artificial intelligence and virtual reality have enhanced companies capabilities and efficiencies.

Pressure is on businesses to be more productive and reduce energy consumption which presents clear opportunities for research and development.
