Manufacturing the Future Conference 2021

The Conference for Discrete Manufacturing Sectors

The year ahead will vary for manufacturers depending on where they have felt the greatest impact from the pandemic. For some, it will focus on rebuilding lost revenue streams; for others, it could require recalibrating supply networks to serve different market demands. But for all manufacturers, it should include a commitment to increasing agility in operations. By continuing to invest in digital initiatives across production and the supply network, manufacturers can respond to the disruptions caused by the pandemic and build resilience that can enable them to thrive.

The global pandemic has managed to highlight need for greater digital investment, which can help to address the ongoing challenges of managing through unknown disruptions. Technologies drive value from data, helping to improve productivity and capability. Being small is not an excuse for being a late-adopter. Small should mean agile, not slow.

Digital transformation in manufacturing is facilitating the global supply of product and services, irrespective of geographic location. It’s the future.


This conference will support leaders to understand what they can and must do to achieve  Operational Excellence by driving process capability and productivity in existing systems and optimising to become faster, better and smarter.

This event also offers incredible networking opportunities with virtual stands in the exhibition area, and the ability to have one-to-one video chats, and group meetings with over 300 businesses attending.
