Excitement builds as M&E Week 2023 adds more acts to the bill

Manufacturing and Engineering Week 2023 continues to live up to its promise of becoming ‘the festival of industrial innovation’ as it adds a number of extra events to the current programme – largely due to the addition of Smart Factory Expo and the Drives & Controls events.

Haf Cennydd, Portfolio Director for M&E Week, commented saying, “We see M&E Week as being a festival and as a celebration of the industrial sector. We are bringing the world’s most established brands and start-ups together under one roof and presenting them on different stages and in different ways – just as Glastonbury does with its established headline acts and its new breaking act areas. We will also be showcasing creativity and presenting some things which will have our visitors say – Well, I didn’t expect to see that!”.

Among the major events added for 2023 are the Sustainable Digitalisation Summit – an executive level conference for businesses with a turnover in excess of £100m and the SME Growth Summit for businesses with a turnover below £100m. These will run alongside a host of fringe events such as: The Manufacturer Directors’ Forum, a series of Breakfasts & Dinners and The Manufacturer Top 100. Other fringe activities continue to be announced as they are finalised and are expected to include: The Marketing to Manufacturers Night Summit, a Manufacturers of the Future showcase, a STEM programme and much more. It is encouraged to sign up for email notifications or to follow the event on social media because more details about these components will be revealed in the coming weeks.
