The Manufacturer Live are bringing their annual conference and expo to Liverpool this November. This event will see 4,000 manufacturing delegates arrive in Liverpool to showcase the advancements in the industry and to celebrate all that is good within the sector.
One of the main objectives of the conference is to find fresh new manufacturing talent and it represents a great opportunity for tech start-up companies in the Baltic Triangle (and beyond) to get recognised and rewarded at the same time. It’s also a few days to come together in Liverpool and celebrate modern day manufacturing in our vibrant city.
Although the event is nationally facing, there will be a particular emphasis placed on the city of Liverpool and will be highlighting the best examples of innovation happening in the region.
The Manufacturing Live expo is asking companies to show them and Liverpool what makes their company innovative and a cut above the rest – regardless of whether these companies already have experience in the manufacturing industry.
The Baltic Triangle has a plethora of innovative new tech companies and they are sure to be interested in the opportunities presented at this conference. This event will bring exposure to newly established businesses and provide opportunities to network and attract investment from leading figures in the manufacturing sector.
Exciting opportunity for tech companies
A major part of the events programme will be, Innovation Alley. This is an opportunity specifically targeted to tech start-ups that have created innovative applications or products that may be of interest to manufacturers. There are a number of free spaces available for Innovation Alley and they offer a chance for new companies to attract investment and to broker new partnerships.
Companies do not need direct experience in the manufacturing industry and spaces will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. This is all about new opportunities for those looking to break into the manufacturing sector.
