The world is currently in the grip of a fourth industrial revolution, fusing digital technology with physical production to bring us machines that replace even skilled professions. Technological advances like A.I, automation and 3D Printing are changing the workforce of tomorrow and making things better, faster and smarter.
What are the opportunities being brought about by disruption in manufacturing? Who are the new makers? And what can we do now to ensure our workforces have the right skills?
The 2018 International Business Festival’s Manufacturing Day focussed on how business can be ‘future-proofed’ in a disruptive trading environment.
The event examined how to secure stability and opportunity in a changing world and showcased international market opportunities. Delegates met with future partners, buyers and investors and worked to develop profitable, meaningful relationships.
