Get Digital – Survive or Thrive
From artifical intelligence and 3D printing to digital manufacturing and Industry 4.0, the next revolution is sweeping through business. Does your manufacturing company want to grow by embracing digital techniques and 3D printing? Is your SME ready to access digital processes through the supply chain or are you keen to learn about how you can?
Then this fantastic free half-day event is just for you.
