B&R Automation is another automation company exhibiting at the event, and their Regional Manager Andrew Norcliffe comments on the reason for their involvement: "B&R provides manufacturers with innovative hardware and software solutions to bring their factory into the 21st century. What better place to promote our technology than in the heart of the Northern Powerhouse, Manchester, at the Industry 4.0 Summit. We are delighted to be involved in the event look forward to sharing our own experiences of modernising our 65,000 square metre factory in Austria with visitors to the show."

Event Director Gary Gilmour says: "We have been really encouraged by the level of support that this new event has received. With support from trade associations such as Gambica and the Industrial Internet Consortium, to endorsement from the government's Innovate UK, through to incredible speakers from Airbus, Siemens, Unilever and, of course, all the exhibitors we have secured, we believe we have a great event that will educate UK businesses on what the benefits of Industry 4.0 can deliver, and to see the latest technology from companies driving the 4th industrial revolution."

The organisers will be delivering 40 speakers on industry 4.0, IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) and smart factories. The event aims to attract 300 conference delegates as well as 60 exhibiting companies and 3000 visitors to the trade exhibition.
