PI UK at Smart Industry Conference

PI UK is an official supporter of The Smart Industry series of Conferences, a series of events launched, in the words of the organisers, to “address and unravel the vast array of conflicting information around 4IR, discussing the practicalities, technologies and issues surrounding transition and implementation of digitalisation in manufacturing across key market sectors in clear and concise language.”

The next Smart Industry Conference at which we will be in attendance will be on the 20th November 2019. Entitled “Demystifying the jargon: How to make the digitalisation transition” the event will be held at the MTC in Coventry.
