Gambica and Intellect will be holding a joint event on March 6 2012 at The Commonwealth Club in London to promote the concept of automation and its benefits to industry. Called Automated Britain - The Renaissance of UK Manufacturing, the event will also explore whether there are any perceived obstacles that discourage industry from making more investments of this type. Keynote speakers will include Mark Prisk MP, the Minister of State for Business and Enterprise and Juergen Maier, managing director of Siemens UK Industry.
The purpose of the Automated Britain conference is to alert industry, Government and the media to the opportunities that automation offers. It will spread best practice by having senior executives from the automation and manufacturing industries jointly present case studies on successful uses of automation.
Automated Britain is aimed at industry leaders in the UK manufacturing chain, including senior strategists and decision makers, investors, business consultants and Government officials. Case studies will be presented by major automation companies such as ABB, Emerson, Honeywell, Rockwell and Siemens in tandem with the manufactures that use their technology.
