Description

The Makers Meet – One Day Immersive Extravaganza

We’re on a mission to redefine the future of manufacturing and engineering. The Makers Meet will provide the opportunity to get your hands on the latest technology revolutionising manufacturing and changing the way we engage with the world now and in the future.

New world applications of VR, AR, additive manufacturing and AI plus much, much more. This is the opportunity to not only see industry 4.0 in action but to feel it.

You'll have the opportunity to hear first-hand from the individuals and teams behind the ground-breaking technologies to get a better understanding of the challenges they faced and what it took to turn their vision into a reality.

The Makers Meet takes place on Saturday October 12th at the iconic Custard Factory in Digbeth, Birmingham. Our unique layout will be divided up into distinct zones with each one promising a different experience with many more exhibitors and speakers to be added in the next few weeks.
