SMAS Conference: Making Smarter in Scotland

Date and Time

30th May 2018 | 07:45 - 15:45


The Westerwood Hotel


There’s never been a more exciting, but also disconcerting time to be involved in manufacturing.   Industry 4.0 – the new model for manufacturing dominates all the conversations.  But what does it mean for your business in terms of adoption, funding and skills?  

Professor Juergen Maier, the CEO of Siemens UK, recently issued a clarion call in his Made Smarter report, saying this is a “once in a generation opportunity to boost productivity, generate new higher-paid, higher-skilled jobs and increase exports.” To download his Made Smarter report please click the following – Professor Juergen Maier Made Smarter Report.

We’re absolutely delighted that Professor Maier will be joining a stellar line up of industry heavyweights on the main stage at this year’s conference on Wednesday 30th May at the Westerwood Hotel in Cumbernauld.

Practical industry led workshops, exhibition showcasing solution providers and support organisations, as well as the fabulous networking dinner the evening before completes the conference programme.

This is the only event of its kind in Scotland, bringing together manufacturing professionals, public sector and stakeholders to debate, learn and network.  The jam-packed programme will help you understand the steps your business can take to improve its productivity with world-class keynote speakers who will be thought-provoking, challenging and entertaining.
