Free June Seminar Insight: The Future of Making Things

In the lead up to our free seminar (Insights and Innovations for Machine & Equipment Builders), which will be taking place at our premises on the 27th June 2018, we’re excited to introduce each of the day’s dedicated sessions in a series of mini-blogs. Each one is published with input from our technical partners, and we’re grateful for the expertise that they’re willing to share with our attendees.

The subject of our first mini blog is ‘The Future of Making Things’, which will be the subject hosted by Autodesk’s James Slater on the day.

The Future of Making Things

Technology is irrelevant; what you do with it is important. But, in an industry full of technological jargon and buzzwords… where do you start? Autodesk are one of 10 organisations that support the Future of British Manufacturing initiative and so they’re in an ideal position to deliver a session on the future of making things. Autodesk’s James Slater will share the approaches used to smash through the theory, how to use technology to help make better products, sell more and generate greater profits.
