2021 Virtual Offering



Yes, virtual events are not always great, but we have taken a lot of feedback and hope you like the new agenda format!

  • Up to three hours of LIVE content, spread over four days.
  • Not another Netflix, on-demand event experience, or boring webinar! Live presentations only with the speakers taking your questions ‘in-person’….via a screen. 😊
  • Two informational case studies presented by PowerPoint per day, mixed in with two interactive sessions: 45-minute live panel discussion with audience Q&A, plus 60-minute facilitated, closed room (*zoom) discussions – connect with peers ‘face-to-face’.
  • No time to waste on ‘nice to know’, our agenda participants deliver what you NEED to know. We spend our days carrying out calls with manufacturers, to nail down the busines outcomes they need technology to help with. We also discuss a challenge or two! We then source Director Level and above manufacturers, who are ahead of the game and are willing to share how they have implemented Digital Transformation and Industry 4.0 strategies successfully. 
  • We’ve kept your favorite features! Renewing a partnership as old as the event, MxD takes attendees through a guided tour of its Future Factory Floor
  • IDC also returns, to deliver their popular Consultants Clinic – join a zoom room and get some advice from the leading Analysts. 



Networking does not just start and end at the virtual event. Connect with fellow manufacturers, who have all been pre-qualified and have the same technology interest and ownership as you.


  • 12-month content schedule, with podcasts, webinars and guest opinion pieces addressing a different business theme every month.
  • Monthly virtual Happy Hour meetups in the run up to the event for past and present attendees.
  • Private LinkedIn networking group.
  • Pre-arranged 1-2-1 private meetings through Pathable, the virtual event platform.
  • The Pathable People's section makes it easy to find the right connections by filtering your search with interest tags, for you to private message.
  • Social wall sharing - stay tuned for our photo competition!
