London conference on “Automated Britain”

“Automated Britain” will be a high powered one-day conference in London on 6th March which will discuss and present the role of automation as a key factor in growing the UK economy. Jointly organized by GAMBICA and Intellect, speakers will be drawn from Government – both politicians and civil servants involved in industrial support, and industry – both users and suppliers of modern automation systems. Two panel discussions will focus on whether “Automation creates growth and increases employment”, and on “The drivers that will encourage an uptake of investment in automation”: the panel members represent some of the best known authorities on advanced manufacturing techniques operating in the UK. The full programme can be seen on .

The event is sponsored by Siemens, ABB, Omron, Danfoss and SEMTA, and will be opened by Mark Prisk MP, Minister of State for Business and Enterprise. Presentations will be made by representatives from Siemens, Premier Foods, SEMTA, Kraft Foods, Rockwell Automation, Emerson Process Management, Rolls Royce, Ricoh, ABB, National Grid, Honeywell Control Systems, BARA, PCME and ETS, the latter two discussing UK emissions monitoring regulations, and how these lead to world-wide leverage.

Taking place at the Commonwealth Club in central London, from 0930 to 1720 on 6th March, the event will have a small associated exhibition by the event sponsors, plus other manufacturing automation suppliers such as Eaton, Mitsubishi, PCME, Rittal and Schneider Electric. Attendance cost is reduced to GBP245 for GAMBICA and Intellect members and their invited guests – and the same rate applies to readers of the INSIDER newsletter and this report, if requested on application.
