The Live Demo Stage will be the centrepiece of this new area where exhibitors will have the opportunity to show the audience what they can offer via live technical product demonstrations. This will also give visitors the chance to learn and understand how these could benefit their own particular manufacturing operations and applications.

Providing a vital link between product developers, solution engineers and end-users, Connecting Industry LIVE will offer two days of networking, demonstration and learning opportunities for anyone involved in the manufacturing Industry.
