Exhibiting at Subcon for the second year, our staff have agreed on 5 things that visitors should not miss whilst visiting the show this year…

1. Free World-Class Seminars

Two free to attend conference streams addressing key issues, best practice and technological innovation are running daily throughout the show.  Covering issues at the heart of UK business, world-class speakers from global blue-chip organisations including Microsoft, Jaguar Landrover, Siemens, BAE Systems, Lloyds Bank, Bureau Veritas and Reinshaw are covering topics including virtual reality, the apprenticeship levy, materials testing and environmental legislation.

 

2. Live Streaming by Velden (stand B22)

A unique opportunity to watch a livestream from the firms manufacturing facility in Bolton. One screen shows several of the firms machines in action, some with robot loading whilst the second screen shows Velden’s smart factory monitoring system.  A great example of Industry 4.0 as a reality in a manufacturing environment.

 

3.  International Supplier Zone

Travel the world from the NEC with the International supplier zone and gain a sense of the global market.

 

4. VIP buyers lounge

If you are lucky enough to be a VIP buyer, then the buyers lounge looks rather attractive with plenty of refreshments and delicious nibbles on offer. Should you not qualify as a ‘VIP’ then we can highly recommend The Edge cafe’s select but tasty menu.

 

5. Meet Aftershock, BBC Robot Wars on stand D31

Ok so it’s our own stand, but a selfie with the awesome Aftershock is a great way to end the show.
