SMAS Conference 2020

The SMAS National Manufacturing Conference 2020

Given the extremely fast-moving situation with Covid-19, we have taken the carefully considered decision to reschedule the SMAS National Manufacturing Conference from its original date in May til later in the year.

Bringing together industry experts, solution providers and support organisations to learn, share, debate and network

It’s an exciting time for Scottish manufacturing. The creation of the industry-led National Manufacturing Institute for Scotland (NMIS) will sit at the centre of a new Manufacturing Innovation District, making Scotland a global leader in advanced manufacturing and a magnet for investment.

Matching that ambition, the Scottish Manufacturing Advisory Service (SMAS) National Manufacturing Conference returns in 2020 – bigger, better and bolder than ever before. A move to the Edinburgh International Conference Centre allows a new flexible, interactive format that will put you in charge of building your own tailored conference experience, to get exactly what you want from the day. 

You’ll enjoy a jam-packed day of inspirational keynotes, labs, theatre sessions, workshops and clinics – not to mention Scotland’s biggest technology showcase and exhibition. 

Join us at the only event of its kind on Scottish soil – it’s one you can’t afford to miss.
