Have you got a story to tell?

01 May 2017

To inspire and educate delegates about the benefits of implementing automation technologies, this year's Appetite for Engineering event will be taking place on 19th October at the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) in Coventry, a Catapult Centre for high value manufacturing, where many innovative manufacturing concepts are first validated and implemented. 

Appetite for Engineering provides an informal educational forum for engineers working in the food and beverage processing sectors.

This year we will be looking at how the industry needs to prepare for the future, for example through the use of automated solutions. We will be addressing environmental issues with speakers talking about the benefits of implementing energy-saving and waste management solutions. We will also be looking at the important issues of food safety and hygiene and will be addressing how the sector is dealing with the skills shortage. 

If you would like to join us at this event, or if you have a success story in any of these areas that you wish to share with a wider audience, please do contact me for further details about presentation opportunities.
