Manufacturing Event 2017 Introduction
For us pre-planning the event we had very high expectation for the national manufacturing & supply chain event because of the number of exhibitors, attendees and also from the events previous success. With the excellent program, Premier Publishing put together across the venue this was not just going to attract a high volume of people but also high quality attendees. The diversity of the agenda was always going to attract people from a number of background as topics included 3D printing, Lean Manufacturing, Biopharma, Data & IT Medtech and cleanrooms just to mention a few.
Looking back at previous events we have exhibited at, one of the major reasons we feel this event was successful was down to the venue. To run an event of this scale venues are limited with over 250 companies exhibiting. With a purpose-built venue like Citywest Hotel, WiFi and technology wasn't a problem as this can have negative implications as we have all seen before with high profile events. Using the WiFi throughout the day for enterprise devices connectivity was perfectly acceptable. We felt the venue to be a perfect location as its accessible across all corners of Ireland and only 25 minutes from Dublin Airport along with having a huge amount of parking spaces on-site.
Manufacturing Solution Set Demonstrations
With the success of last year’s national manufacturing & supply event we wanted to have the same success and more. We wanted attendees to see our solution set but also test it out for themselves and see how it relates back to their applications. We had demo’s set up for our Cognex range so attendees could use our handheld range to read the most challenging DPM (Direct Part Mark) codes. We also had Cognex Vision Sensors setup for people to look at real life vision applications and see the software behind the technology. Other demos included RFID applications and SOTI pre-loaded onto our mobile devices for demo’s there and then.
VisionID GS1 Partnership
We were delighted to work with GS1 Ireland on the day of the event with our business card draw and in the future with the announcement of our Platinum Partnership. We will work together on bringing next generations standards based solutions for the manufacturing, retail, food, healthcare and apparel sectors.
