Innovation Alley - Expression of Interest
Are you a start-up, or established player, who would like to showcase your innovative solutions to manufacturers?

KTN and Innovate UK family have joined up with The Manufacturer to support this year’s Digital Manufacturing Week Smart Factory Expo in Liverpool on the 14th and 15th November 2018.

The Manufacturer's Smart Factory Expo is Europe’s biggest showcase for the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) – a revolution in manufacturing agility, innovation and thinking. This year, 6000 attendees from technology, finance and manufacturing will visit over 250 exhibitors and choose from over 200 free-to-attend presentation sessions.
The event, in partnership with government, world-class industry professionals and expert solution providers, provides attendees and exhibitors with a platform to discuss, collaborate and grow in the age of industrial digitisation.
Last year’s Smart Factory Expo saw the hugely successful launch of Innovation Alley hosted by KTN | Innovate UK, a dedicated space for visitors to experience cutting-edge innovation from both start-ups and established players alike. This year’s event will be much bigger and better with an expanded focus on innovation across the manufacturing landscape.

Innovation Alley is the innovation district at the heart of the UK’s largest digital manufacturing exhibition with dedicated micro-booths for start-ups (Alpha) and early-stage businesses (Beta). Clearly sign-posted in the middle of the exhibition floor, this is a high-density up-tempo space for entrepreneurs to show and tell over 6000 digitally-minded manufacturers. Packages start from £500 with a limited number of bursaries available. Please email the show director at for further details.

They are looking for start-ups and established players who would like to showcase their innovative solutions to manufacturers which could include advanced technology, materials, process and systems.
