Siemens is to host a two-day conference and exhibition in Manchester on 12-13 July.
Transform 2022 will be held at the city’s Manchester Central and will bring together hundreds of industry leaders, influencers and regulators from across the UK and Ireland to collaborate and solve some of the most pressing organisational challenges.
From electrification to digitalisation, from finance to e-mobility, Siemens’ Transform 2022 is all about connecting organisations across the sectors that form the backbone of the nations’ economies, from utilities to transport to manufacturing.
The free-of-charge event includes key-note speeches and panels focussed on four national transformation topics – Business Resilience; Transforming Industry; What's Next in Tech and Transforming Infrastructure - featuring Carl Ennis, CEO Siemens, Brian Holliday, MD digital industries, Cedrik Neike, CEO Digital Industries, Siemens and representatives from renowned brands, large and small.
The programme includes nine challenge roundtables and 24 infrastructure and industry tech talks covering vital topics including decarbonisation, digitalisation, future of automation, the pathway to net zero, cybersecurity, rethinking skills, and responding to COVID.
And there will also be the opportunity to experience the latest cutting-edge technologies and game changing solutions from the UK and around the world.
CEO Carl Ennis said: “At Transform 2022 Siemens will showcase cutting-edge technology with purpose and learning from our partners and customers who have implemented it to drive their transformation.
“We will bring sector and technology experts who are enabling our industry and infrastructure to become greener, cleaner and more sustainable from across the UK and Ireland. It will also be a huge come back after a two-year forced hiatus due to the pandemic for our face-to-face gatherings of industry leaders. Siemens is committed to achieving Net Zero by 2030 and we are striving to help make the UK’s industry and infrastructure low carbon by 2050.”
Siemens last hosted a one-day event in June 2019 called ‘Digital Talks – Transforming Industry Together’ at the Arena and Convention Centre in Liverpool Waterfront.
Brian Holliday, managing director UK & Ireland, Siemens Digital Industries said: "Transform creates an opportunity for a much-needed conversation - the chance to hear from industrial companies on how they’re progressing and investing in digitisation despite tough supply, skills and cost conditions. The pace of change is accelerating. The right skills and technologies make a huge difference; however, firms fail to invest due to lack of knowledge of what’s possible. Transform will help unlock the potential behind industrial digital technologies in the right hands in an informal but expert environment with great cross-industry case studies and survey results that will help us answer the questions - how we can make industry more competitive, productive and sustainable?"
