WNIE LIVE has declared their event a success for 2018. Taking place at the NEC in Birmingham, WNIE LIVE 2018 provided visitors with the opportunity to witness hundreds of new products, and the industry’s innovation in action.

As the only UK national instrumentation exhibition, WNIE LIVE offers a great platform for visitors to network; and this year the live demonstration of the IPC Connected Factory eXchange (CFX) IIoT Experience, offered visitors the opportunity to see global equipment suppliers working with industry experts. The experience showcased the benefits of this world-wide IoT communication standard for assembly manufacturing and was observed in real time by a group of 13 engineers located in Taiwan.

Female Leaders in Tech Everywhere (FLITE) also hosted its networking lunch at WNIE LIVE 2018, which included a keynote presentation by leadership expert Alison Reid. Many visitors from the event had positive feedback about the launch, commenting that it was great to learn more about the aim of the FLITE group and to help promote and support females within the tech sector.

WNIE LIVE has received positive feedback from both exhibitors and visitors for this year’s event, with Claire Saunders, Event Director commenting “The UK electronics and embedded sectors are still seen as global industry leaders, WNIE Live successfully delivered a platform for the industry to come together and connect, learn and make key contacts.  Supported by a wealth of exhibitors, and although visitor numbers remained static the quality and level of business achieved continued to be high.”

WNIE Live will return in September 2019.
