Appetite for Engineering 2019 took place on 17th October at the MTC in Coventry. We had 150 delegates on the day, over one-third of which came from end-user food manufacturing companies.
We had a great turnout for an industry that often finds it difficult to take any time out, and this is a testament to the importance of Appetite for Engineering, which offers a combination of great quality presentations and discussions alongside the opportunity to network with industry peers and talk to suppliers who may be able to offer solutions to help keep the production lines running efficiently. We would like to thank everyone who came along, and we hope to see you next year!
This year our delegates really liked the wealth of experience and knowledge imparted during the presentations and panel discussions. We heard from the next generation of engineering leaders about their experiences so far within the food manufacturing industry and their thoughts about the future. We also heard from presenters who have spent a lifetime in the industry.
The presentations and the two panel discussions – which covered automation technology adoption and skills – were all rated somewhere between ‘excellent’ and ‘good’ by delegates, so we think we can confidently say that the event was a success.
We will be starting work on the 2020 event very soon, so watch this space for news about the date and venue. If you have any ideas for presentations please do get in touch, we would love to hear your thoughts.
