Highlight WM5G and W5G ambitions in the West Midlands.
Demonstrate real 5G examples from around the world, supported by Ericsson and potential other industry players
Be an opportunity to hear keynote speakers: from 5G industry experts to manufacturing trialists; to share lessons learnt.
Include a panel discussion on how to overcome the barriers to adoption.
Be an ideal networking opportunity.

Workshop attendees will also learn how 5G-ACIA is working to influence 5G capabilities in order to better support industrial automation use cases and to effectively meet the needs of discrete and process manufacturing – including 5G integration, testing and validation.
