UK Device Developers’ Conference set for May 2013

The Device Developers” Conference, a new annual event for engineers and designers involved in the development of intelligent systems and devices, will take place at Bristol, Cambridge and Manchester on the 14th, 16th and 22nd May respectively. This year”s event will feature half-day workshops, presentations introducing leading edge concepts and technologies and a vendor exhibition where engineers can get up to date with the latest tools and technologies available for future development.

Sponsored by key industry tool and technology vendors, the Device Developers” Conference is free to engineers and managers working in the technical sector. “This event is shaping up nicely,” said Richard Blackburn, Event Organiser. “We have been very pleased with the level of industry support for this project, we are on target to deliver a very useful event. The workshops and presentations we have lined up should prove to be very informative and helpful for engineers in this field, and many engineers will value the chance to meet a broad range of vendors in a single space.”

A key feature of the Device Developers” Conference is that it is a single day event, which takes place in three locations. This enables engineers to attend with the minimal of travel time and expense. Another key feature is the ½-day technology workshop schedule that enables engineers to receive hands-on training from industry experts.
