Alongside the economic landscape, the UK embedded event calendar has changed dramatically in the last decade and even more so now Covid-19 has put a stop to all events taking place.
The team at Hitex had already identified an opportunity to host a medium-sized technical conference with a focus on a strong technical conference agenda supported by an exhibition, workshops and training in response to engineers requiring any time away from the office to be productive and application-led, not sales-led.
“This is a fantastic addition to our smaller, user-group events which Hitex has become well-known for hosting”, said Mike Beach, MD at Hitex (UK) Ltd. “There are a few large “expo” style events and many smaller one-day technical conferences. The gap between these micro-events and the larger-sized events is wide and has created an opportunity to plug a gap, which I believe we will achieve with this event.”
In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, smaller events with controlled numbers and a local focus will now have an even more important role to play as we move forwards into 2021 and look to get conferences and exhibitions back on track.
UKEmbedded is aimed at the entire embedded marketplace. This event will present an open and diverse profile of both speakers and exhibitors. Confirmed speakers include Green Hills Software, LDRA, Pebble Bay and Feabhas with more being added daily. The exhibitor list is also growing rapidly, with confirmed names including Infineon, DCA, LDRA and Thingstream, plus a healthy pipeline of others coming on board.
Additionally, we are hosting training workshops to run alongside the exhibition and conference, which will give delegates a truly fluid, yet immersive day.
The day will be suitable for active engineers at all levels of experience. This will include junior engineers in their first roles, senior engineers exploring new boundaries, project managers, developers and designers. The conference and exhibition are free to attend, with a nominal charge being made to secure places on the training workshops.
