This unique 15th Anniversary HVM Conference 2017 and 4th Graphene & New Materials Conference 2017 (GNM17) event series and business network provides a platform for understanding and investing in, partnering and innovating in industrial sectors: (1) aerospace & defence, space; (2) electronics & displays; (3) sensors & devices; (4) energy, energy storage & heat transfer; (5) printing & packaging; (6) healthcare & biomedical sectors within “industry 4.0” manufacturing, materials, intelligence and connectivity.

It is an ambitious platform to understand increased productivity and investment in the relevant opportunities. Leading figures have said that the category will see high, long-run growth by enabling large productivity gains and new models. But when? And how? Who will benefit/lose out? We will present a method and enable intelligent discussion. As a 15th year anniversary, we will review significant events over the past fifteen years and develop a view of the next few years.

Some of the most insightful leaders will provide executive briefing sessions and conference presentations.

Welcome from Director

Cambridge is perhaps the top global university across all key measures. There’s a top tech hub here, well served by investors. I look forward to an inspiring couple of days of events.

- Dr Justin Hayward, Investment Research Director, Cambridge Investment Research

Agenda with approximate timing

2 November 2017 Executive Briefing Day 1, mid-conference dinner evening & networking 9:30am - 9:30pm. This involves science & technology, innovation, markets sizing and growth and a strategy workshop to develop the value network further from previous conferences. This also involves work together on identifying the barriers to growth and adoption of relevant technologies and materials.

3 November 2017 Graphene & New Materials Business Conference (4th bi-annual) & networking 9:00am - 4:00pm

3 November 2017 HVM Business Conference 15th Anniversary 9:00am - 4:00pm

These two conference rooms will run in parallel during 3 November in the same building, within 15 seconds of each other. There will be 6 sessions during the day, each delegate able to see 4 sessions, while 2 delegates can see all of both streams. The sessions will each have an industry sectoral focus, such as aerospace or electronics or biomedical. Each session of 3-4 keynote talks will cover manufacturing (HVM); new materials/graphenes, market growth and size; innovation, IPR and strategy. This industry sector session approach, which we used in 2002 and in subsequent HVM Conferences, will enable new materials and manufacturing value chain participants to engage with brand owners in the wide range of key large sectors covered.

About CIR networks of exchange

CIR invites you to come to these high quality events. They are led by insightful, intelligent and experienced leaders - neither by paid, professional “inspirational keynote” speakers nor by famous people with agents. We select the best speakers (from our audience analytics or from recommendations) who have something to say, have thought it through, and want now to communicate it. They are likely to be in the value network strategically or directly in the market with a product or service. They are busy people who are actually “doing it”, usually now, or recently or have the vision to do it soon.

CIR founded its expanding network in 2002, since when there have been 48 great conference days for 4,375 delegates, covering high value manufacturing and automation, new materials such as graphenes and may other functional materials, connectivity and intelligence analytics. We are well placed to deliver this global platform for business and are excited by the journey into the future.
