UBM Canon announces a new series of educational Learning Labs designed to provide high level content for industry professionals. These educational sessions will be held in conjunction with the following shows: AeroCon, ATX: Automation Technology Expo South, Design & Manufacturing South, PlastecSouth and SouthPack Expos taking place April 15-16th, 2014 at the Charlotte Convention Center. The Learning Labs will help attendees get up to speed with the latest critical concepts and enabling technologies in design, manufacturing, engineering and automation and packaging.
The first ever Charlotte Learning Labs will break away from the traditional, all-day classroom mentality by providing two hour concise and interactive sessions which will allow for more focused peer-to-peer learning, sharing of ideas and innovation showcases.
Attendees will be able to craft their own unique schedule for the Learning Labs over the two event days. Each session will be led by industry authorities who will expound upon technical breakthroughs, practical case studies and new technologies to deliver solutions for current challenges.
Attendees can choose the Labs that best fit their specific learning requirements:
1. 3D printing capabilities
Investigate demand based manufacturing, functional prototyping and new materials that will change the future of product development.
2. Improved packaging design to meet new end-user needs
Walk away with better ways to develop and address store visual identity during packaging design in a session that highlights recent consumer trends and their impact on purchase behavior and packaging.
3. Innovations in robotic technology
