Innovation Alley

An exciting innovation corridor showcasing the ideas, energy, and expertise of innovative manufacturing technology start-ups.
Innovation Alley runs through the heart of Smart Factory Expo and is an ideal platform for start-ups and early-stage businesses to forge new partnerships with solution providers, customers, and industry experts. This year we will be featuring over 50 of the UK's hottest startups!

Hosted by Innovate UK in partnership with KTN, HVM Catapult, Made Smarter and STFC.

 The location gave us the foot traffic that we hoped for. In combination with the exposure we received in the magazine and the 'Automotive Visitor Trail' we had the right people come to us during the event. The collaboration with The Manufacturer was absolutely amazing. I was absolutely satisfied with everything and look forward to next year's event.

 Innovation Alley is a great idea especially for start-ups like ours.

 The show's layout and quality attendance was excellent and I'm building up contacts across the board based on those who visited me.
