Join us in Manchester, the world’s first industrial city and see the latest advanced technology, solutions & research, and how they can be applied to industry.

Learn about their application into industry and how Manchester is helping shape the 4th industrial revolution.

Manchester, the home of graphene. Where the first computer was invented. Where Atomic Theory was proposed.

A city of invention, a city for the future.

Manchester’s role as the host city for the World Advanced Materials Summit & Expo in 2020 befits the global reputation this region has earned for its breakthrough work in material science - and its real world applications.

Manchester is the ‘Home of Graphene’ - the world’s first 2D material - and also home to a cluster of world-leading centres of excellence.

Our Graphene City is, in fact, more than a city and more than 2D materials. It is a diverse ecosystem of innovation that is inspiring developments across a diverse portfolio of research and commercialisation. From ground-breaking biomaterials that will transform healthcare to the use of textile composites in advanced manufacture, our expertise is attracting businesses from all corners of the world.

Manchester was the birthplace of the original industrial revolution and today there is a real sense that this city-region is leading the way again, this time in the applications of advanced materials. Our community of scientists, manufacturers, engineers, innovators and industrialists therefore look forward to supporting the World Advanced Materials Summit & Expo which will help showcase our expertise.
