FREE Wiltshire business event to share tips about using 3D printing design

By Anita Jaynes on 18 June, 2015

The fourth in a successful series of free all-day events to inspire and support local businesses organised by The Enterprise Network Swindon and Wiltshire will give an exciting glimpse into the future.

To be held on June 23 at The Enterprise Network’s Castledown Enterprise Centre at Ludgershall – but live-streamed across the network’s three other centres across Wiltshire at Salisbury, Trowbridge and Royal Wotton Bassett – the day will begin with a workshop by experts from Wiltshire’s new 3D Enterprise Centre at Lackham (one of the network’s satellite enterprise centres.)

“Businesses will learn how they can design and create new products using 3D printing, with live examples,” said The Enterprise Network’s Rachel Finlay. “There will also be information about where to get advice, help and possible funding to support design ideas – and how to protect innovative designs.”

The lunchtime speaker will be former BBC TV Newsnight, The Money Programme and Panorama presenter Dr James Bellini, a renowned futures analyst and writer with a strong focus on social, economic and technological trends over the next ten to twenty years.

Businesses with an eye on innovation will also be able to meet a range of experts for free advice and information during the afternoon.

Rachel Finlay said: “This is the final event in our Enterprise Series which started with the focus on starting a business, then on growing and finally, looking to the future with innovation. Businesses from across Wiltshire and Swindon have told us they found the events stimulating and interesting.”

The Enterprise Network Swindon and Wiltshire, a £5.2m initiative led by Wiltshire Council with Government and EU funding, is nurturing new and growing small and micro businesses by supporting them right from the first ‘light bulb’ moment. It has four Enterprise Centres across Wiltshire offering affordable offices, meeting rooms, co-working and networking opportunities alongside free, impartial, business advice.
