“ There’s a real buzz. It’s nice to see so many people in manufacturing in one place trying to influence government over what they need to do to help manufacturing. ”

Stephen Wright, MD, Thorite

As the 2015 General Election approaches, our flagship National Conference: Make it Britain – manufacturing a renaissance brings together the ‘who’s who’ of manufacturing, politics and media at the UK’s premier manufacturing event of the year.

Manufacturing is enjoying a renaissance in the UK. Critical to sustaining current economic growth and improving UK productivity is the need to invest, innovate and have access to a wide talent pool.

  • What are the trends that will define manufacturing competitiveness over the next 20 years and that require the collaboration of policy makers and business leaders?
  • What are the top differentiators that will define the future of the sector and our businesses?
  • What will the factory of the future look like?
  • Will resource scarcity challenges provide opportunities for governments and markets to get ahead?
  • What are best practice and leading manufacturers doing to compete, innovate and grow?

We address these issues and more at this conference.

Why you should attend:

  • Join hundreds of manufacturers to network, find new business opportunities and share best practice
  • Hear key note speeches from the main political parties and leading manufacturers
  • Vote in our interactive sessions and question experts in our panel discussions
  • Influence the agenda at a strategically important time and challenge political decision makers to create a better business environment
  • Play your part in demonstrating Britain is a manufacturing powerhouse

“ The panel discussions were particularly good - seeing industry experts all dealing with the same challenges. It was rewarding and refreshing and meant that from a networking point of view you can get in touch with those people and find solutions. ”
