Manufacturing and Engineering Event

Innovate to stay ahead  

The manufacturing sector is essential to UK economy and industry, and this is mirrored in the Government’s initiatives to increase activity in the sector.

However companies are under increasing pressure to cut costs, meet the rising prices of raw materials and take on the additional risks associated with new markets if they are to survive. Companies within the sector must continuously look at ways to stay ahead. One of the ways this can be achieved is through innovation and our event focuses on how innovative companies can succeed where others may fail.
