Investing in UK Manufacturing –
Thursday 18th April 2013
Thank you to all who attended this year’s Manufacturing Summit. The event was very
successful and once again generated plenty of interesting and lively debate. The
feedback received so far has been very positive from all those who attended which
is very encouraging for the industry as a whole.
This was the fourth year of the Manufacturing Summit
and it continues to shape the debate between industry and government, providing
UK manufacturers with the opportunity to hear from and to question key speakers
from industry, government, politics, economics and industry associations – the people
who impact the future of the sector.
More than ever manufacturing is at the very heart of the UK’s economic future. The
theme for 2013 was ‘Investing in UK Manufacturing’ - What is the
Government doing to help manufacturers? What can manufacturers and in particular
SMEs do to help themselves?
Created in partnership with IET, the
Institution of Mechanical Engineers, The ERA Foundation, Engineering The Future
Findlay Media, and sponsored by
Lombard, the Manufacturing Summit brought
together leading keynote speakers, a ‘Question Time’ panel and a selection of practical
discussion forums which offered a wealth of valuable content for anyone with an
investment in UK manufacturing.
Following this year’s Manufacturing Summit a boardroom report covering the event
is currently being prepared and is due to be published within the next month. Copies
will be sent to all those who attended and also made available to download online.
