East Midlands manufacturing and engineering conference & expo

4 April, 2017, 8:00 am - 1:00 pm

Becoming more competitive: The role of UK manufacturing and engineering in a post-Brexit economy

This year’s conference includes a series of speakers and expert panel discussions to examine the latest thinking, policy and projections for the regional and national economy.  Of course this includes the impact of the UK’s decision to leave the European Union.  Hopefully by this time, there will be a clearer view on a way forward and hopefully therefore less uncertainty.  Moreover this conference will consider key opportunities for East Midlands businesses.

Loughborough University - West Park Teaching Hub

The conference’s key themes

  • Creating a competitive edge
  • The use of technology to improve competitiveness and productivity
  • Skills – driving the UK towards a high skilled, high wage economy.
  • Creating competitive supply chains

The conference’s keynote speakers

Representatives from blue-chip companies, including Rolls-Royce plc, Vodafone and Jaguar Land Rover Limited.  In fact, in addition to this prestigious line-up, Tomorrow’s Engineers will also be in attendance.  At the same time, others are still to be confirmed.

What’s more, it’s completely free to attend as a delegate.  Not only that, but lunch and networking opportunities are also included.
