The future of UK manufacturing is high-margin and export-oriented – with people, processes and systems focusing on fast-changing customer requirements and delivering transformational innovation.

Forward-looking, future-facing manufacturing leaders from across the sector come together at Manufacturing Innovation Summit 2020. They’ll explore ways technology is growing margins and boosting growth by compressing innovation & NPI cycles.

For the Virtual Summit, our interactive conference format creates online conversations between delegates and industry-leading speakers in a series of small, group conversations, creating a relaxed environment for discussion, and enabling everyone to lean in and be a part of the industry’s most important conversation.

Enjoy 1-2-1 meetings with our expert discussion leaders and industry partners. Whether you are looking to gain insights into your current challenges or exploring new solutions and product offerings, we advise you to book your 1-2-1 meeting today upon your registration!

Organised by the award-winning team from The Manufacturer and shortlisted for the Best New Conference in the Conference Awards 2019, join us for our unique interactive format that enables you to get as much from the speakers as it does from your fellow delegates.
