East Midlands Manufacturing and Engineering Conference 2019

Building on the success of last year’s conference, the 2019 Manufacturing and Engineering Conference will examine the latest thinking, policy and projections for the manufacturing sector in the East Midlands.

Major changes in the political and economic landscape are continuing across the world, with 2019 showing no sign of respite – the day of the conference will in fact be one day before the UK's stated exit of the EU.

As we look forward, disruption seems to be par for the course in the current climate, whether it be Brexit, fast moving technological advances, or access to skilled labour or the volatile financial markets – the 2019 Manufacturing and Engineering Conference will explore some of the key threats and opportunities for business in the region.

On the day we will be bringing together key players in the sector to look to develop opportunities and strategies that ensures the East Midlands is best placed to take advantage of the ever-changing landscape and can succeed on a regional, national and international stage.

With the theme of “Invest to Grow” we will look at key themes that can support the sector covering:

  • Finance and Investment
  • Skills and Productivity
  • Technology
  • Strategy

The Conference will bring together leaders from across the sector and – through a series of keynote speakers and expert panel discussions – examine these challenges and more, looking to where opportunities present themselves, and working together to ensure that the East Midlands can continue to lead the Manufacturing and Engineering Sector in the UK and beyond.

On the day there will also be a range of exhibitors for delegates to visit.

The conference is kindly being hosted and sponsored by The Manufacturing Technology Centre in Coventry.


A full programme to be confirmed in due course.
