Join us on 19 February 2019 for our National Manufacturing Conference and Dinner at the QEII Centre, London and the London Hilton on Park Lane.

The year's most unmissable event brings together industry and thought leaders along with key policy makers for a day of analysis and inspiration - just one month from the UK's departure from the EU. It's an opportunity to ensure you're clued up and business ready, whether it is for new customs arrangements or for supply chain mapping processes.

But it's not all about Brexit. At a time of unprecedented technology-driven change, we will delve into key issues such as trade, the next generation, effective leadership, the digital future and a sustainable steel industry.

Hear from industry peers already delivering solutions and gain insights into how you can emulate their success.

The day will be rounded off with networking and discussion at our exclusive black-tie drinks reception and gala dinner. Our guest of honour will be a very Senior Cabinet Minister followed by some after dinner entertainment .



Get advice and tips designed to help improve your business.




Hear keynote addresses from a portfolio of leading figures.
