With less than a month to go before EEF’s flagship national manufacturing conference, time is running out to book your place and learn from best practice experts across industry.

At the conference, to be held on February 26, you can challenge speakers from the main political parties on what they will do for manufacturing in the next parliament.

Whether you are a small, medium or large company the conference also gives you an ideal opportunity to hear the ‘Best of British’ in the morning including Tony Walker, deputy MD of Toyota UK, Nicola Salter HR director of Williams F1 and Richard Kirk, CEO of Polyphotonix, a success story from start up.

The afternoon will look at how we can sustain the current manufacturing renaissance and what companies need to be thinking about over the next 20 years. This panel will include Dick Elsy of the High Value Manufacturing Catapult, Brian Holliday from Siemens Digital Factory and Sophie Thomas from the RSA, an expert in eco design and sustainability.

As well as the Financial Time’s chief economics commentator Martin Wolf and the Rt Hon Matthew Hancock MP – Minister for Business, Enterprise & Energy, there will also be senior politicians announced closer to the time.

There will also be the opportunity to host your guests and customers at EEF’s prestigious annual dinner in the evening where the Guest of Honour will be the Business Secretary, Rt Hon Dr Vince Cable MP and the after dinner speaker will be the broadcaster and former politician Rt Hon Michael Portillo.
