The event is free to attend and MAS has urged companies to attend and open their eyes to billions of pounds worth of contracts.

The event on April 30 is limited to 150 delegates and will include presentations from MAS regional director Lorraine Holmes, the Midlands Aerospace Alliance’s Dr Andrew Mair and two keynote speakers from a leading car manufacturer and aerospace prime.

There will also be an introduction to the recently launched GROW:OffshoreWind initiative, which is designed to provide manufacturers with access to technical advice, innovation support, supplier matching and grants of up to £500,000.

Anticipating interest in the event, Ms Holmes said “The UK is currently sitting in a very good position for attracting new manufacturing investment and we want to make sure our smaller companies also benefit from it.”

She continued: “This event will look to outline the opportunities, but importantly also examines the challenges of entering these markets, the type of quality accreditations you may need and other nuances that could mean the difference between winning work or not.

The MAS conference, which will be held at RAF Cosford – will also include a number of interactive workshops.
