About Manufacturing Leaders’ Summit:
Manufacturing Leaders’ Summit is the must attend manufacturing conference for senior industry leaders from manufacturing organisations with a turnover greater than £100m. Featuring world-class content, based on case studies and delivered by best-in-class manufacturing speakers from around the globe.
The event is delivered across a variety of keynotes, panel debates and topic-specific Roundtable Discussion Sessions, designed to provide the best value and opportunity for learning. The unique Discussion Session format allows you to choose the topics that are most relevant to you, enabling you to sit next to your peers and topic experts to share challenges, collaboratively develop solutions and have your questions answered first-hand.
Over the two days we will be covering key strategic, business and technical challenges across the manufacturing ecosystem – with maximum opportunity to network, debate and engage with your peers.
The theme for the event is sustainable growth through digitalisation. Sustainable digitalisation of manufacturing is changing how products are designed, produced, used, and serviced, just as it’s transforming the operations, processes, and energy footprint of factories and supply chains. Digital and physical manufacturing are coming together to encourage innovation, disruption, and business value. Whether you’re trying to grow and innovate your manufacturing operations, enable a deep transformation or expand on your current digital initiatives, Manufacturing Leaders’ Summit will help you determine how and where to concentrate your efforts.
About SME Growth Summit:
World-class content, based on case studies and delivered by best-in-class manufacturing speakers from around the globe. Over the two days, SME Growth Summit will be covering key strategic, business and technical challenges across the manufacturing ecosystem – with maximum opportunity to network, debate and engage with your peers. SME Growth Summit is the go-to event for 2022 for anyone working as a manufacturing organisation with a turnover up to £100m.
SME Growth Summit is the industry event for manufacturing founders, owners and their management teams – produced to equip them with the ideas, connections and examples they need to scale up their business. The people, processes and financing that gets start-ups off the ground are not the same as those that take promising SMEs to the next level.
There is no doubt that there will be strong economic headwinds over the next two or three years and this summit will help you navigate these headwinds and emerge more efficient, sustainable and profitable than before. Manufacturing SME leaders succeed by encountering new and better ways of working – knowing when to bootstrap their growth, and when to invest into demand.
The Manufacturer magazine has been working with UK manufacturing SMEs for 30 years – providing them with the knowledge and tools to be successful. SME Growth Summit is the perfect platform to engage with your peers with the ambition to build their businesses, with three key streams: People, Platform and Processes.
