Future Factory Round Tables

Facilitated by a sector leader the round tables will firstly focus on the immediate challenges faced by each sector. They will then look at existing or potential solutions to these problems and future opportunities to improve, implement or take better advantage of them. Each round table will consist of up to 12 manufacturers and a reporter from The Manufacturer and will culminate in a Sector Reflection Report that will feature in a subsequent issue of the magazine.

Please note that the round tables are invitation only and are organised by the editor of The Manufacturer, Jane Gray. For further information email her at [email protected]
