Time: 7.30am - 11.00am

Nottinghamshire County Council in collaboration with the D2N2 Growth Hub is hosting a series of seminar events focused around the Manufacturing and Engineering sector in Nottinghamshire. The aims of the seminar series are twofold. Firstly to inform businesses of some of the specialist support available for the sector, with a view to helping SMEs to grow and succeed. Secondly, to encourage collaboration and discussion between businesses in the sector.

In this, the second of three events, businesses will have the opportunity to hear from organisations offering a range of funding and finance solutions to the sector. The list of speakers and topics for the session are below.

The third event in February 2019 will look forward to the challenges and opportunities for the sector after the United Kingdom leaves the EU. The speakers from each event will be exhibiting at all three seminars, giving businesses the opportunity to engage directly with the presenting organisations. There will also be opportunities to network and exchange ideas with other businesses in the sector.
