Making the Midlands a leading destination for the Manufacturing and Engineering sector to Invest and Grow

Building on the success of last year’s conference, the 2019 Manufacturing and Engineering Conference will examine the latest thinking, policy and projections for the manufacturing sector in the East Midlands.

Major changes in the political and economic landscape are continuing across the world, with 2019 showing no sign of respite – the day of the conference will in fact be one day before the UK's exit of the EU.

As the country looks to develop a vision for future success, aligning to the five areas for growth and the four “Grand Challenges” in the Governments Industrial Strategy, the conference will bring together leaders from across the sector and – through a series of keynote and expert panel discussions – will explore the challenges and opportunities to develop strategies that will enable the East Midlands to continue to lead and drive the sector forward in the UK and beyond.

With the theme of “Future Growth” we will examine key topics aimed at supporting the sector, covering:

  • Finance and Investment
  • Skills and Productivity
  • Technology and Digital Transformation
  • Policy and Strategy

The conference is kindly being hosted and sponsored by The Manufacturing Technology Centre in Coventry.


We are pleased to confirm Nick Chism Director General, Enterprise at the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) as our first keynote speakers

A full programme of speakers, panelists and exhibitors will be released in the coming weeks.

Conference Package 

Delegate price includes refreshments and a buffet lunch, networking and the opportunity to tour the venue facilities.
