Manufacturing Leaders’ Summit Announced


Now in its 14th year, the Manufacturing Leaders’ Summit is an integral part of Digital Manufacturing Week and Smart Factory Expo.
Taking place in Liverpool on 10-11 November, influential figures from the sector will get together to address the issues and pressures facing our industry.

Confirmed round table speakers include senior members from organisations such as Rolls Royce, BAE Systems, Dyson, McLaren Automotive, Rotork, Nestle, Firmenich, Muntons, Bimbo, Glen Dimplex and Jaguar Land Rover.

Bringing senior manufacturing executives together from across the whole sphere, topics will include sustainable growth and innovation in an interactive conference format with roundtable discussion groups, keynote presentations and panel discussions.
