The Global Manufacturing Festival: Sheffield, a joint initiative by Sheffield Chamber of Commerce, Marketing Sheffield, The Cutlers Company and AMRC Sheffield has been launched to help businesses build in-roads into advanced manufacturing.
Part of the UK’s International Festival for Business, the Global Manufacturing Festival (GMF) is specifically designed to help SME’s understand the supply chains for a broad range of high growth market sectors, how they might access them, and where to focus investments to gain future business. The GMF is happening 24 – 25 June 2014 and will be held at The Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) in Sheffield, a world-class centre for advanced machining and materials research for aerospace and other high-value manufacturing sectors.
As well as a Conference and Trade Show, the GMF is deliberately setting out to network SMEs with large global companies. The GMF is a unique opportunity for smaller businesses to understand what’s coming next and how to sell into global markets.
It is targeted at over 1,000 SME companies plus global powerhouse names including Siemens, Tata Steel, Boeing and Rolls-Royce.
