We are really looking forward to visiting the Automechanika Exhibition at the Birmingham NEC on 8th June! With 550 Exhibitors and thousands of products and services on display, it’s an opportunity for us to connect with other like-minded professionals. SMMT are running a Meet the Buyer event with purchasing decision makers across design, product development, R&D and engineering. It’s the ideal chance to forge new business relationships and exchange ideas whilst immersing ourselves in the latest innovations from the UK’s automotive companies and their suppliers.
Fantastic to consider, in spite of new reports of harder times for British Manufacturing companies, that we could be producing 2 million vehicles a year by 2017! With Automechanika and the Society of Motor Manufacturers supporting and promoting the industry, which reportedly has a £4bn annual shortfall in the UK supply chain, there are a myriad of exciting opportunities for those who attend!
I am particularly keen to attend the ‘Meet the Buyer’ event on 8th where buyers and new suppliers can come together through pre-organised one to one scheduled meetings. It sounds like a very busy time for all involved, I suggest anyone looking for more business should get along too.
