MANUFACTURING LEADERS’ SUMMIT
Researched and produced by:
SHAPING THE FUTURE OF MANUFACTURING
Manufacturing Leaders’ Summit is the annual gathering of top-tier industry visionaries, senior executives, decision-makers, and thought leaders within the manufacturing ecosystem.
They converge for two days of debate and discussion about growth, innovation and key strategic, business and technical challenges faced by the industry in an interactive conference with roundtable discussions, keynote presentations and panel Q&As.
Now in its 16th year, the Summit returns to The Exhibition Centre, Liverpool on November 2024 as part of The Manufacturer Live, which also includes other award-winning events from The Manufacturer such as TMMX Awards, and other fringe activities, offering a comprehensive experience for delegates outside of Summit hours.
With no exhibition stands or sales promotions (Smart Factory Expo moved to Birmingham in June to merge with Manufacturing & Engineering Week) Manufacturing Leaders’ Summit is focused on senior-level networking, thought-provoking content, vibrant debate, and meaningful collaboration on the topics that are shaping the industry today.
What I enjoyed the most from attending the Manufacturing Leaders’ Summit alongside IBM, Ericsson, BMW Group, Oracle, Innovate UK, Reckitt and others was the openness of companies to share best practice and learn from each other at the discussion tables.
It reiterated for me that although competition can be healthy, a problem shared is indeed a problem halved and helps us collectively move society forward, especially in the current challenging manufacturing climate.
