Over 80 delegates joined together at the Future Business Centre to find out more about the funding, support and advice available to small manufacturing businesses that could help to develop innovative products, boost production and increase exports.

Delegates also got to hear first-hand what large manufacturing organisations are looking for in potential suppliers, thanks to an engaging talk by Ian Jolly from Perkins Engines Company.

A range of organisations also gave presentations on growth opportunities within the manufacturing industry, including: The Manufacturing Advisory Service (MAS), Business Growth Service, UKTI, Innovate UK, The Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN), GCGP LEP, and the LEP’s new business signposting service – CPCA Growth Hub.

Paul Holt from PhotoCentric, commented: “That was the most useful event of that kind that I have ever attended. It was run with military precision, in a wonderful venue with fascinating and useful speakers.”
