Scotland Manufacturing & Supply Chain Conference & Exhibition
15 October 2020 | Scottish Event Campus, Glasgow
The Manufacturing & Supply Chain Conference & Exhibition, which is being held at the SEC Glasgow on the 15th October 2020, will serve as a national forum for manufacturers and operators involved throughout the associated supply chains from across Scotland to gather to discuss pressing issues facing the industry. The event is being organised in order to successfully connect key stakeholders across the full manufacturing spectrum in Scotland, including the food and drink, energy, renewables, electronics, aerospace, biopharma, medtech, healthcare, construction, textiles, procurement, and precision engineering sectors.
The Government of Scotland is committed to continuing to improve productivity and increase investment in the manufacturing industry, as a means of helping to redress regional imbalances, and in order to grow the Scottish economy. Initiatives such as the development of the National Manufacturing Institute for Scotland (NMIS) and the Medicines Manufacturing Innovation Centre (MMIC) are helping to drive innovation, establish links with academia and encourage businesses to harness new technologies to enhance efficiency.
Event organiser, Premier Publishing & Events, has been staging similar exhibitions and conferences in England and Ireland for many years. An impressive line-up of manufacturing leaders, academics and government agencies who will engage in a stimulating blend of key note addresses and debates is being assembled for the Scottish event.
