South Yorkshire businesses head for trade show

Have your say

Businesses in Yorkshire will have the chance to market services and products to some of the leading players in the manufacturing industry at a special trade show in Rotherham next month.

The Global Manufacturing Festival is a rare opportunity for industrial suppliers to talk directly to decision-makers from major blue-chip companies including Jaguar Land Rover, HS2, Siemens Energy, GE Oil and Gas and Airbus.

It is also seen as an important networking event for the large number of engineering businesses in the Yorkshire area.

Organisers of the annual event say this year’s festival, on June 25 at the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre, will be the biggest and best yet with more than a third of 150 stands already snapped up.

Co-organiser Richard Wright said: “We have the best speaker line-up for the biggest trade show to date and we’re already experiencing a lot of interest.

“There this is the perfect chance are many engineering companies in Yorkshire and for them to meet new people and create links.
