Kate Hills, CEO and founder of Make It British said: “One of the key reasons for coming to our event is to network, not only with manufacturers but also with your industry peers.

“These free drop-in sessions will provide the perfect opportunity to explore all aspects of the industry with an inspiring line up of speakers who will be offering advice based on their real-life experiences.”

Meet the Manufacturer will take place on May 25-26 at The Old Truman Brewery, London.
