Make it British, an organisation which promotes British craftsmanship and local manufacturing, is heading to Manchester next month with its Make it British Forum, How to Build a Made in Britain Brand.
Taking place on November 2 at Manchester Business School, delegates will learn how to master making in the UK.
The one-day forum is set to provide delegates with the knowledge and expertise required to successfully manufacture, promote and sell a brand that is made in Britain.
The news follows the launch of the Make it British Forum in Leicester in November last year.
Kate Hills, founder and CEO of Make it British, said: “There is great value in making in the UK, from the convenience and speed of having a factory on your doorstep, to the consumer confidence that is gained by displaying a ‘Made in Britain’ label.
“We know that developing a product that is made in the UK is not always easy, and this forum aims to equip you with the expertise required to help you build your British-made brand.”
A host of industry experts will be on hand at the event to offer advice, along with an line up of brand owners and manufacturers to help provide solutions to the challenges of making in Britain.
Speakers include Sara Prowse, CEO of Hotter Shoes; Mike Stoll, co-owner of Manchester based brand and factory Private White; and Charlotte Meek from The Stitch Society.
