Make it British has announced Elite Labels as the headline sponsor for this year’s Meet the Manufacturer event.
The Leicester-based labels and packaging producer has thrown its weight behind the two-day conference and exhibition, which will take place on May 24-25 at The Old Truman Brewery, London.
Kate Hills, CEO and founder of Make it British said: “We’re delighted to be working in partnership with Elite Labels for our next event. They supply everyone from the smallest of start-ups to the largest and most prestigious names in retailing, meaning that they will appeal to all our exhibitors and visitors, making them an ideal sponsor for Meet the Manufacturer.
“Their focus on innovation and expertise is particularly fitting this year with the ever-growing enthusiasm and passion for the ‘made in Britain’ label and we look forward to working closely with them.”
Around 5,000 visitors are expected to attend Meet the Manufacturer this year.
The 2017 programme includes free drop-in workshops and seminars plus over 150 exhibitors showcasing some of the top knitters, weavers, tanneries, leather-goods makers, CMT units and homeware factories in Britain today.
New for 2017 is a brands hall, where visitors will have access to a selection of creative businesses, which will be showcasing their distinct and inspirational labels for the first time.
