Made in the Midlands, the Midland’s fastest-growing single industry network, will be returning to the Ricoh Arena, Coventry on the 1st July 2020 for the 11th edition of its Made in the Midlands Expo.
Scores of members and decision makers from across the Midlands have already signed up to participate in this year’s event, including Schneider Electric, Hadley Group, East End Foods PLC, Coba Plastics, adi Group and WMG.
Many more are expected to sign up over the coming weeks but if you want to join them then you need to act quickly as stands are filling fast.
Close to 250 exhibitors helped to fill the Ricoh Arena last year, with stands representative of the diverse range of industries which characterise the sector in the region.
The powerful demonstration of manufacturing in the Midlands impressed the thousands of visitors who filed through the exhibition hall during the course of the show, looking to find out more about firms in the region.
Several visitors were so impressed by what they saw that they agreed to join the MIM ranks on the spot - testament to the growing strength and influence of this unique network.
We look forward to welcoming manufacturers from the Midlands and beyond on Wednesday 1st July to celebrate and champion that the best things truly are, made in the Midlands!
"We work in isolation a lot of the time and I think these events certainly give you the opportunity to interact with tens if not hundreds of individuals throughout the industry - it's an essential part of growing in the Midlands area. I think there's few forums at the moment this is probably the best."
Lee Price - Sales Director, adi Group Ltd
"There have been so many opportunities, lots of interest and people have come to us that we wouldn't have found otherwise."
Emma Holly - Managing Director, Lucy Castings
"It's a great environment for people to collaborate, meet like-minded people and get together to bounce ideas off each other."
Alan Norbury - Central Technology Officer, Siemens
"Made in the Midlands as a whole is very important to our business because we feel as a large employer in the area it's really important to engage with our with our local community and supply chain so to have all these suppliers all in one place has been fantastic."
Lee Rowland - Sales & Marketing Manager, Dennis Eagle
"Exhibitors and visitors are very friendly and I like that aspect of Made in the Midlands. You don't build relationships over emails, you build relationships by being here talking people and that's what it's all about."
Charles Boneham - Managing Director, Boneham and Turner
"The exhibitions provide an ideal platform for this to take place given the exposure they bring and we have been luckily enough to attract two new substantial customers to our business from the exhibitions alone."
Daniel Burton, Operations Director RSD Pressings
