Every year for the past eleven years, Made in the Midlands holds an exhibition at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry dedicated to manufacturers based in the Midlands. Over 200 businesses from the manufacturing sector are already set to exhibit on 1st July, with more and more signing up every day. We wanted to shout about some of the industry-leading companies who will be taking part, showcasing what they do within the manufacturing sector.
Made in the Midlands is all about championing the manufacturing sector and challenging the erosion of British industry. Throughout the year MIM holds around 30 networking events at members premises, giving them the opportunity to network, share best practice and, most importantly, build lasting relationships. The exhibition gives members the chance to share their success with other manufacturers and visiting guests all under one roof.

To celebrate this prestigious and exclusive event, here are industry-leading companies that will be exhibiting at the 2020 Expo.
