Seminars

2020 Speakers to be announced soon

As we enter a new era of technology, seminars at the Made in the Midlands Exhibition aim to provide key information for exhibitors and visitors to take back to their businesses.

Seminars at the Made in the Midlands Exhibition cover hot topics in the industry right now, such as bridging the skills gap, the impact Industry 4 is having on the manufacturing sector, international trade and inclusivity in manufacturing.

In previous years, seminars have been presented by industry leaders in OEM automotive and aerospace firms, senior public sector buyers, global technology companies and leading politicians looking to share best practice on the future of manufacturing in the region.
