This year’s agenda will provide a fresh perspective on the crucial issues impacting the manufacturing sector in addition to focussing heavily on what was, and what should still be, the sector’s toughest challenge - manufacturing goods to the required sustainability targets. Through a mixture of digital panel discussions and online keynotes, we will explore the following key themes…..

Life after Covid-19: What are the priorities for manufacturers and will there be long-lasting implications for the way we manufacture goods?

Sustainability: Keynote session involving the Chief Procurement Officer from Unilever where the true reach of “net-zero” will be analysed

A new ecosystem: How will manufacturers continue to digitise operations and supply chains during turbulent times?

Supply chain recovery: How can manufacturers optimise production and distribution capacity after the supply chain shocks felt from Covid-19?

Diversity and skill sets: What steps are needed to better diversity, inclusion and advanced skill sets in the boardroom and factory?
