Success as a conference exhibitor lies not just with an eye-catching, interactive booth staffed by your most personable and knowledgeable staff. The magic ingredient is the connections you make.

EEF’s annual National Manufacturing Conference on 24 February 2016 is recognised as the must-attend event for UK manufacturing and engineering. With inspirational, high profile speakers and excellent networking opportunities with key decision makers, exhibition space is selling quickly. It’s easy to see why when you see the types of people who will be attending:

Business leaders


Unlike many other business and industry conferences, EEF’s National Manufacturing Conference really does attract top-level management. This is because the conference tackles the big picture policy and leadership issues that directly appeal to CEOs, managing directors and financial directors. For one day a year, these leaders are all together in one building. Take the opportunity to meet and network with the people who have the power to make decisions.


Operations and production decision makers


EEF has dozens of staff and consultants who work directly with manufacturing and engineering companies to streamline their production, refine their supply chain, boost their exports, and better manage their workforce. That’s why you’ll find operations directors and production managers from a wide range of sub-sectors and company size walking the floor of the exhibition hall. They’re there to learn how they can improve the business, and it’s your opportunity to show them you can help them reach their goals.


HR directors


Owing to EEF’s unique relationship with its members, whereby our team of 80 lawyers support their needs, the conference attracts many senior HR professionals. These HR directors are interested in employee engagements, health and safety and productivity. If that’s your target market, you need to be there to show what you can do.


Rising stars


You’ve got a solution that meets the needs of the manufacturing and engineering industry; they want to impress top management and colleagues by finding that next-generation technology or business solution that takes their department or company to the next level. Ambitious rising stars in the industry look to the exhibition floor as the place to see demos of new tech, talk to consultants who understand their problems and find solutions that will help them achieve their goals.


Great partnerships are often formed through unplanned, spontaneous interactions. Don’t miss your opportunity to exhibit, visit http://www.manufacturingconference.co.uk/exhibition to find out more about the conference and how to exhibit.
