HUDDERSFIELD will host a major event for manufacturers in 2013, it has been announced.
Manufactured Yorkshire – MY13 – will take place at the John Smith’s Stadium on May 9 to bring together the region’s manufacturers and their supply chains for a day of learning, collaboration and networking to strengthen their links.
Organiser Danny Matharu (pictured) said the event was aimed at “plugging a massive hole in the Yorkshire conference calendar”.
All delegate places are free, but as the focus of MY13 is specifically on manufacturers and their supply chains, availability for exhibitors and delegates from service sector businesses will be strictly limited.
Danny, who organises the popular annual Kirklees Business Conference at the stadium, said several seminars were being lined up for MY13, including ones on employment and skills and the future of manufacturing. There would also be Q&A sessions with expert panels on exporting and becoming supply chain-ready.
Said Danny: “We are already on track for 500 delegates from the manufacturing sector to be present on the day.”
