Make it British has changed the name of its annual trade show from Meet the Manufacturer to Make it British Live!
Kate Hills, founder of Make it British explains: “Our new name, Make it British Live!, reflects the essence of the Make it British campaign and is a stronger reflection of our core values, to encourage more people to buy British and manufacture in the UK. We’re confident that our rebrand will be the fanfare to attract even more progressive businesses, looking to source locally and re-shore their production back to the UK.”
Since its launch five years ago the event has grown from 56 to over 200 exhibitors and it is fast becoming the go to event for British manufacturers and businesses who want to source products that are made in the UK.
Coupled with this, Make it British Live! has announced that its two-day symposium will be co-ordinated by renowned industry commentator Eric Musgrave.
Mr Musgrave’s journalistic career has seen him observe and analyse the entire pipeline of the fashion industry, from mill to high street and now to the internet.
Ms Hills adds: “Eric’s breadth of knowledge and his depth of contacts across the industry is unrivalled and I’m confident that his chairmanship of our seminar programme will bring out the best of the speakers and panellists.”
The two-day programme of seminars will bring together inspiring, informed and provocative people who are passionate about what they are talking about.
Make it British Live! will take place at the Old Truman Brewery in Brick Lane, London from May 23 to 24.
