“As we’re the voice of manufacturing Advanced Engineering is a perfect fit for us. Even though we are not making or exhibiting anything, we support those that do. One of the questions we get the most is how can we support manufacturers and this show gives us the opportunity to answer that for companies across different sectors. One of the biggest challenges going forward is Brexit and we’ve had a lot of companies come to ask about what we can do to support manufacturers in the future. We’ve also had a lot of questions about apprenticeships over the last two days. Exhibiting has given us a platform to showcase how membership to Make UK can help them get the support they need when facing these challenges.”
Roxanne Bennett, Account Manager at Make UK
