Make it British is going on tour to Manchester next month with its Make it British Forum on ‘How to build a made in Britain brand’. Taking place on 2 November at the Manchester Business School, delegates will learn how to master making in the UK even if they’ve never been to a factory.
Kate Hills, founder and CEO of Make it British, explains: “There is great value in making in the UK, from the convenience and speed of having a factory on your doorstep, to the consumer confidence that is gained by displaying a ‘Made in Britain’ label. We know that developing a product that is made in the UK is not always easy, and this forum aims to equip you with the expertise required to help you build your British-made brand.”
A host of industry experts will be on hand to offer advice, along with a line up of brand owners and manufacturers to help provide solutions. Speakers include Sara Prowse (Hotter Shoes), Mat Booth (Both Barrels), English Fine Cottons, Isabelle Ugochukwu (Isabella Queen), Mike Stoll (Private White), Denise Pearson (Deni-Deni), Charlotte Meek (The Stitch Society) and Ross Barr-Holland (Ross Barr).
