Update on Make it British Events

Just wanted to keep you updated with some exciting plans for Make it British Live! and other events, both business and consumer, that we have coming up.

Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, our planned trade show on 17 & 18 March 2020 at the Business Design Centre had to be put on hold 🙁

Back in May we announced that we had deferred the live event until 9 & 10 March 2021. Whilst the venue will hopefully be able to open sooner, we feel that holding any type of live event in 2020 is too risky given the unpredictable times we’re living in.

So in the meantime we are planning a series of fantastic virtual events, including an online conference, speed networking, virtual pop-up shop and live podcast recordings!

Some dates for your diary below. More details to follow shortly.

Future proof the Uk textile industry

Live Panel Discussion: How do we future-proof the UK textile industry?

Weds 29th July 3pm

Join me for an exclusive live podcast recording with special guests from Kornit Digital and Gerber Technology.

If you want to find out how the industry can create less waste, increase sales and grow profitability, then this virtual event is for you!

Invitations being sent later today – keep an eye on your email for more info.
