Event description

Description

Yorkshire, birthplace of great puddings, pints and fabulous confectionery is also home to some great businesses, and we'd like to celebrate some of them. With hundreds to choose from we only have time for a few, but do join us to hear about how these products came to be, and to celebrate the wonders of Gods Own Country.

This Rise and Design is also kicking off Huddersfield's first Design Conference, so we're starting a little earlier than usual to give you the chance to go to that too. They have even more great speakers, so grab yourself a ticket HERE


We'll be hearing from:

Mark Partridge, Design Manager, orangebox. www.orangebox.com

Since its launch, orangebox has become recognised as one of the UK’s most progressive, innovative and successful office furniture companies. In fact you're quite possibly sitting on one of their chairs as you read this. But they don't so much manufacture furniture as create the right environment in which to work. Mark will give us an insight into the design processes that create their products, and some of the trends that are influencing the way we work.

Phil Gillatt, Silentair Systems Ltd www.silentairsystems.co.uk

Air Conditioning - There is a better way

There is a coming revolution in the way we cool people, particularly in offices. Phil will describe this unique product that allows designers to create their own shape and colour of AC that will complement their designs, rather than detract from it.

Neil Pryke, Innovation Director, James Heal www.james-heal.co.uk

For almost 150 years James Heal have supported the clothing and textiles industry, helping manufacturers around the world ensure their products are durable, colour fast, and of high quality.

Neil will describe some of their recent developments, and give us an insight into the design, development and manufacture of their leading edge instruments.

Verity Warner, Senior Industrial Designer, AME Group www.ame-group.co.uk

The multi award winning AME Group, based in Sheffield, have designed products for the food, healthcare, DIY, and consumer products sectors. Verity will focus on one particular project, the Jigtech Pro, designed for another Yorkshire based client, Dale Hardware.



Rise and Design lasts for approximately two hours, and includes networking before and after speakers. There is a chance to pitch at the end of the speakers' presentations, and you can book a stand for the whole event. We encourage all delegates to stay after presentations for networking - it is one of the most valuable parts of Rise and Design. For more information, please visit our website
