Description

The Make it British Forum

in association with Manchester Fashion Institute

Thursday 2 November 2017, Manchester Metropolitan University, Manchester

'How to Master making in the UK...even if you've never been to a factory'

Learn The Tools Of The Trade For Successfully Building A Made In Britain Brand

This one day conference will provide you with the knowledge and expertise required to successfully manufacture, promote and sell a brand that is made in Britain.

Make it British believes that 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. But developing a product that is manufactured in the UK is not always easy.

The Make it British Forum aims to equip you with the expertise required to help you build your British-made brand - from industry experts that understand what it takes to successfully negotiate the UK manufacturing supply chain.

Hear from a line-up of knowledgable speakers, from both the brand and manufacturing side, who will help provide solutions to some of your challenges and set you well on the way to developing a great 'Made in Britain' business.

If you want to build a British-made brand and master making in the UK then the Make it British Forum is the place to be this November.

You will leave this event having learnt the following:
  • How to understand the product lifecycle when making in the U.K.

  • What to look for in a factory partner and what questions to ask when meeting a new supplier

  • Whether you need an NDA when working with a manufacturer

  • The most common manufacturing pitfalls and how to avoid them

  • The best ways to negotiate with a factory

  • How to promote your British-made brand using social media

  • The best ways to approach buyers to get your product in their stores
    and much, much more!
