The Make it British Forum

in association with Manchester Fashion Institute

Thursday 2nd November 2017, Manchester Metropolitan University, Manchester

Back by popular demand - the Make it British forum provides you with everything you need to know about launching and building a Made in Britain brand.

Learn the tools of the trade for successfully manufacturing in the UK

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

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.

This forum aims to equip you with the expertise required to help you build your British-made brand - from industry experts that have already succesfully built great British brands

Hear from a line-up of knowledgable industry experts, 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.

You will leave this event having learnt the following:
  • What classifies a product as 'Made in Britain' in your industry
  • How to produce a spec pack, or find someone that can help you to produce one
  • 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
