The Manufacturing Forum is a strategic group to promote the interests of manufacturers in our region. It champions and lobbies for specific strategies and policies that benefit the members – from incubation to maturity, with a specific focus on skills, innovation and growth. The Manufacturing Forum has four main aims: To communicate the region’s manufacturing strengths and capability. To establish a single voice and articulate the needs of manufacturing businesses to key stakeholders and influencers. To encourage collaboration to capitalise on business opportunities. To develop transnational funding, innovation and knowledge transfer to support the growth of manufacturing. The Forum is exclusive to Chamber members who are manufacturing businesses. There is no charge to be part of the Manufacturing Forum or to attend meetings. Complimentary breakfast rolls and refreshments are served.
