Made In Group set to evolve with the launch of national platform

In keeping with its goal of being the authentic voice of UK manufacturing, the Made In Group is set to evolve further with the launch of its national platform.

Made in London will raise the national profile of the hundreds of members which comprise the Made in the Midlands and Made in Yorkshire networks.

Predominantly operating as a public affairs and news portal, Made in London is the influencer arm of the Made In Group, connecting these core manufacturing regions with national policymakers, financiers and the media.

The launch of the new platform will be marked at a prestigious ceremony in the capital on Wednesday (October 17), which will be attended by members from both the Midlands and Yorkshire, together with our Ambassadors, Patrons, Advisory Board representatives, senior management and staff, plus Midlands chairman, Lord Mike Whitby.

Representatives from the various membership strands will also be speaking at the event, outlining their support for the Made In Group and its ambitions, and also why the launch of the London platform is so important for the regional manufacturing industry.

The launch event will also see the publication of the Made In Group’s inaugural Made Report.

Derived from member responses to a wide-ranging survey, the new report is an accurate barometer of the current health of manufacturing in both the Midlands and Yorkshire as the country prepares for life after Brexit.

The report will be circulated to those attending the event, whilst a copy is being forwarded to every politician in Westminster in the hope its findings will help shape future policy.

Important developments regarding manufacturing will be featured on the Made in London website, together with regular commentary on the big issues affecting members of the Made In Group.

The group will also be using Made in London to showcase an International Trade Directory, listing all members for the Made In network and adding search functions to enable visitors to identify which countries members export to or import from.

The launch event takes place between 6.30 and 9pm at The Brewery in Chiswell Street in East London, close to the Barbican Centre.

Jason Pitt, CEO, Made In Group, said: “We are excited to be hosting this special event in London, which will explain what we are doing in the capital to benefit the UK’s manufacturing sector.

“Made in London is a new public affairs platform aimed at promoting the UK’s manufacturing industry to the decision makers, politicians, and influencers within the capital.

“As part of our London launch event we will explaining the features of the new website, distributing copies of our national Made Report survey and offering members an insight into future developments within the group as we approach an important milestone in our evolution.”
