The Summit is the first of its kind regionally because of its strong focus on the development and expansion of manufacturing. It is focused on building a global manufacturing network that is key to facilitating global market activity defined by interconnected functions, operations and transactions needed to bring products from prototyping to final delivery. The Summit allows for the rethinking supply chain management through exposing participants to alternative global partners for the sourcing of raw material etc. We are bringing players together in one place to facilitate opportunities for businesses which will make the difference to economic growth.
The Trade and Innovation Summit also allows us to celebrate our traditional sectors as they have played an important role in the development of our economy while acting as a launching pad for other businesses. It brings to manufacturers professional advice from global experts as it pertains some of the most topical areas of manufacturing.
