Made In The Midlands 2017 Exhibition – Will we see you there?

We’re now approaching exhibition season and following on from our success last year, you’ll see Minster exhibiting again this year as a Gold Partner at the Made In the Midlands Exhibition in May at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry.

The exhibition has been branded ‘Bigger, Better and Bolder’ to capture the wide scale growth of the event. This means there will be plenty of ideal networking opportunities with many local companies.  At the exhibition you can expect to see over 2,000 representatives of the Midlands manufacturing sector and a record-breaking 200 exhibition stands.

The Made in the Midlands 8th Exhibition is a full day event which brings together the very best of Midlands manufacturing & engineering services from across a wide variety of sectors, including Aerospace, Automotive, Rail, Marine, Medical and Oil & Gas.

The opportunities that come from the exhibition are ideal for businesses including a series of seminars hosted by our partners, on the day, focusing on a variety of topics which affect Midlands manufacturers.

It’s free to register so if you are interested in attending the Made in the Midlands exhibition in Coventry on the 25th May 2017 then please click here for more information: http://www.madeinthemidlands.com/content/expo

We’re very much looking forward to the event and would love for you to come and say hi to us – we’re on stand D25!

 

Minster @ Made In The Midlands Expo!

With over 1,200 tickets sold and over 125 exhibitors, it’s safe to say that this years’ Made in the Midlands exhibition was one of the most successful for everyone involved.

Minster had a really great day exhibiting as a Gold member for MIM’s 2015 expo and met some fantastic, local and like-minded companies to discuss business with. We found it an excellent opportunity to network with many different businesses and also catch up on the latest trends and news within the manufacturing industry.

As around 60% of our customers are in the manufacturing sector, it was an excellent platform for us to showcase our products and discuss with other exhibitors the challenges that we have helped our clients in the same sector overcome.

At this exhibition we decided to do something a little different for our competition and decided to give-away a money tree. We felt that a money plant would be more fitting at this exhibition than any other as it’s a symbol of both growth and prosperity – something that the manufacturing industry is enjoying in this climate. The draw was made by one of the Made in the Midlands team, Sophie Whittingham.  The lucky business card that was picked out belonged to one of the lovely ladies from the Paycare stand. She was overjoyed to have won and we are confident it has gone to a really great home.

Apart from the fantastic networking opportunity and competition fun, Minster also managed to catch up with some great companies we have met at previous events as well as some of our own customers. Our director, Susan Marlow, also had chance to have a chat with local UKIP MEP James Carver .

Alongside all this, Minster also took the opportunity to talk with many of the local universities and training consultancies about our current recruitment drive and our concerns over the skills gap facing businesses in the Midlands.

All in all the Made in the Midlands exhibition was a fantastic event that we are proud to say we were a part of. We would like to congratulate the MIM team on their efforts in organising a fantastic day. We hope you all had a really successful exhibition as much as we did. Already looking forward to MIM Expo 2016…!
