The automotive sector in the Midlands is probably in many ways in a stronger position than it has been for years. We are seeing vehicle manufacturers grow and commit to future model programmes for UK build. New technologies are being developed at a pace we could only dream of a few years ago.Questions we are often asked by companies are ‘how can we increase our automotive business?’ or ‘how can we get into automotive?’ To explore these issues, Drive Midlands has assembled a group of senior people from within the automotive industry to share their insights on the latest automotive opportunities and how to get into better shape to capitalise on them. The event will take place on Tuesday October 17, 2017, 08:00 - 12:30 at Coventry Transport Museum. The agenda will cover: • Which vehicle manufacturers are increasing UK sourcing • How to become more competitive • Skills development • Funding for growth Who should attend?
