    Our 2-day conference programme features a line-up of eminent speakers who will shed a positive light on the how, why and where of manufacturing in the UK. Visit the Conference page to find out who’s speaking at the conference this year.


    For the first time in 2016 the event includes drop in workshops to help you gain practical insight into manufacturing in the UK. These free sessions provide the perfect opportunity for you to explore all aspects of the industry, from factory auditing to leather selection.


    MTM showcases some of the top knitters, weavers, tanneries, leathergoods makers, CMT units and lingerie factories in Britain today. The trade show gives buyers & designers the opportunity to meet with manufacturers & suppliers face to face and to see the breadth of the UK textile industry.


    One of the main reasons to come to MTM is to network – not only with manufacturers but also with your industry peers. We aim to make the show friendly and welcoming – the ideal platform for helping you to ‘Make it British!’
