Meet the Manufacturer, the only major conference and sourcing event specifically for British manufacturers of clothing, textiles and leather goods, has announced Segura as the headline sponsor for this year’s event in May.Segura’s innovative software enables businesses to understand, monitor and control their supply chains, allowing them to make cost savings and mitigate risk. The company works with customers across a range of industries, including textile manufacturing and retail.
Kate Hills, CEO and founder of Make it British, explains: “We’re delighted to be working in partnership with Segura for our next event. Their innovative and transparent approach to supply-chain issues makes them the perfect partner for Meet the Manufacturer, which is the platform for leading industry figures to come together to support UK manufacturing. This comes at a time when there’s an ever-growing enthusiasm and passion for reinstating Britain as the world centre for fashion and textile production and we look forward to working together.”
Peter Needle, CEO and co-founder of Segura, adds: “We’re very proud to be the headline sponsor of Meet the Manufacturer 2016. British brands are more aware than ever of the value of manufacturing in the UK and this event represents a key date in the retail calendar. Supply chain integrity is important to any retail operation, so we’re working with UK businesses to help them gain the oversight they need to see where each and every one of their product components is coming from. The aims of Meet the Manufacturer complement Segura perfectly, so we were keen to get involved.”
Meet the Manufacturer is going from strength to strength. Now in its third year, the next event takes place on 25 and 26 May 2016 at The Old Truman Brewery, London. It promises to be bigger and better than ever before, with double the amount of space at 50,000 sq ft, compared to last year, to accommodate more stands in the exhibition and more workshops and seminars than in previous years.
