The conference, workshops and exhibition, which open for two days on July 8th-9th at the Metro Radio Arena, Newcastle, focuses on UK innovation and inspiring the next generation of manufacturers and engineers.

The conference sessions, led by senior manufacturing and engineering professionals, look to address the skills gap in this sector.

With the new government announcing 3 million more apprenticeships, EEF looks into the detail of the strategy for UK engineering and manufacturing. Visitors can find out how 90 North East primary schools are embracing engineering by teaching the subject to their students, and why the region is fast growing a reputation as an industrial powerhouse; the North East Auto Alliance looks at the achievements of the UK’s largest car plant in Sunderland, and MSD explains how Northumberland’s pharmaceutical production is beating global rivals.
