The UK manufacturing industry looks to the future with baited breath following the results of the EU referendum. As the wider UK economy remains unpredictable, the results of the referendum could represent a unique opportunity for the manufacturing sector should businesses consider the tactical, short-term implications and realise the importance of maintaining a focus on long-term strategic planning.

Speaking about the future of the UK manufacturing sector, the Rt. Hon Lord Francis Maude, former Minister of State for Trade and Investment will join visitors at this year’s PPMA Total Show to open the 2016 exhibition and deliver the opening address on both the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. Appearing on the PPMA Total seminar stage on the first day of the show (Tuesday 27 September) Lord Francis Maude will discuss the outcome of the recent EU referendum and reveal the future plans for the government’s ‘Exporting is Great’ campaign.

PPMA3March2016The PPMA Total Show 2016 will not only see headline speakers like the Rt. Hon Lord Francis Maude but a range of industry experts who can offer insight and advice on the future of the UK manufacturing industry. Also confirmed to speak at this year’s PPMA Total Show, Emma De-Alwis, Hygiene Specialist at Campden BRI, Claire Shrewsbury, Packaging Programme Manager for WRAP, Elliot Woolley, Lecturer for the Centre for Sustainable Manufacturing & Recycling Technologies (SMART) at Loughborough University and Joanna Stephenson, Director for Women in Packaging will join the line up to discuss a wide range of highly topical issues including contaminated food products, food and packaging waste, self-optimising Cleaning in Place (CIP) systems as well as the gender balance in the UK packaging industry.

Demonstrating the Latest Innovations in Manufacturing

Attendees to Hall 5 at the NEC in September can also find out more about the latest trends and innovations taking the industry by storm. With returning exhibitors, Bosch Packaging Technology, Schubert, and Festo, already confirmed to join the line-up, organisers are confident that the 2016 show will be bigger and better than ever before.

In fact, since the PPMA shows returned to the full control of the association in 2013, the size of its events has increased by circa 25% year-on-year. The latest edition – PPMA Total 2016 – is already 50% larger than the first show of the new regime in 2014. With over 400 exhibitors, the event has already firmly established itself as the industry event not to be missed with 2016 set to be one of the biggest and highly anticipated events yet.

PPMA1July2015New PPMA Group CEO, Andrew Mint, who joined the association on the 1st February 2016, says: “The PPMA Total Show 2016 is set to be biggest yet and the show is a great opportunity for businesses to get their brand, products and equipment in front of a high profile audience and celebrate the innovation that the industry has to offer. The show is a fantastic platform to highlight the latest innovations whilst also bringing some of the industry’s biggest issues to the fore such as the skills gap. I’m looking forward to seeing some the most exciting recent technological developments in our industry on show, as well as hearing from some of the industry’s leading figures at the PPMA Total seminar theatre.”
