Conference will discuss the future of manufacturing

September 28, 2018 by  

The Manufacturing Matters conference is taking place next month in London.

A presentation of the London Economic Development Corporation and the London Region Manufacturing Council, the day will start off with a breakfast where those attending will have plenty of opportunities to network with their fellow professionals and business peers.

The emcee for the event will be Jason Bates, who will be welcoming attendees as well as moderating a panel discussion. The keynote address will be delivered by Jeremy Tallevi from Nestlé Canada.

Attendees can then choose between several concurrent breakout sessions on topics such as cyber risk, the latest manufacturing research, workplace investigations and design. Among the speakers will be Peter White, Jessica Foster, Cameron Ellis and Candace M. Miller.

The conference will also feature a number of exhibit tables where local companies will be showcasing their newest products or discussing their services. Organizers are still taking applications for exhibit tables; the cost is $500 for a 10 x 10-foot table. No doubt most attending will be bringing along business cards, most likely ordered from London stationery printers.

Manufacturing Matters will be held at the London Convention Centre next Thurday, October 4, from 7:30 AM to 12:30 PM. Admission is free for those in the manufacturing industry and $50 for all others. Call 519-661-4545 for the most current information.
