Reasons to Attend
Welcome from Nick Shields
Director, Scottish Manufacturing Advisory Service
I can’t believe its two years since the last SMAS conference in 2014! I can promise this year’s event will be even bigger and better, relocating to the Westerwood Hotel in Cumbernauld to accommodate this growing event. As usual, we have a fantastic programme of inspirational keynote speakers and practical workshops and this year we’ve added in an optional programme of site visits on the 7 th to allow you to link best practice during these ‘go look see’ visits to what you’ll learn during the conference on the 8 th . Also new this year is the Fringe Event, where you can hear quick fire pitches from a range of providers who can support your business.
This is the only event of its kind in Scotland, bringing together manufacturing professionals, public sector and stakeholders to debate, learn and network. I look forward to seeing you there!
Nick Shields, Director, Scottish Manufacturing Advisory Service
