Partners set to support manufacturers at industry's first virtual B2B expo

We’re excited to be supporting Made in Yorkshire for a first of its kind event that expects to bring together over 5,000 people representing the Yorkshire and Midlands manufacturing industries next month. 
Backing Britain Live (#BBLive2020) will run from 17-28 August. The virtual expo will include over 30 virtual events, a speaker line-up that includes the former Aston Martin CEO, Brompton Bicycles and Williams F1, more than 100 exhibitors at a virtual exhibition plus a series of round table discussions led by Lloyds Bank, BHP Chartered Accountants, Brewin Dolphin and Clarion Solicitors on topics including financial wellbeing, accessing R&D Tax Credits, and the economic outlook for the manufacturing sector. 
Partners director Karen Tinkler says, “This is the first time we’ve seen a virtual manufacturing industry event on this scale, and it’s exciting to be part of it. 
“Our team will be running a workshop before the event to help exhibitors and delegates get the most out of their attendance, and will be on hand during the two-week expo via live chats from our virtual exhibition stand to answer manufacturers’ questions about how they can use PR, communications and digital marketing to build stronger businesses as they emerge from the Covid-19 crisis. 
“If that sounds like your cup of tea, why not pop the kettle on and join us for a brew and a chat about all things communications? We’ll even supply the tea: everyone who books a slot for a live chat during the event will get a cuppa on us.” 
The Partners Group has worked with manufacturing businesses for over 30 years across a range of sectors including food and drink, building products, glass and glazing, rail, marine and aerospace. The agency joined Made in Yorkshire as a patron in 2019 to support and champion the region’s manufacturing sector.
