About PPMA Conference
Inaugural PPMA Conference took take place on
23 May 2019
National Conference Centre, Birmingham
This one-day business intelligence and networking event was designed to give PPMA member companies (and non-members too) information on an array of hot and emerging topics pertaining to the processing and packaging machinery industry.
The Conference attracted several established speakers, which came together to talk about smart manufacturing (in a post-Brexit world), finance, sustainability, plus provide information on contract negotiation, innovation and staff retention.
The event also looked at the more humorous side of sales and marketing, along with how suppliers can become a real source of value creation in the advent of increasing globalisation.
In addition to a rich speaker programme, it was an opportunity for members to engage with industry experts and influencers alike, while liaising with other delegates to learn about new tools, tactics and expand their network of contacts.
Attendees were also given FREE access to Lloyds Bank’s International Trade Portal to search for suppliers and buyers alike to work with as trading partners.
