Newsletter Listing intro for week 20

Welcome to the Friday Brief for the 18th of May.

We’ve a fair few notices of forthcoming events this week as well as a competition you might like to think about entering.

There are a number of major machine tool trade shows one the horizon, starting with Metalloobrabotka in Moscow next month. September sees IMTS in Chicago – and we’ve got more details about UKTI funding to attend below. IMTEX is in Bangalore in January and CIMT in Beijing in April. MTA will be attending them all and we will be pleased to advise you about how you might participate; through taking a stand or the help that MTA Russia and MTA China can provide.

There’s also Farnborough in July where we have a stand available for member’s use. Contact the MTA Office for further details.

We are hosting not one, but two Golf Days over the summer/autumn. The 12th July sees the annual inter-association event hosted by the MTA at the Leicestershire Golf Club and the 20th September is a day for MTA members and their guests to enjoy at the same prestigious course. Full details below.

If you want to break into the supply chain for the new generation of Nuclear facilities then read the details below about a useful breakfast meeting being hosted by the University of Sunderland on 29th May. One of the focuses will be how to access a Knowledge Transfer Partnership, which places a graduate in your business.

Do you feel that your company has something to shout about? If so then you might like to take a look at entering The Manufacturer’s annual awards, there are details of the categories below.

The MACH 2012 visitor survey is in the field this week. If you visited the show but were not an exhibitor and have received the email, sent from the MTA’s marketing contractor Adfield Group, please take the time to fill it in.

Finally we have the latest economic news from Geoff Noon. He reports on some mixed data released this week, with UK growth still in the mire but some key export markets such as Germany and the USA reporting stronger figures.

Have a Good Weekend.
