Newsletter Listing intro for week 22

Good morning and welcome to this week’s Friday Brief.

We are launching a new series of regional networking events for members. The first of these new events will be a breakfast meeting held on Tuesday 5th July at NICe - Nikken Innovation Centre Europe in Rotherham, South Yorkshire. For full details please see the story below. Places are strictly limited, so if you would like to attend email Alice Smith in the events team to reserve your spot today asmith@mta.org.uk.

After the great success of the first UK Surface Engineering Industry event, which last year saw over 150 delegates attend, the MTA and Cranfield University are happy to announce a second, fully open, conference in this series which will be held on 30th June 2016 at the main Cranfield University campus.

We are offering Members the chance to have table top exhibition spaces at the conference to network with attendees at this high profile event. The exhibition area will open during all breaks which have been designed to give maximum networking time. For further details please contact Alice Smith via asmith@mta.org.uk.

Sticking with Cranfield University, they are offering a 20% discount for MTA members on the first year of their Cyber Secure Manufacturing course. This course combines Cranfield's long standing expertise for delivering high-quality Masters programmes in the manufacturing, and security and defence sectors. Full details on how to apply for the course can be found below.

There is a sad note too to this week’s Brief - Leonard Simonis, who many members will have known as the man behind Ellesco, passed away on Tuesday after a short battle with cancer. We’re sure members will join us in sending our condolences to Leonard’s son Vincent, his family and friends.

The MTA business survey for May is now live on the website, please follow the link and complete at www.mta.org.uk/mta-business-survey-may16.

Finally MTA CEO James Selka is embarking on an epic bike ride for charity next week.  The ride is in support of Help the Heroes - Big Battlefield Bike Ride 2016 (BBBR16). The trip itself runs from the 5th to 11th June, starting in Verdun, France and concluding in Ypres, Belgium. Over the five days the cyclists will cover 350 miles, approximately 70 miles per day come rain, hail, wind or shine. If you would like to sponsor James there is still time, just follow this link https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/James-Selka.

We all wish him well on this adventure and look forward to him returning with a few tales to tell from the saddle.

That’s it for this week, we’ll be back next Friday with more industry news.
