Newsletter Listing intro for week 29

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

We’re are pleased to announce that booking is now open for the MTA Annual Dinner 2017. After holding the event in Birmingham for a number of years now, the dinner is returning to London. The event will be held at The Park Plaza Westminster Bridge on Thursday 23rd March 2017 and will be hosted by Alexander Armstrong. See the below story to find out how you can attend, don’t delay book you place today.

We are currently reviewing our services to Members, as part of this we are looking at what we offer to Members interested in exporting. If you’ve not done so already, please take 2 minutes to complete this survey and help better inform us on how we can represent you www.mta.org.uk/export-survey.

The European Lean Educator Conference 2016 (ELEC 2016) takes place between 12th September 2016 – 15th September 2016 and you can find out who’s speaking and how to attend this conference in the below story.

Staying on the conference theme, the Autumn courses, conferences and events at IfM have been announce and we have details of all the courses within the Brief.

The deadline of the exhibition application for JIMTOF2016 is over, but the applications for Catalogue Exhibition Corner, which will be set up at JIMTOF2016, are now being accepted. Please see the below story for more details on how you can submit your entry. 

The latest report from the Bank of England’s Agents’ provides further evidence that the UK manufacturing sector was improving ahead of the EU referendum, but also reflects some post-vote contacts which suggest that there is likely to be an impact on investment decisions over the next 12 months or so, although existing spending probably won’t be cut.  Although investment intentions continued to point to modest growth, there were some reports of decisions being delayed ahead of the Referendum.  Don’t forget that we are still gathering members views on your priorities for the post-Brexit business environment and you can access these questions (only two of them) at http://www.mta.org.uk/brexit-survey (members who responded to the recent Business Survey will already have answered these).

That’s all for this week, we’ll back next Friday with more industry news, until then have a great weekend from everyone at the MTA.
