Meet the Mittelstand

A one day conference exploring the success of Germany’s Mittelstand, the privately owned manufacturing and
technology focused companies, will be held on 22 January 2014 at the JCB Visitor Centre, Rocester. The event is supported by the UKTI and delegate discount will be available for MTA members.

The Mittelstand have been an outstanding success in Germany and have exported across the world. The Conference aims to explore the basis of this success and what lessons British companies can learn from the Mittelstand approach.

The Meet the Mittelstand conference has four main strands namely:
1. Technology Access
2. Education and Skills
3. Corporate structure, finance and law
4. Growth strategy and exports – Case study from KOSTAL GmbH
Taken together, this programme will equip ambitious, growing manufacturing and technology companies with the knowledge of how Germany’s Mittelstand companies have become the “hidden champions” in their sectors.
Indeed, ten German companies and organisations will be contributing to the Conference to give an insight into the secrets of the Mittelstand model.

Lord Ian Livingston of Parkhead, Minister of State for UK Trade & Investment will deliver the keynote address and there will be advisers from the UKTI on hand to offer companies advice on exporting.
