The MTA Forecast Seminar will take place on Thursday 21st October at The Willows Centre, Wyboston Lakes Resort, Bedfordshire;  registration will be open from 0930 for a prompt start at 1000.  We are pleased to say that this is being sponsored by MTA Associate Member Marsh Commercial who will be available on the day to discuss any issues around insurance, risk management and employee health and benefits.

Our speakers this year will include Ben May (Director of Global Macroeconomic Research at Oxford Economics) who will cover the macro-economic outlook, Jeremy Leonard  (Director of Global Industry Services at Oxford Economics) who will cover the industrial landscape with a particular focus on the key customer sectors for MTA members and MTA Statistician Geoff Noon who will draw the various themes together in our new forecasts for the market for machine tools and cutting tools.

For more details and to reserve your space at this in-person event, please go to  We will, of course, make the presentations and documents available for MTA members after the event but one thing we have all discovered over the past 18 months or so is that there is nothing like being there in person and having the opportunity to ask questions or discuss particular points with colleagues and presenters.  We hope to see you there!
