Technical PR agency Stone Junction is sponsoring the 2024 National Manufacturing Summit (NMS), taking place at the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) on March 14. The convention of British manufacturers, advanced engineering companies and broader government, funding and academic stakeholders will be the first public, in-person debut of Stone Junction’s new branding. NMS is a hybrid event, run simultaneously in person and online by MTC Events, and is free to attend. More information and tickets can be found here.

 NMS returns after a successful 2023 event, which attracted in-person representatives from 265 companies and nearly 6,000 online participants. The 2024 conference promises to be even bigger, with keynote speeches on The Exponential Age from Arash Ghazanfari, CTO of Dell Technologies and Reimagining Human Flight from Richard Browning, founder and chief test pilot of Gravity Industries.

Elyn Corfield, CEO for business and commercial banking at Lloyds Banking Group, will give a keynote address on the skills gap and workforce challenges facing British manufacturing and engineering in both the short- and long-term future.

“The manufacturing industry has been facing some difficult challenges in light of the skills shortage, rising prices and supply chain difficulties,” explained Leah Elston-Thompson, account director at Stone Junction. “But there are also huge opportunities. NMS is a great event, attracting incredible speakers and an engaged pool of delegates, to discuss the latest developments and how we can collectively drive British manufacturing forward.”

Stone Junction is a specialist STEM agency, with more than 50 clients from the science, tech, engineering and manufacturing industries. The company provides consultancy and brand strategy, creative PR and marketing, branding, design, and content services, and will be available to discuss how it can support delegates at the event.
