The 2022 National Manufacturing Summit focused on three core themes providing a clear focus on the UK's charge to net-zero - Fossil Fuels to Renewables, Factory to Door and Field to Fork.

These themes created a clear agenda for the Summit and our expert speakers as the two day event focused on the transformational potential and support required to create a more sustainable, greener future across a series of key industrial sectors. These included energy production, logistics and transportation, agriculture and food production alongside other topics that impact the thousands of UK based manufacturers that produce the consumables that fuel our economy.
