Made in Group, including both Made in the Midlands, and Made in Yorkshire have launched a brand new, year-long campaign designed to act as a beacon of unity, and to restore confidence in Britain.

The fourth Backing Britain event will be taking place at Made in Yorkshire member premises Appris, located in Bradford, on the 20th of February 2020.

The event will include presentations from industry leaders on how manufacturers across the nation can promote British industry to safeguard its future and create a lasting legacy.

Speaking at the second Backing Britain event at Outokumpu, founder and Director of the Made in Group, Jason Pitt said:

"Communities don’t tend to come together in good times, they come together in times of uncertainty and challenges. I think it is really important for us to unite and see each other as neighbours, which is exactly what Backing Britain is about.”

Please note, this event is open to Made in the Yorkshire member businesses, one ticket per company. Each ticket holder will be kindly asked to invite a VIP guest of their choice from a fellow manufacturing and engineering business inside the Yorkshire region to attend.
