eminars at Southern Manufacturing & Electronics 2010 deliver training for free

The free technical seminar programmes for Southern Manufacturing & Electronics 2010 have been announced. For many visitors – and indeed exhibitors – the technical seminar programmes are one of the highlights of the two-day exhibition that takes place at FIVE, Farnborough on 10 and 11 February.

This year’s show will once again deliver a wide-ranging programme of sessions that will be of interest to anyone involved in electronics, engineering or manufacturing enterprise.

The free seminar programme is always an extremely popular attraction of the Southern Manufacturing & Electronics show. The sessions taking place over both days of the show are a fantastic opportunity for visitors and exhibitors alike to acquire practical advice and guidance on topics affecting manufacturing business today from experts in their respective fields. No other event offers free access to such high-calibre technical and commercial expertise, and is a further compelling reason for engineering and industrial professionals to visit the show.

Two programmes will run simultaneously, focusing on manufacturing and electronics respectively, and encompassing discussions on technical developments, business management, marketing and the latest industrial legislation.

In the Manufacturing room, Secrets of Low Cost Marketing, Chris Needham from MAS-SE will examine how manufacturing businesses can extract maximum value from even the most modest marketing budgets. In his session, Rapid Manufacturing in the Future, Graham Tromans from the Rapid Manufacturing Research Group at Loughborough University will assess the impact of the latest Rapid Prototyping and Rapid Tooling techniques on future manufacturing. Collaborate to win more business presented by Clive Lewis of Achieving The Difference will look at why an increasing number of prime and tier 1 customers are awarding business to suppliers working collaboratively, plus practical advice on developing collaborations of your own.

In the Electronics room, The True Cost of Outsourcing is examined by Tony Inskip of Stadium Electronics in a revealing session that will help delegates find the best fit for their own manufacturing models. In How to Succeed at New Product Development, Grant Baker from the Manufacturing Advisory Service –South East (MAS-SE) will examine the techniques used to sort winners from losers at the earliest stages of development.

Other topics covered over a busy two days will include Six Sigma and Lean Manufacturing, Waste Management, and The Impact of EMC Directive 2004/108/EC: What Manufacturers Need To Do.

Entry to all the seminar sessions and to the show itself is completely free to business visitors, but pre-booking online is strongly advised to avoid disappointment. FIVE Farnborough offers plentiful free car parking, superb access by road, rail or air, and an excellent selection of local hotels and restaurants to make your visit as enjoyable as it is productive.
