Leading figures from some of the North East’s renowned manufacturing organisations will discuss how clear and connected marketing has been critical to growth. Aimed specifically at manufacturing organisations, delegates will be provided with key industry insight in to how a focused marketing strategy will support future growth ambitions.

With the aim to drive discussions, share best practice and implement fundamental marketing advice, the event will help to sustain and grow the manufacturing space within the North East. As official and strategic marketing partner of the Advanced Manufacturing Forum (AMF), Horizon Works will be hosting its next marketing club on Thursday 29 November 2018 at Durham County Cricket Club.

Hyperdrive Innovation brings to the market clean energy alternatives to fossil fuels. With dedicated manufacturing facilities in Sunderland and Asia, Stephen will tell the story of his product roadmap, from initial design concepts right through to volume production, all in effort to cater to the world’s demand for cleaner air.
