Manufacturing the future: navigating uncertainty and     rising to the challenge
    In times of political uncertainty and rising     cost pressures, the months ahead pose considerable challenges for UK     manufacturers; but there are also opportunities that may not yet have     been found or realised.
    With UK manufacturing performing strongly, as firms diversify product     ranges; invest in new technology and infrastructure; and explore new     territories and trade relationships, clear opportunities are emerging.     New orders are increasing in North America, Asia Pacific and the Middle     East, as well as mainland Europe, as overseas demand for UK exports     intensifies. How can firms make the most of these opportunities for their     business and clients while avoiding the risks inherent in overseas trade?     Realise opportunities and mitigate risks
    We bring together a panel of professionals to identify both the     opportunities and challenges before us and to discuss ways to forge a     path forward. The session will be chaired by Atul Kariya, MHA MacIntyre     Hudson Partner and National Sector Head for Manufacturing and Engineering.    
    Each panellist will present their take on the key priorities for British     manufacturers, followed by an open Q&A session and debate.
