Meet the Manufacturer, the sourcing trade show and conference created by Make it British has teamed up with the UK Fashion and Textile Association (UKFT) to launch a new initiative at its upcoming event in June, known as ‘Meet the Buyer.’

The new sessions will offer exhibiting manufacturers unique networking opportunities with key buyers in a specially designation area in order for both parties to fully maximise their service and products. “Following feedback after last year’s show, we’re confident that there is a demand for this type of unique workshop,” commented Kate Hills, founder and CEO of Make it British. “Our close connections with manufacturers, coupled with the UKFT’s extensive retailer relationships, make this the ideal partnership to pioneer something like this.”

John Miln, CEO of UKFT added: “We’re delighted to have the opportunity to work together with Make it British on this exciting new concept at their Meet the Manufacturer event. We continue to encourage the industry to work collaboratively on restoring production to the UK. The values and purpose of Meet the Manufacturer fit perfectly with ours - to bring together fashion industry buyers and manufacturers for an inclusive British networking event.”

The next Meet the Manufacturer event will take place at Tobacco Dock in London, on June 3 to 4, 2015.
