Making connections is the cornerstone to success

02 February 2023 #TNB News

One of the key benefits of being a member of SMMT is the targeted networking opportunities that we provide, such as our member-only groups and committees, which are an excellent way to build relationships with prospective customers in specific fields through regular interaction, as well as being a platform for industry representation.

SMMT also has a portfolio of prestigious industry conferences, events and roadshows, like Electrified 2023 taking place in Westminster on 16 March, with members qualifying for free place, presenting the ideal opportunity to develop connections with influential stakeholders.

The CV Show during 18-20 April is another example, with leading and emerging CV sector, supply chain and aftermarket companies exhibiting their products and services. Last year the attendance surpassed 11,000, making it the leading industry event in 2022 and a great networking opportunity.

Next week, members will access the corridors of power upon National Apprenticeship Week, with SMMT hosting an Apprentice Showcase at Portcullis House in Westminster for the automotive industry to showcase their apprenticeship schemes and talented apprentices to MPs.

As the sector faces great challenges to decarbonise and deliver advanced technology in the UK and beyond this year, building connections and collaborating together on new solutions will be the cornerstone of success, and there is no better place to do so than via SMMT’s network.
