Regional Events

SMMT organise a series of regional events throughout the year for UK automotive companies in the North, Midlands and South.

  • The SMMT Regional Forums focus on opportunities for UK automotive companies in the North, South and Midlands, as well as insights and guidance on the potential impact of Brexit on the sector.

    Content includes a range of expert presentations from speakers who have included Honda, Nissan and Ford in addition to SMMT CEO Mike Hawes.

    These are must-attend events for those looking to network with key contacts within the UK automotive sector. Our last event had over 180 delegates in attendance, from OEMs and tier 1s, to medium and small suppliers.
