WORLD experts will address the Manufacturing Institute's fourth annual Supply Chain Conference, in Manchester, on November 6 and 7.

Thanks to the Institute's status as a Regional Centre for Manufacturing Excellence, North West manufacturing companies with fewer than 250 employees can attend the two-day event for half price.

Specialists from Hewlett Packard, Sun Micro Systems, BAE Systems, Krone, Faurecia Automotive Seating UK, Airbus UK, Alstom, MK Cable Management, IESA and CSC UK, will divulge their routes to best practice.

Using practical case studies, they will show manufacturers how to "shape up for supply chain supremacy".

The conference is aimed at supply chain, manufacturing, operations, purchasing and logistics professionals.

Places can be booked for both days or one day only by contacting Anne Campion on 0161 874 3206,
