Horizon Works to support manufacturing and engineering companies with new events programme

B2B marketing company and NOF corporate sponsor Horizon Works has launched a new events programme of workshops and webinars for manufacturing and engineering businesses.

Horizon Works’ ‘Opportunities Series’ of events, which are being run in conjunction with industry partners, will be highlighting regional and national opportunities for engineering and manufacturing companies.

The first in the series will be 'The Northumberland Opportunity' in association with Advance Northumberland on 19th September at Horizon Works’ Event Space at Northumberland Business Park near Cramlington.

At this event, Advance Northumberland will be presenting on developments in Northumberland's key industrial sectors (including renewable energy), the support available to businesses, development sites, supply chain opportunities, skills and workforce development initiatives, and what’s on the horizon for the area. The event is free for manufacturing and engineering businesses, and also includes lunch, networking and a panel discussion.

This will be followed by ‘The Defence Opportunity’ on 24th October with guest speaker Andrew Kinniburgh, Director-General at Make UK Defence. The event will shine the spotlight on the opportunities available for North East-based manufacturing and engineering companies in the defence industry. 

In addition, Horizon Works has launched a 'Get Prepped for 2024' workshops and webinars series. This programme of events is geared up to help businesses review, plan and prepare their marketing for 2024. The sessions will be informative and interactive, and will cover market insight and strategy, getting the best out of LinkedIn, and marketing and brand essentials.

The first in the series of 12 events, Marketing Insight and Strategy Workshop – Get Prepped for 2024, will take place at Horizon Works’ Event Space on 14th November. It will include tips on understanding market research and data, defining sales and marketing objectives, marketing tactics and channels and guidance on creating a marketing strategy and plan.
