NMI: Meet and Greet event 24th November 2021 at the Holiday Inn, Newport.

The global semiconductor industry has drawn an increasing amount of attention in recent times as it is not only economically important, it is also a strategic sector that is vulnerable to supply issues. It should be of little surprise that national governments are reviewing their positions as a consequence – including the UK government – as we emerge, post-Brexit and post-pandemic.

And as we look to re-connect, its critically important for industry to re-establish working relationships, seek new partnerships, and catch up on developments that may have been missed while we’ve all been away. Perhaps you’re even looking for a new opening, or to find a few (perhaps young) new recruits too?

Specifically designed to help the UK’s semiconductor industry emerge together and strong,the NMI: Meet and Greet was an ideal opportunity to network and re-engage.

We tend to think of Meet and Greet as a supply chain event, yet it is much more than this as it brings together a rich and diverse set of stakeholder groups including Manufacturers, Designers, Suppliers, Universities and students too, as they consider their future career opportunities.
