NWAA Annual Conference Theme – “Delivering the Growth Forecasts of the Global Aerospace and Defence Markets”.
The NWAA 2017 Conference takes part on Thursday, May 18th at the Dunkenhalgh Hotel and promises to be an event which you cannot afford to miss.
Aerospace and Defence (A&D) Customers are increasingly bullish about the prospects for growth. As the delivery of that growth becomes a priority, cost reduction and performance management become increasingly important for A&D Customers. In response, the industry is changing at an ever faster pace with the introduction of new technologies and automation. Innovation is real and markets are being disrupted. New markets and new business models are being created. Digital technology is driving more connected platforms and supply chains. World-class skills and a pipeline of new talent have become a necessity to meet programme rate increases and compete with new entrants. A&D Customers are worried about supply chain risk and need greater visibility and collaboration across the supply chain network. Unlocking the potential of the supply chain is key to delivering the growth in the UK A&D sector.
Our conference will bring together senior A&D leaders from across the UK to present their views and discuss with our members how we can deliver against that fantastic global A&D market opportunity in front of us.
