Supply Chain North East is delighted to return to EMCON as a silver sponsor with an even bigger Supply Chain Village in 2022.

The Supply Chain Village has been developed to exclusively offer the opportunity for beneficiaries of the programme to exhibit at EMCON where they will see the value that attendance and showcasing at the right exhibitions can bring to their business.

John Heslop, Business Advisor from Supply Chain North East, said:

“Our aim is to raise awareness amongst our clients of the value and opportunities that exhibiting at the right conferences and Expos can bring in terms of generating new partnerships, accessing new markets; winning new contracts and generating sales. EMCON provides the perfect space for our clients to experience first-hand the value of this kind of event, change their mindset and highlight the value of strategic networking to generate business.”

In 2022 the Supply Chain Village has 16 exhibitors including; Ford Aerospace; IVICs; Slaters Electrical; Hytorc; Test Driven Solutions; Calibrated Energy; RTTS; Accedo; MSI Engineering; Decerna; HQ Fabrications.

Previous exhibitors in the Supply Chain Village in 2021 have seen real long term benefits, creating new working partnerships, making new contacts, and generating new sales.

Alan Whittaker, Programme Manager of the Supply Chain Programme said:

“EMCON is a long running event that is well known and generates significant high quality footfall, so it is the perfect place to exhibit in order to win new business and make excellent connections with not just the 100 exhibitors but also the 1000 visitors to the Show. Last years’ event was exceptional and I am sure that this years will be even better. We are delighted to be partnering with the team at EMN for their annual showcase event for the second year.”
