Registration Open for Backing Britain Virtual Exhibition

Made News


Business operations have changed; the imposed necessity of social distancing has meant that virtual networking is the way of the present and future for now. To aid our members in embracing these changes, Made in Group have made it our mission to offer state of the art digital communication, marketing, and networking solutions to our members.

This mission is all the more pressing as, whilst some companies throughout the nation are likely to phase on-site working back within the coming months, remote working and social distancing more generally is not a reality that is likely to disappear entirely any time too soon - with many people even predicting that Covid-19 could cause a permanent shift towards remote working throughout the UK. 

With networking going virtual for the time being, Made in Group have digitalised the likes of virtual Q&As, panel discussions, masterminds and networking events. Keep reading to discover some of the major ways in which Made in Group have gone virtual to help aid their members into a seamless transition into digital and remote operations.

On 17th August 2020, Made will launch a digital exhibition "with a big difference” called Backing Britain 2020 Live - an immersive experience between the digital and physical. Book your place today:



What Is Backing Britain 2020 Live?

Here at the Made in Group, we understand the importance of exhibitions within the manufacturing sector.

Our annual exhibition is a huge part of our membership experience. Therefore, with physical events not being able to go ahead for the immediate future, Made in Group have introduced Backing Britain Live 2020 - an immersive, virtual experience. 

Jason Pitt, CEO of the Made in Group, has had this to say:

“Made in Exhibitions are significant events that many members and visitors look forward to, but like many aspects of our way of life, we have had to make considerable adjustments. Although I predict full-scale lockdown will not continue in the summer months, our government leads us to believe social distancing measures will remain for months to come. Large scale gatherings will remain unsafe until the population has some immunity or the virus is eradicated.”

“However I am pleased to say that we have found an alternative way of delivering our expos safely and innovatively.”

On 17th August 2020, Made will launch a digital exhibition “with a big difference” called Backing Britain Live 2020 - an immersive experience between the digital and physical. Jason said:

“As many of you know, we are an innovative organisation when it comes to technology; we do more than many realise. As a business, we have developed a digital platform that allows members to create their own social media microsite, upload news, attend virtual webinars and soon to include virtual mastermind groups, Q & A Sessions and panel discussions."

What Will the "Live Digital Business Festival" Offer You?

As CEO Jason Pitt has said, "The Made in Group has always had a strong technology focus.” We pride ourselves on offering state of the art digital communication, marketing, and networking solutions to our members.

Backing Britain 2020 Live will be hosted on where the entire exhibition hall will have virtual access to booths, interactive seminars and networking areas all accessible on the website. The process will be very user friendly and easy to navigate around.

Not only will visitors have a unique experience online, but will also receive physical goodie bags to their door which includes: The Backing Britain 2020, 100 pg book - consisting of positive manufacturing news and information about exhibitors, a large printed poster of the exhibition hall, a Backing Britain lanyard and social posters and more.

With more than 30 planned events over 2 weeks, some of the key elements of the exhibition will include:

  • Virual Expo Hall: A tactile and immersive digital exhibition experience, to help us unite, retain continuity and forge new connections
  • Webinars: Thought leadership and guidance on all the hot topics as we move forward from the issues of Corona
  • Conferencing: Over 30 planned events to help the community stay connected and strong through this adverse time
