For the first time ever, on 7 and 8 October, Warwickshire-based Seco Tool UK’s
annual Inspiration through Innovation
event will be hosted entirely online, making it accessible to delegates from all over the world and alleviating safety and travel concerns facing customers.
Michael Fleming, marketing manager for global sales at Seco Tools, said: “By going virtual, we are proud to show that Seco continues to innovate – not just our engineering solutions – but also the way we do business. The added benefit of a virtual event is that we can welcome people who may not have been able to attend in the past.”
Like last year, the event programme is focused exclusively on the aerospace segment, and true to the event’s seven-year history, it continues to highlight and demonstrate the power of partnership and the benefits available to component manufacturers of adopting collaborative approaches to problem solving.
David Magnall, innovation partnership manager at Seco Tools UK, said: “It has been incredible to see the continued dedication and commitment to Inspiration through Innovation this year from our technical partners. The thing that makes the event different is that, year after year, we continue to demonstrate the success that can be achieved when we bring our expertise together to find solutions to our customers’ manufacturing challenges.”Inspiration through Innovation 2020
