Prism Electronics is taking part in an industry forum for key stakeholders in the electronics industry in the Eastern region.
Prisms head of operations David Bance will deliver a keynote seminar at the Cambridge Electronics Knowledge Transfer Network (EKTN) meeting taking place at BT Adastral Park, Ipswich, on Thursday 26 May.
The EKTN meeting will seek to identify key trends in electronics devices and examine important issues including supply chain management and the environment. David Bance is to deliver a presentation entitled ‘Supply Chain Trends’ in which he will examine the outsourcing of electronics manufacture and building successful supply chain partnerships.
Commenting on the event David Bance said: “Outsourcing in electronics manufacture is changing and some recent trends are reversing, including off-shoring manufacture among OEMs. Manufacturing is now being brought back closer to home.
“I aim to demonstrate key trends and show other stakeholders how they can benefit from these by forming strategic manufacturing partnerships.
“The Cambridge EKTN is the ideal forum in which to exchange ideas like these and identify new industry trends.”
The Cambridge Electronics Knowledge Transfer Network event, organised by Cambridge Network and supported by The Department of Business Enterprise and Regulatory Reform (BERR) Technology Strategy Board, brings together UK capabilities across the electronics value chain, from research through to design and product development, including sales and operations to promote the sector’s global potential. It aims to facilitate knowledge transfer to help companies realise best practice and create collaborative partnerships.
The meeting will kick off with a buffet lunch and an opportunity to network following which delegates will hear David Bance as well as other industry speakers from technology consultants Sagentia among others.
