Four business-led sector organisations are coming together to host a unique Cross Sector Open House. The event is being delivered by Aerospace Unlocking Potential*, which is led by the University of Nottingham in Partnership with the Midlands Aerospace Alliance, and supports companies to diversify into and out of aerospace and aviation.

Midlands Aerospace Alliance, Medilink Midlands, Rail Forum and the Motorsport Industry Association will share their knowledge of recent developments and current and future opportunities for SMEs across the Midlands. Case study SMEs will demonstrate how they have successfully diversified into other sectors.

Teams from the four organisations will be on hand to field enquiries about their sector. Additional support is available through Aerospace UP for any SMEs wanting to diversify into (or from) aerospace, aviation, space or advanced air mobility.

We know that great ideas and technologies from businesses that are experts in one sector can be applied to solve problems in another – this event is designed to help things along by providing a forum for Midlands companies to network across all sectors and learn from one another.

This event is free to attend for Midlands SMEs.
