Exclusive invitation to MIA Members

A Business Development Showcase at Jaguar Land Rover

The first MIA members-only Showcase event INSIDE the Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) Engineering Centre at Whitley - the fully integrated Design, Research and Development centre for all current Jaguar Products

The need for Motorsport and Automotive to work more closely together has never been more apparent and keenly supported. Richard Parry–Jones OBE, Joint Chair of the Automotive Council, has significant Government support to put the UK ahead in low carbon auto developments, and proposed this Motorsport to Automotive initiative at the MIA’s Conference in January.

Jaguar Land Rover has invited over 4,000 production and design engineers and 50 leading executives to meet MIA delegates and find ways to use their expertise to deliver lightweight material and low carbon solutions FAST. MIA members signed up for the event to date include:

Delta Composites, Jonathan Lee Recruitment, Millers Oils, AMC Network, Autodesk, Capricorn Automotive, Moog Controls, Stack, Alcon, i-composites, United Springs, Performance Friction Brakes, Cosworth, Goodridge, Xtrac, Delcam, Metalweb, Birchills Automotive, Langstone Engineering, Lola, CRP Technology, Williams Hybrid, OCF, Warwickshire Investment Partnership, Crompton Technology Group, ThyssenKrupp Materials (UK), Gallay, 2B Interface, Rapitypes, PTI, Young Calibration, Palmer PR, Nuvex & Delcam.

Chris Aylett, MIA CEO says, “Now is the time for MIA members to pro-actively engage with Automotive Council OEMs and Technology Strategy Board to help deliver their low-carbon plans. Key to success is for innovative motorsport businesses to work with mainstream OEMs and Tier Ones – this JLR event is the start of an exciting and profitable journey”.

JLR moved fast to offer this privileged invitation to MIA members to showcase their capabilities, right in the heart of JLR R&D activity, to build new business relationships.
