Competitiveness in a brave new world; A lot has changed since we last met at the South West's Aerospace Conference in February last year. The political landscape in the UK is changing beyond recognition, and the climate for international trade and collaboration is in a long period of transition.

  • How has this impacted your business?

  • How should the Aerospace sector responded to ensure that it remains fitter, more agile, and stronger to capitalise on an exciting period of sustained growth and prosperity? 

Whatever your view, join us at the 2017 WEAF Annual Conference and Exhibition and engage with aerospace industry and local government experts in the South West, and make the most of your opportunity to contribute to the debate.

The 2017 WEAF Annual Conference and Exhibition is set to be the most successful to date, at the newly refurbished and prestigious Ashton Gate Stadium (free onsite parking) – an ideal venue for WEAF and the South West aerospace sector to showcase the incredible breadth and depth of capability that exists in the region.
