The Welsh Business Show, Carmarthenshire 2017

On 16th July, Project METaL were delighted to attend the Welsh Business Show held in Parc Y Scarlets, Llanelli.

The event was well attended by businesses and delegates and really lived up to the reputation that the show has built up over the past eight years. The event promised to deliver maximum exposure to businesses, and to provide a quality show that offered long lasting value to its delegates. Based on the METaL Project experience, the event really delivered on this billing.

The METaL Project attended the show with colleagues from across Swansea University whose common aim is to deliver programmes of support for businesses, and respond to business needs and requirements.

The Swansea University delegate stand was represented by The METaL Project, The Academic Partnership Directorate (APD), The Materials and Manufacturing Academy (M2A) and the ION Leadership Programme.
