Of course, it is not enough to simply salute those who implement best practice: spreading the word is equally important. To this end, Management Today and Cranfield School of Management, in association with sponsors Ernst & Young, will be hosting the 1997 Best Factory Conference at the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham. Now in its fourth year, the conference will be held on Wednesday 24 and Thursday 25 September 1997.

The conference has been designed specifically with the dissemination of manufacturing excellence in mind. Delegates with have the opportunity to learn from the 1996 award winners, who represent plants spanning the whole industrial spectrum, from margarine manufacture to opto-electronics. They will detail the processes and techniques that attracted the judges' attention, the thinking and reasoning behind them, the improvements they have brought about and how best to put them into practice.

Featured winners from last year will be Sun Microsystems, Van den Bergh Foods, Fujitsu Telecom, Pilkington PE and the Amtico Company. The conference will also include addresses by professor Daniel Jones of Cardiff Business School and one of the UK's foremost experts on lean enterprises, Marek Szwejczewski, senior research fellow at Cranfield School of Management, and professor Colin New, chairman of the judges. After each presentation there will be question and answer sessions where delegates will have the chance to quiz some of Britain's best businesses on their winning ways.

For further information and to reserve your place, call Tania Cassell on 0171 413 4116 or fax 0171 413 4486. Group discounts are available.
