Industry Forum





In light of the evolving COVID-19 situation and in line with the UK government’s recommended course of action, SMMT Industry Forum has decided, as of today, to severely restrict the use of its Birmingham office, and has implemented a home working policy for staff until 17 April. We plan to keep the situation beyond that date under review. All staff can continue to be contacted as normal on their landlines, mobile phones and via email and the main office number (+44 (0)121 717 6600) and general enquires email address ( will continue to be manned during our usual office hours of 8:30am – 4-30pm.

The wellbeing of our delegates, associates and employees is our utmost priority so all of Industry Forum’s scheduled face to face consultancy and training interventions have been postponed until further notice. We will continue to follow government advice and instruction with regard to reinstatement of our face to face services. All scheduled and subsequently cancelled engagements and training courses will be rescheduled at a mutually convenient date. A member of the team will be in contact with all those affected in due course.  

We are however continuing to support customers by offering support via video conference or conference call where appropriate and our staff will join external meetings via phone etc, rather than in person, until further notice.

We will continue to monitor the situation and will keep in close communication with customers over the days, weeks and months. Should you have any questions or concerns about this or any other issue, please don’t hesitate to call or email your regular Industry Forum contacts or +44 (0)121 717 6600 |
