The show, founded by Kate Hills, will take place on 29-30 May at the Business Design Centre, in London’s Islington.
It was previously located at Old Truman Brewery in east London.
Hills said: “The move to the Business Design Centre presents a great opportunity for UK manufacturers to showcase what they do in a beautiful venue that is filled with natural light and steeped in history.
“Our new home will help us to realise our ambitions of expanding the show into product areas other than just fashion and textiles, to keep up with the demand for local manufacturing post Brexit.”
Make it British Live began in 2014 and was originally called Meet the Manufacturer. In 2018 it changed its name to Make it British Live to more closely align the event with the Make it British website, and to reflect its mission to encourage more businesses to make in Britain.
The 2019 edition will welcome more than 200 exhibitors across the fashion and homeware sectors.
