Advanced Engineering celebrates 10 years with bigger show

Advanced Engineering 2018, the UK’s largest exhibition for advanced engineering professionals, is celebrating its 10th anniversary by being bigger than ever and introducing a new Nuclear Engineering zone.

This builds on the success of the 2017 exhibition, where attendance increased by 15% on the previous year. Visitors stayed on average just under three hours at the show, many looking for new products and services, according to the show organisers Easyfairs.

“Happy 10th birthday to the Advanced Engineering Show! We have hit double figures and are expecting a record response from visitors and exhibitors this year,” said Alison Willis, industrial divisional director at Easyfairs. “The new Nuclear Engineering zone will tap into the technical excellence of this high growth sector, addressing nuclear energy new-build, operation and supply chain. This has huge importance for the energy security of the country, and provides a great opportunity for companies to join a new and dynamic supply chain”

The other show zones are: Aerospace Engineering, Composites Engineering, Automotive Engineering, Performance Metals and, building on its hugely successful 2017 launch, Connected Manufacturing. In addition, the Enabling Innovation showcase is coming back this year. It provides a unique opportunity for 50 start-ups and researchers to showcase the next generation of exciting new technologies.

Last year the UK’s largest meeting place for advanced engineers attracted some of the industry’s biggest names including Airbus; Boeing; Jaguar Land Rover; Hexcel; and Dassault Systèmes, who met and did business across the supply chain, with visitors from a range of engineering specialisms including: automation, design and test engineering, process control, machining and many more.

The two-day open conference, which is accredited by the CPD Accreditation Service Continuing Professional Development (CPD), will have a raft of high profile speakers and topics. Visitors will see variety of cutting edge technology and materials from exhibitors as well as show floor features.

“The Advanced Engineering show is a fantastic opportunity to support our industry partners when meeting new clients. Last year was no exception, and indeed has been the most successful ever, delivering more leads, more contact with suppliers and, as importantly, the ability to meet TenCate’s existing customers and partners,” commented John Darlington, exhibitor TenCate’s Global Director Product and Market Strategy.

Roz Bird, Commercial Director of Silverstone Park, commented: “The Advanced Engineering Show has exceeded our expectations – hosting the VIP Lounge in the middle of such a big industry event and offering people the chance to chat over coffee in informal and comfortable surroundings was one hundred per cent the right thing to do. It’s made for a brilliant couple of days of networking. In fact, I have always thought the show has the right sort of audience for us in terms of advanced engineering, electronics and software development and that has proven to be very true.”

The show takes place on the 31 October to 1 November, at the NEC, Birmingham, UK.
