Organisers state this year’s Advanced Engineering UK group of events, to be held at NEC Birmingham on 11-12 November is already shaping up as the biggest and best yet.
UK Tech Events states Aero Engineering Show 2014, Composites Engineering Show 2014, Automotive Engineering Show 2014 and Auto Electronics 2014 will provide focused individual environments for latest technologies and solutions, product and process innovation, plus industry supply chain capability supporting current and future market requirements.
The organisers say the Aero Engineering Show 2014 represents the UK’s only dedicated show and open conference for the aero structures, power plant and aero systems engineering communities.
Reflecting UK industry’s increasing demand across diverse sectors for harnessing the benefits of composites materials, UK Tech Events claim the Composites Engineering Show 2014 is a single UK showcase of the very latest in composites materials, composites processing equipment, tooling and technologies, related design and simulation technology, specialist composites processing services, composites test and inspection technologies, and much more.
UK Tech Events explain that the Automotive Engineering Show 2014, provides a showcase of specialist UK and international engineering services, technology and supply chain partners supporting the UK’s multiple vehicle engineering programmes – from passenger cars to performance vehicles; from commercial vehicles to motorcycles, specialist low carbon vehicles and the engine sector.
The further Automotive Electronics 2014 event supports the drive to new levels of vehicle functionality, safety and efficiency, including exciting developments in infotainment and telematics.
The organisers also announce that this year, augmenting the advanced materials agenda already established across the Advanced Engineering UK group of events, Performance Metals Engineering 2014 will add a new and significant dimension, usefully complementing the established and valued Composites Engineering show.
Ian Stone, Managing Director of show organisers UK Tech Events comments: “Such an assembly of multi-sector knowledge, skills and capabilities generates a quite unique dynamic for visitors, exhibitors and partners alike in that it allows the drawing of ideas and possibilities beyond already quite defined groups, affording an opportunity to look over the shoulders of other segments of the high value engineering community. Or, putting it another way, assess the partnership, marketing and sourcing possibilities available across the UK’s advanced engineering and manufacturing sectors.”
