Established as valuable events in their own rights, Aero Engineering Show 2014, Composites Engineering Show 2014, Automotive Engineering Show 2014 and Auto Electronics 2014 provide focused individual environments for latest technologies and solutions, product and process innovation, plus industry supply chain capability supporting current and future market requirements.
UK Tech Events states this year’s Advanced Engineering UK group of events, to be held at NEC Birmingham on 11th and 12th November is already shaping up as the biggest and best yet: quite an achievement for an event that has grown over six years of showcasing the UK’s burgeoning engineering, manufacturing, technology, innovation and supply chain capability.
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”
Reflecting UK industry’s increasing demand across diverse sectors for harnessing the benefits of composites materials, 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.
An additional focus programme will showcase the enabling potential of graphene (the new and much talked about material for multiple applications) as well as the game changing possibilities for printable electronics. As in previous years, the objective will be for visitors to cover a wide span of UK advanced engineering, manufacturing and supply chain, and for exhibitors to set out their stalls before a significant proportion of decision makers in UK industry.
Ground-breaking innovation is further highlighted in the increased range of feature ‘technology in action’ special features, allowing visitors to get up close to a whole range of exciting technology and innovation-based exhibits – from supercars, to aerostructures, from low carbon engineering to future electronics.
With a predicted 650+specialist exhibitors covering 20,000m2 of showcase floor space, further supported by six show floor-based open conference auditoriums offering more than 200 expert technical and strategic speaker presentations during the two days of the event, the organisers are confident of seeing even more visitors than the 12,000 plus who attended the 2013 event.
