Advanced Engineering 2017: Supporting UK Manufacturing Growth

Advanced Engineering 2017 takes place on 1-2 November at the NEC, Birmingham. Some of the industry’s biggest names, including Airbus, Hexcel and Dassault Systèmes, will be looking to meet and do business across the supply chain with visitors from a range of engineering specialisms including automation, fluid handling, process control, machining and many more.

“This year, we are stepping things up with the new Connected Manufacturing zone and expanding Enabling Innovation, which will be showcasing the next generation of exciting new technologies,” reports Alison Willis, Industrial Divisional Director at Easyfairs, the show’s organiser. “We want our exhibitors and visitors to find new suppliers and customers, and meet with existing contacts, to support the UK’s continuing manufacturing growth.”

Whether a visitor or an exhibitor, Advanced Engineering 2017 aims to not only provide a business forum and supply chain showcase for their own sector, but will also introduce new opportunities within industries using related technologies and services.

The two-day open conference, which is newly Continuing Professional Development (CPD)- accredited by the CPD Certification Service, will have a raft of speakers and topics, including talks from Boeing, Composites UK, GKN, SIEMENS, Composites Leadership Forum, Nissan and more. Topics will include how specific engineering problems have been overcome, as well as more strategic issues such as the fourth industrial revolution, Brexit, additive manufacturing and advances in lightweight materials.

“The conference will provide insights into topics affecting the array of industries our show covers,” says Willis. “We have something for everyone and expert industry keynotes will allow for interesting discussions and Q&As, especially around the hot-topic of industry 4.0. These talks are a must see!”

Visitors will be able to see a variety of technology and materials from exhibitors as well as show floor features, providing something for everyone with a number of industries covered.  

Co-locating as part of the show are five zones:

  • Aero Engineering;
  • Composites Engineering;
  • Automotive Engineering;
  • Performance Metals Engineering;
  • Connected Manufacturing.

Now in its ninth year, the show brings together over 600 exhibiting firms, all looking to source, specify and invest in the most up-to-date products and explore the latest industry innovations.
