Advanced Engineering, the UK’s annual gathering of OEMs and engineering supply chain professionals, is inviting exhibitors, visitors and associations to the 2018 conference programme.
The presentations will take place at the free-to-attend Open Forum programme. They will highlight the latest developments in key industries – aerospace, automotive, composites, connected and digital manufacturing, advanced materials and, new for the show this year, civil nuclear new-build engineering.
Topics will cover the full range of advanced engineering capabilities, including:
Anyone interested in speaking on any of the above themes please email email@example.com, providing your name, company, contact details, as well as a title and a short description of your presentation. The closing date for receipt of applications is 25 May.
“The Open Forum programme is a unique opportunity to present your research and case studies to a very select audience," explains Alison Willis, Industrial Divisional Director at Easyfairs, the show organiser. "Please send us your ideas and our Open Conference organisers will be delighted to consider your application. The programme keeps our show at the cutting edge of advanced engineering innovations.”
The Advanced Engineering Show is celebrating its 10th birthday this year and will be bigger and better than ever, according to Easyfairs. It 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, suppliers and services. As last year, the exhibition will be held in Halls 2, 3 and 3A at the NEC, Birmingham, though now there are two entrances to the show, making navigation of the exhibition space easier.
Advanced Engineering 2018 takes place on 31 October-1 November.

The Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation (IACMI) has announced the Phase I completion of a project led by DuPont, partnering with Fibrtec and Purdue University, focused on the creation of a new carbon fibre composite manufacturing process that exhibits improved fabric formability characteristics compared to traditional woven materials.
CGTech will showcase its expanded range of software applications for the aerospace industry at the Farnborough International Airshow on 16-20 July 2018.
Powertrains, be they conventional, hybrid or fully electric, will need to be light in weight if carmakers are to meet the stringent regulations on carbon dioxide emissions (CO2) to come into force in 2025 – and composites will be key to making this happen. This was the message highlighted at the Lightweight Composite Solutions Conference organised by Vyncolit and Sumitomo Bakelite Co Ltd and held in Gent, Belgium.
