Unique opportunity for UK’s small engineering firms to shine

Published on: 12th July 2018

Advanced Engineering 2018, the UK’s largest annual gathering of OEMs and engineering supply chain professionals, is throwing down the welcome mat for UK’s small engineering firms and subcontractors.
New for this year, the show is excited to be supporting these UK contractors by introducing a dedicated area on its show floor – the UK Contract Manufacturing zone. The UK subcontractor is facing growing competition from overseas and there is now a need more than ever, for the UK market to have the best platform to showcase these businesses.
In order to support British industry, Advanced Engineering 2018 has initiated this dedicated and focused area.
Alison Willis, Industrial Divisional Director at Easyfairs, organiser of the show, said: “Britain’s small engineering companies are the backbone of the country’s manufacturing capability, a capability which is renowned around the world for its technical expertise and fantastic customer service.
“As Advanced Engineering celebrates our 10th year, we are looking forward to seeing thousands of engineers from small and large companies who will see at first-hand the latest developments in the industry.”
Advanced Engineering 2018, which takes place on the 31 of October and 1 of November at the NEC Birmingham, connects the entire supply chain of the UK’s advanced engineering industry with R&D, design, test, production and procurement from large and small companies, through to top tier industry players in a two-day free to attend exhibition and high-level conference.
The show brings together over 700 firms, as well as more than 15,000 engineers, procurement managers and senior decision makers from large and small companies – all looking to source, specify and invest in the most up-to-date products and explore the latest industry innovations.
Advanced Engineering 2018 includes six co-located zones under one roof: Aero Engineering, Composites Engineering, Automotive Engineering, Performance Metals Engineering, Connected Manufacturing and –  new for 2018 – Nuclear Engineering and UK Contract Manufacturing.
