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.
Alison Willis, Industrial Divisional Director at Easyfairs, organisers of the show, said: “The Open Forum programme is a unique opportunity to see research and case studies from a very select audience. The programme keeps our show at the cutting edge of advanced engineering innovations. We’re very excited about this year’s exhibition when we will bring together the latest innovations in engineering which will help the UK’s manufacturers to continue competing and growing in the global market-place. Come and join us.”
Advanced Engineering is celebrating 10 years of enabling the UK supply chain to meet face-to-face with engineering management, spanning: process, control and plant industries; R & D; design; test; production & procurement from OEMs, integrators and top tier industry players. This year’s show is building on the success of last year’s event where attendance increased by 15%.
The exhibition brings together OEMs and SMEs, visitors and exhibitors to meet and do business, not only within their own industries, but in those less familiar areas they would not otherwise discover at a single exhibition.
Attendees come from a range of engineering specialisms, including; measurements & monitoring, process control, drives and controls, sensors and systems, automation, fluid handling, food processing, machining and many more. And all industrial sectors will be represented, including: motorsport; defence; oil, gas and energy; marine; and rail.
Whether you are a visitor or an exhibitor, Advanced Engineering will not only provide a business forum and supply chain showcase for your own sector, but will also introduce new opportunities in industries using related technologies and services.
Co-locating as part of Advanced Engineering 2018 are:
- Aero Engineering
