Organised by Easyfairs, Advanced Engineering 2017 is the UK’s largest meeting place for engineers. The show takes place on 1&2 November, at the NEC, Birmingham and is already attracted some of the industry’s biggest names including Airbus; Hexcel; and Dassault Systèmes, who will be looking to meet and do business across the supply chain.
Advanced Engineering 2017 is the place where the UK supply chain meets 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 coming from a range of engineering specialisms.
Whether you are a visitor or an exhibitor, Advanced Engineering 2017 will not only provide you with a business forum and supply chain showcase for your own sector, but will also introduce you to new opportunities in industries using related technologies and services.
The two-day open conference will have a raft of speakers and topics, including talks from Composites UK, Toyota Tsusho, 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 aluminium engineering.
Alison Willis, industrial divisional director at Easyfairs, organisers of the Show, said: “We’re very excited about this year’s exhibition as will bring together the latest advances in engineering, and just importantly the people who buy and provide engineering services.”
“The conference will provide insights into topics affecting the array of industries our show covers. 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. Attending these talks are a must!”
Advanced Engineering 2017 is newly ‘Continuing Professional Development (CPD)’ – accredited for this year, by the CPD Certification Service. Recognised by employers, and which complements the policies of professional institutes and academic bodies, it also acknowledges the effective professional development visitors of the conference can gain. Attending the conference will help visitors broaden their knowledge around the various advanced engineering sectors and the interesting and technical topics that will be discussed.
Visitors will see a variety of cutting edge technology and materials from exhibitors as well as show floor features that will be in various locations around the show, providing something for everyone with a number of industries covered.
It is the only place in the world where you will find, in the one place, a hydrogen powered car, the latest in aircraft landing gear, a battery made 100% from recycled materials, a ground based test rig and a Libralato hybrid engine (a completely new kind of rotary engine), to name but a few.
One of the hubs which is being expanded this year is Enabling Innovation hosted by Magna International, a leading global automotive supplier. This is a dedicated area for up to 50 carefully selected SMEs and micro businesses which are at the early stages of their development, perhaps prototyping.
Co-locating as part of the show are five zones:
- Aero Engineering
- Composites Engineering
- Automotive Engineering
- Performance Metals Engineering
- Connected Manufacturing – NEW FOR 2017
Now in its ninth year, the show has record breaking visitor numbers, bringing together over 600 firms – all looking to source, specify and invest in the most up-to-date products and explore the latest industry innovations.
