9th Annual Advanced Engineering Show

Advanced Engineering 2017 announced that its brand new Connected Manufacturing zone is full. The Connected Manufacturing zone has already attracted leading names from the industry including Siemens, Dassault Systèmes and Manufacturing Technologies Association, who will be looking to meet and do business with other industry individuals.

Also new for this year are an expanded zone for start-ups sponsored by Magna International and a brand new co-locating show, Lab Innovations, for laboratory manufacturers and suppliers.

Advanced Engineering 2017 are pleased to also announce a competition to all exhibitors with prizes for those who bring the most visitors to the 2017 show through registering using their trackable link. The two exhibitors who bring the most visitors will win a free 6 square meter stand in the 2018 show and a free full-page advert in the 2018 show guide.

Visitors will see cutting edge technology and service providers, everything that is needed in today’s connected manufacturing industry, including: 3D printing; analytics; automation & IT; autonomous vehicles; laser systems; cloud computing; predictive maintenance; energy efficiency; robotics; human-machine interfaces and many more.

Industrial production is a key driver for innovation, productivity, growth and job creation; with many of the industries catching on to the importance of connected manufacturing, the new show zone will help key players explore the business and technology opportunities that exist between innovators, customers and suppliers.

Alison Willis, industrial divisional director at Easyfairs, said: “This year, we have introduced the Connected Manufacturing zone and it is the place to be to see the latest technological developments surrounding industry 4.0. These are revolutionizing a raft of markets, from planes, trains and automobiles, through to oil & gas; benefitting millions of people worldwide who consume these products – which means practically everyone on the planet! “And this year with the introduction of the new zone, we will welcome thousands of visitors and exhibitors whose businesses are in connected manufacturing. Come along and see for yourself the fantastic industry we have.”

John Kirven, Proposition Consultant at Canon, added: “Canon is proud to work with Easyfairs and exhibit at the Connected Manufacturing Exhibition on November. We see a great opportunity to connect with like-minded manufacturers who believe that innovation can help achieve the benefits, and resolve the challenges that 4iR brings. The high quality of organisations visiting and exhibiting will give Canon the best opportunity to meet with, and guide the delivery of 4iR."

Stephen Ratcliffe, Head of Marketing UK & Eire, Rockwell Automation UK, also added: “It is becoming increasingly clear that today we are at an inflection point in how industrial automation and information technology affects manufacturing; the revolution widely known as Industry 4.0.  Increasing productivity is fundamentally based upon getting the most from the people, data and machines of a manufacturing enterprise.  Now, and ever more so in the future, this requires companies to be better connected.”

Organized by Easyfairs, the Connected Manufacturing Show, which is one of five zones of Advanced Engineering 2017, takes place on November 1-2 at the NEC Birmingham. It is the UK's largest annual gathering of advanced engineering professionals. It 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.

Now in its 9th year, the Advanced Engineering Show has record breaking visitor numbers, bringing together over 700 firms, as well as thousands of 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 2017 includes four other co-located zones under one roof: Aero Engineering, Composites Engineering, Automotive Engineering and Performance Metals Engineering.
