Advanced Engineering UK will return to the NEC, Birmingham showcasing more innovation from the manufacturing and engineering industry.

Organisers say this year’s show being held on November 1-2, is already shaping up to be an event that should not be missed, with over 90% of exhibition space already sold. In fact, the show is proving so popular that the organisers have expanded the floor plan for 2023 as a result of increased interest.

Advanced Engineering celebrates innovation and facilitates the forming of relationships within various vertical industrial sectors that exist in the UK. Whether that’s aerospace, automotive, advanced metals, connected manufacturing or space, it’s guaranteed that attendees will meet new, useful contacts. Last year, over 8,800 people attended Advanced Engineering, including representatives from Aston Martin, BAE Systems, Boeing, McLaren, Microsoft and many more.

Advanced Engineering is also a great opportunity to keep up-to-date on the latest industry trends. In 2022, visitors had access to over 50 hours of free CPD-accredited learning, courtesy of the four forums present on the show floor. This included talks from leading industry figures, including representatives from Siemens, Ford, Jaguar Land Rover, Make UK, Rolls-Royce and Airbus.

“This year, we’ve made a big change to our floor plan by removing the different show zones that have been present in previous years and expanding it over a wider area,” explained Alison Willis, director of Easyfairs, the organiser of Advanced Engineering. “We felt like this was important since cross-industry working is one of the things that attendees value the most.

“We’ll also be encouraging our exhibitors to reduce the amount of paper they bring to the show, by giving everyone access to our smart badge system, where exhibitors can add brochures, data sheets and any other digital material that they would have previously had in print form on their stands.

“We also won’t be offering a printed show guide, instead all the information attendees need will be available on our dedicated app.”

Advanced Engineering is supported by a range of industry partners, including the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), Composites UK, Make UK, UKRI, UK Space Agency, the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, GAMBICA, BARA and the Department for International Trade.

The show will be co-located with Lab Innovations, giving visitors and exhibitors more opportunities for cross-industry collaboration. The Enabling Innovation Zone will also return, supporting smaller enterprises that want to commercialise their innovations.
