As a hub of innovation, the Advanced Engineering show can always be relied on to offer a little bit of a lot of different manufacturing-based technologies.
With a heady variety of collaboration and development for all sectors and areas of the engineering supply chain, the event attracted around 9,000 attendees and over 400 exhibitors in 2022.
Previewed in this issue (see page 10), Advanced Engineering is more than just the sum of its parts and arguably offers some of the best opportunities to discover more about someone - or something - you never knew existed.
Now in its 14th year, this year’s show comes with a fresh and future-focused rebrand, removing the previous show zones from its exhibition floor and introducing a main stage for the event’s well-attended forums. This is in order to meet the future demands of the engineering and manufacturing sectors in terms of encouraging even more cross-industry collaboration.
A throng of exhibitors and visitors alike will descend upon this event. For stakeholders in our industry, the show’s aerospace forum will enable visitors to meet experts from H2FLY, Rolls-Royce, YEET Aerospace, MGI Engineering, ADS, Midlands Aerospace Alliance, Satellite Applications Catapult, Gravitilab and Spirit AeroSystems, who will cover topics ranging from digitally enabled supply chains to propulsion technologies.
Hopefully, Advanced Engineering will deliver fresh opportunities to exhibitors and visitors alike, so they can experience both new customers and new products – the kinds that they wouldn’t normally expect to see at these events.
My best wishes go out to show organisers, Easyfairs. I’m absolutely sure the aerospace industry will make the most of its showtime. Meanwhile, put the 1-2 November in your diary and on behalf of Aerospace Manufacturing magazine, I look forward to seeing you at the NEC Birmingham.
