Advanced Engineering has announced the launch of the Enabling Innovation hub, in partnership with Magna International. The hub provides a free opportunity for 20 SMEs and innovators to showcase their latest concepts, products and processes to potential partners, investors and buyers from the industry.

Enabling Innovation will take place on the 2 & 3 November 2016 at the NEC, Birmingham as part of Advanced Engineering 2016. It will provide early stage companies and innovators with a valuable platform to showcase their latest innovations.

The companies which secure a space in the hub will be part of a show which features over 700 leading companies from the engineering world and attracts 13,000 engineering professionals. This includes buyers and decision-makers from OEMs and top tier manufacturers.

As part of its support, global automotive supplier Magna International will also hold a competition during the event where it will award a £5,000 prize to the most innovative and disruptive technology featured within the hub.

Representatives from the Magna Research and Development team will also host one on one meetings with innovators to discuss ways to commercialise their ideas.

Event director Katie Crocombe commented: "We are thrilled to be adding yet another new element to Advanced Engineering 2016. We're constantly looking for ways to support growth of innovation within the industry and the Enabling Innovation hub provides a fantastic opportunity for SMEs to accelerate the commercialisation of their latest technologies."

"Advanced Engineering is fast becoming the hub for the industry and I am truly excited about what this year's show has to offer to attendees and exhibitors!"

SMEs can apply for exhibition space with application submitted on the Advanced Engineering website.

Meetings can be booked with representatives from the Magna Research & Development team, who will be available onsite for 1-on-1 meetings during the event.
