A show for Britain's 21st Century industrial renaissanceFrom Silicon Glen to the thriving aerospace industries of the North West and the busy workshops of the Midlands, UK manufacturing is once again forging a formidable global reputation in high-value engineering and 21st Century technologies. But in an industrial landscape no longer dominated by large-scale engineering corporations, the huge mono-sector, national exhibitions of yesteryear now have very little relevance.
Today's UK industrial enterprise is now much more likely to be a small to medium sized concern, often highly specialised and highly skilled in its particular field of expertise. The Northern Manufacturing & Electronics Show is aimed very much at these engineers of the UK's 21st Century industrial revolution.
Northern Manufacturing & Electronics is a new show based on the hugely successful format of the Southern Manufacturing Show, which has grown over the last 18 years to become a key event in the UK manufacturing industry calendar. What has differentiated Southern from other industrial shows is that rather than trying to impose a rigid structure on the kinds of companies taking part, the event embraces the full diversity of UK industrial enterprise. Within a single venue, visitors will find a cross-section of the entire UK industrial eco-system. Visitors, who themselves are likely to be from a busy SME, can make excellent use of time spent away from the office by discovering a wide range of products and services in a single visit.
Time is one of the most important commodities for today's industrial professional. With limited time available for exhibition travel, event location has become hugely important. The opening of Event City, in the heart of Manchester, has placed the second largest exhibition venue outside of London within easy reach of the northern half of the UK. Excellent transport connections to the 28,000m_ venue mean that many visitors do not have to sacrifice an entire day to attend. Many visitors to the Southern Manufacturing show choose to attend on their way to or from the office - and even during their lunch breaks in some cases.
Easy access is important, but the most crucial factor is, of course, the number and quality of firms exhibiting. Visitors to Northern Manufacturing need have no concerns on this point. Such is the reputation that proceeds it, Northern Manufacturing 2013 has already pulled in more exhibitors than the first Southern event, including an impressive selection of major international manufacturers. The Eurotech Group, XYZ Machine Tools, Brother, Fronius UK, Renishaw, Nikon Metrology, Yamazaki Mazak and Trumpf are just some of the confirmed names that will be joining a host of local firms exhibiting.
Along with machinery and production equipment, components and electronics, sub-contractors and business services of all descriptions will be well-represented at the event. Some well-known names include TUV Rheinland, Electronics Yorkshire, DJJ Precision Engineering, Aerotech and Serious Engineering.
Entry to Northern Manufacturing & Electronics 2013 is completely free to business visitors, and Event City offers 3000 free on-site car parking spaces, with easy access by road, rail or air.
