Here, the UK’s talented and vast engineering industry can meet again for the first time in almost two years to do business, make new connections and discover innovation.

Over the last 12 years, Advanced Engineering has earned the support of some of the world’s key industry associations, such as The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), Composites UK, JEC, ADS, The Society of Motor Manufacturers (SMMT), The Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering (SAMPE), GTMA, The Aluminium Federation (ALFED), The Surface Engineering Association (SEA), The Confederation of British Metalforming (CBM), Make UK, the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMECHE), GAMBICA, The UK Space Agency, The Department of International Trade, KTN and Innovate UK. The show also has support from the leading industry media across all sectors following twelve long-established successful years.

Advanced Engineering offers a great opportunity for the entire UK manufacturing supply chain to source innovation and technology spanning across multiple sectors, including but not limited to aerospace, automotive, rail, marine, space & satellite, medical, renewables and more. Already, the show’s exhibitor space is 90 per cent sold out – a sign that our industry is eager to come together again. In 2019, over 10,000 professionals from the manufacturing sector attended Advanced Engineering.

“This year’s Advanced Engineering will be a great opportunity to catch up with contacts, both existing and new,” said Daniel Martin, Manager of BIW & Enclosures at Aston Martin Lagonda. “I’m particularly looking forward to the chance where myself and colleagues can enjoy the first big event all year to source technologies and products that will be vital for the bounce-back and future resilience of the British automotive sector.”

Advanced Engineering is the go-to show for anyone wanting to meet the world’s leading engineering and manufacturing companies, plus the UK’s most innovative start-ups, thanks to the return of the show’s Enabling Innovation zone, supported by Innovate UK. Here, ten chosen start-ups will have the opportunity to showcase their ground-breaking product or technology, before presenting it to a panel of esteemed judges to be crowned the Advanced Engineering innovator of 2021.

This year, there will be a new Space and Satellite zone, supported by UK Space Agency, ADS, GTMA, Skyrora, Surrey Satellite Technologies Ltd and Airbus Space & Defence, with a particularly special product feature due to be announced in the coming weeks.

As always, Advanced Engineering will host four open forums with speakers from Make UK, Volkswagen, Ford, IBM, BAE Systems, TFL, Toray Advanced Composites, the UK Space Agency, Vortex Engineering Group and Swiss CMT already confirmed. Forum topics include urban air mobility, 3D printing of composites, electrification in the automotive industry, AI and cyber security, cementing the show’s position as the home of everything that anyone working across the engineering and manufacturing supply chains could need.

“This year, Advanced Engineering returns to the NEC for its 12th edition to continue supporting the manufacturing and engineering supply chain,” commented Alison Willis, Director at Easyfairs, the organiser of Advanced Engineering. “At the show, visitors can access the latest innovation and technology from across various sectors all under one roof.

“Advanced Engineering is looking forward to welcoming back its OEM visitors including Airbus, Jaguar Land Rover, Dyson, Boeing, Tata, Rolls Royce. Again, this year’s VIP hosts will be the Silverstone Technology Cluster. As ever we are proud to be supported by our loyal industry and media associations, without which the show wouldn’t be possible. AE Connect will also be available to allow exhibitors to arrange meetings ahead of the two-day event. On top of this, there will be various networking sessions taking place allowing visitors to make new connections, which so many of us are looking forward to after the last 18 months,” concluded Willis.

“As we’re the voice of manufacturing, Advanced Engineering is a perfect fit for us,” explained Roxanne Bennett from Make UK. “One of the questions we get the most is how we can support manufacturers and this show gives us the opportunity to answer that for companies across different sectors.”

Now more than ever, it’s important for the engineering and manufacturing industry to look to the future, whether in R&D, Design, Test & Measurement, Advanced Materials, Manufacturing, Production or Assembly. Advanced Engineering provides the perfect place to do just this, enabling the entire manufacturing and engineering supply chain to forge new relationships and build on existing ones, while discovering all the very latest innovative technology.
