Supported by Innovate UK – and Innovate UK’s network partner, Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) – Advanced Engineering is searching for growing businesses to exhibit their disruptive technologies and inventions on the show floor. Start-ups across all engineering sectors, whether that be aerospace, automotive, marine, medical, automation or any other industry, are encouraged to apply. We expect to see some of the most exciting technologies including novel materials, automotive and autonomous technologies.
 
The opportunity, which is free of charge for successful applicants, will give innovators a platform to showcase their inventions to thousands of key industry players from a range of notable companies. From senior directors and engineers to research and development specialists, chief technology officers and investors, a wealth of influential people spanning across the world’s most renowned manufacturing businesses will be visiting the zone.
 
Successful applicants will receive a branded plinth in the Enabling Innovation Zone to display their technologies, along with full marketing support in the show’s catalogue, on its website and across its PR campaigns. During the show, exhibitors have the chance to gain further recognition as visitors will be able to vote for their favourite innovation, with the winner announced ahead of the show’s closure.
 
“Following the success of the Enabling Innovation showcases, this dedicated zone will act as a springboard for new and exciting technologies,” explained Jeremy Whittingham, Head of Marketing at Advanced Engineering. “As we are establishing an entire area of the show for such innovative businesses, the impact the zone will have is bound to surpass that of previous years and encourage the growth of even more innovations”.
 
Previous showcases have been instrumental in accelerating business growth. Listed in Forbes 30 Under 30 Class of 2017, previous winner Aceleron has revealed that the showcases played a key role in the company’s business development.
 
“It played a crucial part in establishing our credibility and had a direct impact on at least five business relationships we have today”, said the advanced lithium battery developer.
