With just a few weeks to go until the kick off date, Advanced Engineering UK, the country’s largest annual engineering exhibition, has announced its first speakers. Advanced Engineering UK will take place at the NEC Birmingham on 3rd and 4th of November 2021 and will bring together professionals from the aerospace, composites, automotive, performance metals, connected manufacturing and medical devices industries for the first time in almost two years.
 
There will be four forums held during the two-day show, featuring some of the leading voices from engineering and manufacturing. A huge topic at the aerospace forum this year is decarbonising aviation. During the show, there will be presentations on electrification, zero-carbon aviation and hydrogen propulsion from the Aerospace Technology Institute, Rolls-Royce, Ampaire, ZeroAvia and ID TechEx. Supply chain management is a concern for many companies this year, so Advanced Engineering UK will welcome talks from Airbus UK and ADS on supplier expectations and supply chain excellence.
 
On day two, the forum will have a whole morning dedicated to space and satellite engineering, with talks from the UK Space Agency, Skyrora, D-Orbit UK and the Space Applications Catapult.
 
At the automotive forum, electrification and sustainability will also feature as major themes, with talks from JCB, Ford, the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC), Jaguar Land Rover and many more.
 
On the composites stage, visitors can find out more about what digitalisation means for composite manufacturing, the 3D printing of composite parts and how composites are enabling the UK’s move towards its net-zero carbon emissions targets. Composites UK CEO, David Bailey will return along with the National Composites Centre’s Head of Digital Engineering, Marc Funnell. BAE Systems and Transport for London will also take to the stage.
 
During the connected manufacturing forum, Ian Gardner, Industry 4.0 and Oracle Specialist at IBM and Stephen Phipson, CEO of Make UK, will deliver keynote speeches. They’ll be supported by speakers from the Connected Places Catapult, Brunel University London and IoT North, to name a few.
 
“This year, visitors will have access to over 200 hours of content across our four open forums,” explained Alison Willis, Director at Easyfairs, the organiser of Advanced Engineering UK. “The format of the conferences enables visitors from one industry to attend and learn from speakers from an entirely different sector, truly enabling cross-industry collaboration and education. All of the forums take place on our show floor, making them easy to access with a visitor or exhibitor pass. On top of this, Advanced Engineering UK has implemented various safety measures to ensure that visitors can attend securely and enjoy the event fully.”
 
Speakers will be announced on Advanced Engineering UK’s social media channels over the coming weeks.
