Advanced Engineering 2018, the UK’s largest annual gathering of OEMs and engineering supply chain professionals, has today (13 June 2018) opened registration for its 10th anniversary show, with the first 50 people signing up being offered a free Ultra High Capacity Power Bank for mobile phones and laptops to be picked up at the Show.

Visitors will see cutting-edge innovations across the aerospace, automotive, composites, performance metals, connected manufacturing and nuclear industries.

With 650+ exhibitors and some of the industry’s biggest names expected, visitors will have a unique opportunity to discover the latest developments in the advanced engineering landscape.

Coupled with 200+ presentations and case studies the show is filled with experts in technical and business improvement, highlighting best practice and the secrets behind what is driving the industry forward.

It also presents the chance to meet and do business across the supply chain from a range of engineering specialisms including: automation, design & test engineering, process control, machining and many more.

Alison Willis, industrial divisional director at Easyfairs, said:

“Celebrating our 10th birthday this year is a very special occasion for the Advanced Engineering show, and it will be bigger and better than ever. Our technical conference programme is attracting a lot of interest and there will be hundreds of engineering exhibitors to speak to about the latest innovations in the industry. So register for your free place today and put the date in your diary.”
