Subcon Advanced Manufacturing Show
Thanks to an extremely positive response from visitors and exhibitors, organisers have confirmed the event will be staged again at the exhibition centre from June 2nd-4th 2015 and will be hosted henceforth by the NEC on a biennial basis.
This year's inaugural exhibition attracted some of the world's leading manufacturing technology companies including Yamazaki Mazak, TRUMPF, Matsuura, Renishaw, Hexagon Metrology, XYZ Machine Tools, Delcam and Sumitomi Electric Hardmetal to name but a few.
Business Development and Portfolio Director at Centaur Exhibitions Grant Burgham said: "The Advanced Manufacturing Show was developed in response to the requirements of modern engineering and manufacturing professionals. The exhibitor profile at this year's Advanced Manufacturing Show has been excellent, and many of the companies taking part used the Show as the ideal forum to launch new machines and technologies.
“The combination of this leading-edge technology with the pick of the world's contract manufacturers on show at Subcon and an excellent conference programme added up to a compelling proposition for visitors from across UK manufacturing."
Subcon is the UK’s only national cross-sector contract and subcontract manufacturing exhibition and ran concurrent with the Advanced Manufacturing Show this year. It will return to the NEC on its annual cycle in 2014.
Mr Burgham concluded: "We believe that there is a great future for the Advanced Manufacturing Show and the NEC's location in the heart of the manufacturing industry is the ideal venue for us to grow the scope of the exhibition.
"Subcon continues to go from strength to strength and in 2014 Subcon will attract subcontracting, advanced manufacturing and technology exhibitors with an audience who will reflect that. We look forward to welcoming you in 2014."
