The Composites Engineering zone has already attracted leading names from the industry including Mercedes Amg F1 and 3M Advanced Materials UK, who will be looking to meet and do business with other industry individuals.
The Show has established itself as one of the world’s most important composite raw material, design, processing and applications events. New for this year are: a dedicated zone for industry 4.0, Connected Manufacturing; an expanded zone for start-ups sponsored by Magna International; and a brand new co- locating show, Lab Innovations, for laboratory manufacturers and suppliers.
Advanced Engineering 2017 are pleased to also announce a competition to all exhibitors with prizes for those who bring the most visitors to the 2017 show through registering using their trackable link. The two exhibitors who bring the most visitors will win a free 6sqm stand in the 2018 show and a free full- page advert in the 2018 show guide.
Visitors will see cutting edge technology and materials, everything that is needed in today’s composites industry, including: raw materials & chemicals; semi-finished & intermediate products; composites design, analysis & simulation; trade processors & fabricators; processing technology equipment; tooling & ancillaries; composites machining & joining; composite assembly & automation technology; composites finishing technologies; composites maintenance & recycling; composites training; … and many more.
The rise of composite materials continues across an ever-increasing number of applications. The advances provided by composite materials within automotive, aerospace, manufacturing, construction and oil and gas, to name just a few, are revolutionising businesses and benefiting millions of people. With the industry showing no signs of slowing down,
Alison Willis, industrial divisional director at Easyfairs, said: “The composites industry is growing at a fantastic rate, and the Composites Engineering zone is the place to be to see the latest technological developments. These are revolutionising a raft of markets, from planes, trains and automobiles, through to oil & gas; benefitting millions of people worldwide who consume these products – which means practically everyone on the planet!
“And the industry shows no sign of slowing down. This year, as in previous years, we will welcome thousands of visitors and exhibitors whose businesses are in composites. Come along and see for yourself the fantastic industry we have.”
Mark Crouchen, managing director of Rockwood Composites, added: “This will be our 7th year exhibiting at the Composites Engineering Show. We wouldn’t miss it. It is the place to be to experience at first hand the latest the industry has to offer. So, sign up for a ticket, put the dates in your diary and come and see for yourself the wide range of composites engineering innovations the UK has to offer. That includes Rockwood Composites, and we’re on stand M140!”
Organised by Easyfairs, the Composites Engineering Show, which is one of five zones of Advanced Engineering 2017, takes place on the 1-2 November at the NEC Birmingham. It is the UK’s largest annual gathering of composites professionals. It connects the entire supply chain of the UK’s advanced engineering industry with R&D, design, test, production and procurement from large and small companies, through to top tier industry players in a two-day free to attend exhibition and high-level conference.
Now in its 9th year, the Composites Engineering Show has record breaking visitor numbers, bringing together over 700 firms, as well as thousands of engineers, procurement managers and senior decision makers from large and small companies – all looking to source, specify and invest in the most up-to-date products and explore the latest industry innovations.
Advanced Engineering 2017 includes four other co-located zones under one roof: Aero Engineering, Automotive Engineering, Performance Metals Engineering – and new for 2017, Connected Manufacturing which focuses on Industry 4.0.
