Almost sold out - MACH 2016 Brings 130 New Exhibitors
With just a few months left, the eagerly anticipated MACH 2016 event is just around the corner. As the UK’s premier manufacturing technologies event, MACH 2016 is almost sold out and it has already passed 2014’s square metres sold mark.
Hall 5 at the NEC is now completely sold out and Hall 4 has only limited space available. With over 600 exhibitors expected at the show, of which 130 will be completely new to MACH, the event is shaping up to be a pivotal point in UK manufacturing calendar for 2016.
The packed halls will be supported by a seminar programme in two dedicated theatres and will feature compelling talks by some of the industry’s best known OEM’s and institutions. These globally renowned OEMs that will be sharing their knowledge at MACH include Airbus, Messier-Dowty, McLaren, Cranfield University and HS2. On the Wednesday (13 April) of the exhibition the seminar programme will take an in-depth look at Industry 4.0 and on the Thursday (14 April) it will be turning its attention to Additive Manufacturing with a particular focus on the 3D printing revolution.
James Selka, CEO of the Manufacturing Technologies Association, said of the event 'MACH 2016 has all the hallmarks of being a fantastic showcase for the UK’s advanced manufacturing technologies sectors. With working demonstrations of machinery, a compelling seminar programme and some of the finest names in manufacturing all under one roof, visitors to this edition of the exhibition will need more than one day to experience everything show has to offer.'
As well as showcasing new technologies and the latest products, MACH 2016 will also be welcoming the next generation of talent to the exhibition. A dedicated 'Learning and Development Zone' will act as a base for student visitors as well as housing some key exhibits and a showcase of MTA Members' apprentices and graduates at work. The MTA is delighted to announce that Sandvik Coromant will once again be sponsoring the Zone, demonstrating their support for bringing young people into the industry. Featured organisations within the Learning and Development Zone include the world class AMRC, the Bloodhound SuperSonic Car and the Ministry of Defence. There will also be a chance to see the next generation of engineers in action with our Apprentices at Work demonstrations.
