MACH 2016 Starts With a Bang!

Added to MTDCNC by MTDCNC on 12 April 2016

MACH 2016 started half an hour earlier than previous events (at 9am), but the official opening at 10am was a real coup for the MTA with Sir Chris Hoy taking his familiar position on the podium. Our greatest Olympian cut the ceremonial ribbon with 3D printed scissors that instantly gave the cycling legend an insight as to what marvels he was about to witness in the halls of the NEC.

The 9am start was well received by visitors that were delighted to be taking quality enquiries at 5 past 9. The MTD team started the week on the CMZ stand where we filmed our first of four daily Vodcasts. The team spoke with the Managing Director of CMZ's global operations, Mr Aitor Zumarraga. We also interviewed members of the UK team that were delighted with the footfall on the first morning of MACH.  The footage has already been edited and is now online for our followers that can't make it to the show. For those of you that will be venturing to the NEC today, you'll be able to see the CMZ Vodcast on our big screen outside the main entrance.

The end of the first day at MACH was a time to unwind at the MTA's after show launch event for MACH 2018. The big news from the MTA was that after forty years, the 2018 show will be relocated to new halls at the NEC, moving away from the historic home in Halls 4 and 5. The new floorplan for 2018 will have approximately 10% more floor space and five entrances. This will generate a greater flow of traffic through the halls and effectively put all exhibitors in one large hall, a great opportunity for MACH to grow in the future.

Today, we'll be doing our Vodcast on the DMG stand where we'll have exclusive access to F1 racing legend and now Porsche touring car racer Mark Weber. The Aussie will be doing a Q&A session on the DMG stand and as usual, MTD will be getting the footage on-line and available to our followers by the end of play today.  Keep your eyes on our new website for all the updates.....and if you want up to the minute updates on the show, follow us on Twitter & Facebook.
