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 performance materials industry, including: processes for casting, extrusion, forging, joining and sheet & tube forming; powder metallurgy …; friction drilling equipment; manufacturing techniques; metals heat treatment; testing and characterization of metals; electrochemical & power beam processes; ... and many more.
The demand for lightweight and high-performance metals is continually growing across many industries. The UK metals sector boasts more than 11,000 companies, employing 230,000 people directly and is responsible for a further 750,000 jobs outside of these positions.
Alison Willis, industrial divisional director at Easyfairs, said: “The demand for performance metals is growing at a fantastic rate, and the Performance Metals 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 performance metals engineering. Come along and see for yourself the fantastic industry we have.”
An exhibitor from last year’s show, Roberto Fernandez, Sales Operations Manager, OLMAR SA, added: “The quality of visitors was once again second to none, with several enquiries to follow up on by the end of the first morning. It’s been another great show.”
Organised by Easyfairs, the Performance Metals 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 performance metals engineering 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 Performance Metals 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, Composites Engineering, Automotive Engineering - and new for 2017, Connected Manufacturing which focuses on Industry 4.0.For more information on the Advanced Engineering 2017, or to register to secure your free ticket for the show, visit: www.advancedengineeringuk.com
