Just some of the visitor feedback on the 2017 event:

You would think that after working for over fifty years as a professional engineer I would be tired of going to exhibitions and shows and you could be right but in recent times I have found the Advanced Engineering Show the one I now make a point of going to. Whilst being a very small business I still find I can spend a day finding new processes etc that maintain my passion for providing answers to clients problems. I am at an age that appreciates finding somewhat younger people that have the ability to demonstrate that extra sparkle that makes me want to keep working rather than retire Working well together young and old can move mountains This Show makes that happen.

Melville Wilby, Cardinal Solutions Limited

"Excellent show for networking, very important for my company, we visit every year. Enjoyable and worthwhile visit."

Robert Slade, Automotive Consultant, Mackenzie Jones Engineering

“Show of this nature gives a great opportunity to catch up with latest technologies in the field of engineering from all aspects. It makes you realise where you as a business stands and how much catching up required to be competitive. It also offers chance to meet new and network with existing contacts, great way to spend a day.”

Nanoo Patel, Business Development Manager, Georg UK Ltd

“The main purpose of visiting the show was to offer some inspiration to our students and expose them to the world of engineering. We took a complete cross section from our courses and they all have come back after having a positive experience. Thanks for supporting in the development of the next generation of young engineers.”
