Show zones

Six co-located show zones under one roof

  Advanced Engineering is the UK’s largest annual exhibition for OEMs and top tier suppliers, and tech innovators to meet and do business across all areas of the advanced engineering supply chain. This trade exhibition now in its 10th year is held in the NEC annually in November and brings over 600 engineering supply chain partners. As well as 15,000 engineers, procurement and management from OEMs and higher tier companies all looking to source, specify and invest in the latest products and take a look at the latest innovations in the industry.


NEW FOR 2018:
UK Contract Manufacturing zone is an area on the Advanced Engineering show floor dedicated for UK subcontractors to showcase their products and services. The UK subcontractor is facing growing competition from overseas presence. There is now a need more than ever for the UK market to have the best platform to showcase their businesses.
