“What a fantastic show this year. With the launch of our new Curabox Benoxazine resin, the number of visitors to our stand has been brilliant. By having the opportunity to put faces to names and create new leads, the Advanced Engineering show has allowed us to not only make new connections but improve on existing ones. The show has really set us up for next year!”

Dominic Hopwood, Bitrez

“It’s been a really good show; the quality of visitors has been excellent. For the first time ever, I have actually sold a machine straight off the stand for the value of £54k and by the end of today we would have sold another one – which is incredible.”

Sean O’Neill, Roaches International

"This has been the best year yet for us exhibiting at the Advanced Engineering Show. We have recently invested in a new press which has increase our capacity by 50% so we can’t wait to get some new clients. We have lots of new leads which will come in handy for new business in the new year. We will certainly be back next year!"

Mark Crouchen, Rockwood Composites

"We are delighted at the huge numbers of visitors who came to see us. We had a very productive time catching up with familiar faces and meeting new businesses in the aerospace and defence sectors and it was great to showcase our services, especially NATEP and Aerospace Cornwall. We have come away from the show with some fantastic leads. We have been exhibiting at Advanced Engineering for several years now and we will continue to do so for many more.”

Colin Turner, the West of England Aerospace Forum (WEAF)

"As an engineering trade association we are often asked to nominate a show - Advanced Engineering is the one we choose, it grows each year and remains No 1 for us."

Julia Moore, CEO, GTMA

Show data

It is increasingly common for exhibitors to be approached by third party companies purporting to, or giving the impression that, they have access to the show’s attendee list. Please be aware that we do not pass on our data to ANY third party, so please note that these claims may be fraudulent. If you have any concerns at all, please contact a member of the team.


It also has been brought to our attention that fraudulent companies have been contacting our exhibitors under the guise of working with Easyfairs and offering ‘free advertising opportunities’ and claiming to be our preferred accommodation supplier.

You can find further details about these companies here - http://www.aeo.org.uk/expoguide. If you have already fallen victim to this fraud there is also lots of advice here for how to deal with it.

Please note that Advanced Engineering Official Show Guide is produced by Publishing Events on behalf of Easyfairs, and any contact made by other companies claiming to produce the Show Guide should be ignored.
