MTA launches new Engineering Supply Chain Show

MTA launches new Engineering Supply Chain ShowThe Manufacturing Technologies Association (MTA) has announced a new exhibition to run alongside the long-established MACH 2022 at the NEC, Birmingham next April.

The Engineering Supply Chain Show will be the place where engineering and manufacturing buyers can go to find world-class suppliers, exclusively in the UK engineering and manufacturing supply chain.

Organised by the MTA, this ‘show-within-a-show’ is part of the exhibition but will sit as a separate three-day event. Running from 5-7 April 2022, it will have its own location and entrance in Hall 7 — directly alongside MACH.

Sponsored by Lloyds Bank and the Engineering Industries Association (EIA), this new exhibition has grown out of increased demand for the successful UK Supply Chain Zone at MACH.

James Selka DL, MTA CEO, said: “This is a very exciting time for the UK’s engineering and manufacturing supply chain. More and more UK OEMs and Tier One companies are looking to reshore their supply chains or develop new ones. This new exhibition, sited alongside the established MACH exhibition, will provide a focused showcase for their products and services.”

One common badge will provide unhindered access to both MACH and the Engineering Supply Chain Show while in-hall links will ensure a seamless flow of visitors between the events.

Traditionally attracting over 25,000 visitors, MACH is the UK’s national event to showcase engineering and manufacturing technologies and is complemented by the Engineering Supply Chain Show, bringing together a wider audience focused on capacity in the UK sub-contracting and supply chain sectors.

To exhibit, companies must be UK registered and offer capacity in sub-contract or supply chain services. Examples include precision machined-parts sub-contracting, castings and forgings, coatings, mechatronic and electronic design and assembly, extrusion, fabrication, finishing, forming, pressings and stampings, tool making, forming and manipulation, vacuum technology and design, development and testing services.

Mr Selka concluded: “With demand for UK domestic production growing, particularly post-Brexit, coupled with the desire to reduce goods miles as part of the UK’s commitment to greener manufacturing, we believe this exhibition is perfectly timed to support this drive.

“Exhibiting at the Engineering Supply Chain Show allows exhibitors to meet face-to-face with buyers and procurement professionals with budget authority to spend. Alongside MACH, no other UK exhibition delivers such a strong audience.”
