Northern Manufacturing & Electronics returns to EventCity, Manchester from 30 September to 1 October 2015. Described by ETES, the organiser, as the North's top industrial technology and engineering show, the event is once again fielding an impressive list of exhibitors, offering visitors the chance to meet a huge variety of vendors.
Now in its third year, the show is the partner event to the well-established Southern Manufacturing show, following a similar format and scope. Around 250 companies are expected to take part this year, covering a wide range of activities from electronics, components and subcontract offerings, to machinery, drives, linear motion, enclosures, tooling and production hardware. Also represented are suppliers of industrial fixtures and fittings, consumables, and business services such as IP protection, training and finance. ETES says the event has rapidly established itself as the key engineering business event in the North, allowing visitors to address a wide number of sourcing and production issues in a single visit. This year the show adds a new feature – RoadRailAir – reflecting the region's supply chain strengths in aerospace, automotive and public transportation manufacture.
EventCity is located very close to Manchester City Centre and is well served by public transport and air links to the rest of the UK and beyond. The site has 3000 free car park places and is conveniently situated just off junctions 9 and 10 of the M60.
Alongside a comprehensive selection of exhibitors, ranging from global machinery manufacturers to local specialist firms, the show offers a busy and varied free technical seminar programme running over both days. Authorities from industry will present on a range of topics, including the aerospace supply chain, Lean, CE Marking, intellectual property protection, innovation and 3D printing. A full seminar programme is available at www.industrynorth.co.uk.
