The Advanced Engineering exhibition is on the lookout for start-ups to showcase their inventions as part of its innovation zone.
The Enabling Innovation Zone will support smaller enterprises that want to accelerate their innovations into the advanced manufacturing and technology industries.
Supported by Innovate UK/KTN, Advanced Engineering is searching for growing businesses to exhibit their disruptive technologies and inventions on the show floor. Start-ups across all engineering sectors, whether that be aerospace, automotive, marine, medical, automation or any other industry, are encouraged to apply. We expect to see some of the most exciting technologies including novel materials, automotive and autonomous technologies.
The opportunity, which is free of charge for successful applicants, will give innovators a platform to showcase their inventions to thousands of key industry players from a range of notable companies.
Successful applicants will receive a branded plinth in the Enabling Innovation Zone to display their technologies, along with full marketing support in the show’s catalogue, on its website and across its PR campaigns. During the show, exhibitors have the chance to gain further recognition as visitors will be able to vote for their favourite innovation, with the winner announced ahead of the show’s closure.
“Following the success of the Enabling Innovation showcases, this dedicated zone will act as a springboard for new and exciting technologies,” explains Jeremy Whittingham, Head of Marketing at Advanced Engineering. “As we are establishing an entire area of the show for such innovative businesses, the impact the zone will have is bound to surpass that of previous years and encourage the growth of even more innovations”.
Previous showcases have been instrumental in accelerating business growth, says past winner Aceleron.
“It played a crucial part in establishing our credibility and had a direct impact on at least five business relationships we have today”, said the advanced lithium battery developer.
