This year Subcon is co-located with The Engineer Expo and the Advanced Manufacturing Show, which will feature on-stand demonstrations of the latest manufacturing and design products.

The Engineer Conference – which runs alongside all three events – will deliver insight on industry issues, with presentations from industry leaders responsible for some of the UK’s most inspiring and ground-breaking engineering and manufacturing projects.

“This year, amidst challenging economic headwinds, we are dedicated to helping UK engineering and manufacturing businesses harness innovation, forge new partnerships and shape their future business strategies,” said Subcon event director Gordon Kirk. 

“From the industry-leading programme of The Engineer Conference to the demonstrations within the Advanced Manufacturing Show and the manufacturing supply chain community that is Subcon, this is all aimed towards one thing – realising business success sooner.”
