The Engineering Supply Chain Show to run alongside MACH 2022

The Manufacturing Technologies Association (MTA) have announced that The Engineering Supply Chain Show - a brand new exhibition - will run alongside MACH 2022.

Running from 5th-7th April 2022 at the NEC in Birmingham, The Engineering Supply Chain Show offers UK engineering suppliers an exciting opportunity to meet face-to-face with buyers and procurement professionals who have purchasing authority, with the goal of establishing lucrative business relationships. Although The Engineering Supply Chain Show is part of MACH 2022, it will operate as a separate event with its own hall and entrance, guaranteeing exhibitors a targeted audience of purchasers from all manner of vertical industries.

Commenting on the new exhibition, James Selka DL, Chief Executive Officer at The Manufacturing Technologies Association said; “This is a very exciting time for the UK’s engineering and manufacturing supply chain. More and more UK OEMs and Tier 1 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.”

Appeasing the need for a successful UK subcontract zone at MACH, The Engineering Supply Chain Show is guaranteed to place UK subcontract suppliers in front of a captive audience. 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.

In order to exhibit, suppliers must be UK-registered and offer capacity in subcontract or supply chain services. This makes The Engineering Supply Chain Show a great fit for Qimtek Supplier Members - what's more, companies who sign up to join the EIA will benefit from exclusive pricing, reducing the standard rate to just £335/m² (down from £395/m²) for a shell scheme stand complete with nameboard, power socket, lighting and carpet.

This unmissable opportunity will help our members to grow their brand awareness into 2022 and beyond, as well as providing an exclusive platform to network with manufacturing buyers face-to-face.
