Subcon, The Engineer Expo & The Manufacturing Managment Show at the NEC in June.

7th to the 9th June, 2022, Birmingham NEC
Subcon is the UK’s premier subcontract manufacturing supply chain show. Now in its 45th year, the show's longevity is a testament to the high-quality content and the variety of UK and international exhibitors it provides. For 2022, Subcon will be co-located once again with The Engineer Expo and the very popular Manufacturing Management Show. Together, they will deliver a unique and relevant event for the manufacturing and engineering industry, bringing the best suppliers, latest innovations and practical advice to help build new partnerships and optimise business strategies.  All visitors will benefit from free access to all three events.

We are excited to announce that we will once again be sponsoring the VIP Buyers' Lounge, which will give both our buyers and suppliers some amazing benefits..


Do you qualify as a VIP Buyer?


VIP Buyer Benefits:

The last time Qimtek sponsored Subcon's VIP Buyers' Lounge, over 500 VIP buyers attended. The  feedback from the show was that the buyers enjoyed the area, as it provided them with a place to digest the information that they had already gathered and plan the rest of their visit. Some brought exhibitors back to have light meetings, whilst others simply came along to sit down and relax with complimentary food and drinks. 

  • Spend over £500k annually to qualify.
  • Access to the private VIP lounge.
  • Free refreshments throughout the show.
  • Complimentary networking lunches and snacks.
  • Free car parking (please bring along your Qimtek invite).

We will promote you to thousands of manufacturing buyers pre-show, inviting them to visit your stand by phone, email and social media.


We will be inviting all of our registered buyers to come to the show as guests and VIP buyers to join us in the sponsored lounge.


As we are situated opposite the Buyers' Lounge, we meet LOTS of buyers and will introduce you to those who are looking for your type of service.


We will promote you through in-show social media by way of interviews and product showcasings. You can also leave your brochures in the VIP lounge.


We have negotiated a GREAT deal for Qimtek members who are looking to exhibit this year. Please contact Dean Munkley on 01256 394 521 if you would like to find out more.


Upon request, we will provide you with scans from the buyers who visited our stand, giving you even more leads to follow up after the event.

The variety of enquiries that come through really suit our business needs. As a result, we’ve been able to form quite a few well-established relationships with buyers, who continue to provide us with ongoing work. The Qimtek team have provided us a lot of support over the years. Just one example, through our association with yourselves we turned over £3.5m with a customer last year that we found at Subcon 2017.  This year (2021) the forecast is for £6m. We would definitely recommend them to other companies!
