The Manufacturing and Engineering (M&E) Week has revealed two new special show features which will be held throughout the two-day co-located events.
An innovation zone will showcase live demonstrations of the UK’s most cutting-edge products, to demonstrate the latest technologies that are shaping the future. Key highlights include an AI car, the world’s first VTOL biplane, displayed by Coventry University’s Formula Student and UAS Challenge Teams, plus an Aston Martin Formula 1 racing car simulator which uses cloud ERP from software vendor IFS.
The Great Egg race will also be taking place across both days of the show, as engineers are invited to compete to build gadgets to propel an uncooked egg over a wall into a tractor trailer, with winners announced onsite at the end of the day. Teams can still enter and can enquire by emailing [email protected].
Encompassing four events to showcase the very best of the UK’s manufacturing and engineering sector, the M&E Week provides a platform which not only educates the industry via a full programme consisting of workshops, talks and presentations, but also provides a place for professionals across the industry to network and learn from each other.
With the M&E Week kicking off with two days of digital sessions from 6th June 2022, the co-located events will be taking place from 8th-9th June at the NEC in Birmingham. Covering the entire product lifecycle of the manufacturing and engineering industry, the four events include the Design Engineering Expo, the Engineering Expo, the Manufacturing Expo and Maintec. Each show provides different seminars, workshops and presentations based on a specific area within the sector. Topics focus on a wide range of hot issues, including the future of the sector, embracing the need for digital transformation, incorporating AI, Net Zero and the diversity and skills gap.
As the official agency partner of M&E Week, we are looking forward to a jam-packed couple of days, and supporting the organizers, Nineteen Group, with what will be a truly informative, and engaging event.
