EventCity is one of the UK’s newest exhibition facilities. Easily accessible by road or public transport, it provides the perfect setting for the tremendously wide variety of services and products on display. The exhibitor list features numerous stand-out names from the world of engineering, including some of the world’s largest machinery and industrial equipment manufacturers, alongside the cream of the North’s engineering sector. Virtually every area of engineering enterprise is covered, from high-tech electronics to machinery and fabrication.

Manufacturing industry is vital for the north of the UK and Northern Ireland; manufacturing in the North West alone generates £20bn annually and employs some 400,000 people. The show provides a much-needed regional focus for manufacturing-related businesses, providing them with a convenient way to investigate the latest hardware as well as meeting with new suppliers and potential customers.

Northern Manufacturing & Electronics 2014 also provides visitors with the opportunity to up-skill, thanks to its ever-popular free technical seminar programme that runs over both days of the show. A collection of one-hour sessions provided by noted experts in their fields touches on a wide range of technical and operational topics such as Lean, CE Marking, product development and marketing. Presenters this year include The CE Marking association, Lucid Innovation and OptimumFX. The full programme and pre-registration can be found on the show’s website at www.industrynorth.co.uk.
