Northern manufacturing show will debut in October

21 June, 2013

The organisers of the UK's long-running Southern Manufacturing & Electronics Show have launched a similar event for the North of England. The two-day Northern Manufacturing & Electronics Show will be held for the first time at Manchester’s Event City on 2–3 October, 2013.

Over the past 17 years, the Southern Manufacturing & Electronics Show has been drawing inreasing numbers of visitors and exhibitors from the southern half of the country to its Farnborough venue. This year it attracted a record 8,500 visitors.

“Northern Manufacturing will bring a similar focus to manufacturing in the North,” says show director, Phil Valentine, “allowing easy access by industrial professionals from the Midlands, North Wales, the north of England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Eire.”

Sectors covered by the show will include machinery and production equipment, components, electronics and sub-contracting. The event will include a free seminar programme on both days, offering presentations by industry figures.

The organisers hope the new event will draw similar crowds to their Southern Manufacturing event

The 28,000m² Event City is the UK’s second-largest exhibition venue outside of London. It has 3,000 free on-site car parking spaces, and offers easy access by road, rail and air.

Entry to Northern Manufacturing & Electronics 2013 will be free to business visitors. To register online for tickets, or to find out about exhibiting visit the show’s Web site. You can also follow news from the show on LinkedIn or on its blog page
