A brand new industry event celebrating the best in UK manufacturing & engineering excellence & innovation launches at the NEC, Birmingham in June 2022, comprising of three sector specific events: Design Engineering Expo, Engineering Expo & Manufacturing Expo.

In a first for the sector, events business, Nineteen Events is working closely with industry trade bodies, MAKE UK (the manufacturers' organisation), IMechE (Institution of Mechanical Engineers), IED (Institution of Engineering Designers) and other prominent stakeholders from across the industry, to build and deliver the UK’s first week-long event celebrating the UK’s manufacturing and engineering sector. Manufacturing & Engineering Week brings together a series of live events that showcase the complete manufacturing and engineering solutions and supply chain, alongside additional exclusive virtual events to encourage conversation, knowledge sharing and action.

The UK remains a global force for manufacturing and engineering: driving innovation, leading on the industrial agenda, the green economy and industry 4.0; however, in a post-COVID and post-Brexit world, Britain’s standing, and its future, will require engineering and manufacturing to grow and strengthen. Manufacturing & Engineering Week (M&E Week) seeks to celebrate the sector, showcasing innovation, sharing successes and future insights, raising critical discussion – and it is a destination for professionals to source suppliers and solutions in order to secure the right partners to keep them competitive and grow the UK sector.

Engineering Expo is dedicated to the driving force behind manufacturing. Keynotes lifting the lid on the latest developments and most interesting engineering projects will run alongside practical workshops and an innovative showcase of the latest technologies and solutions.

Design Engineering Expo focuses on the challenges and innovations at the heart of the sector. Covering electronics and embedded design through to testing, the event will showcase the latest technologies propelling the future of design engineering.

Manufacturing Expo will cover all aspects of the manufacturing process and supply chain, showcasing the best in British suppliers, innovations and technologies to enhance performance.

The events in June 2022 will each showcase the UK’s best products and services, giving buyers the opportunity to see live demonstrations, meet the teams behind the services and save time by reviewing suppliers under one roof.

Running alongside the exhibitions will be a full programme of free to attend educational content, including keynotes from industry leaders, practical how to sessions and workshops – all CDP accredited.

M&E Week is proud to have the support and direction from an Advisory Board of leaders in the sector which includes: Libby Meyrick, CEO, Institute of Engineering Designers; Eric Wilkinson, CEO, Cambridge Consultants; Andrew Burrows, Director, PA Consulting; Philippa Oldham, Partnerships Director, Advanced Propulsion Centre; and Stephen Phipson, CBE, Chief Executive, MAKE UK.

Together, the three shows, and additional co-located events, provide a compelling, value-packed event celebrating the sector enabling visitors to save time sourcing new partners, stay up-to-date and get ahead of the competition, and for exhibitors, it delivers an unrivalled opportunity to meet face-to-face and do business with cross-sector manufacturing and engineering professionals.

There has never been a more important time for our sector to pull together and to work together, to create a shared agenda, help promote and encourage manufacturing and engineering innovation, and see our sectors grow and Manufacturing & Engineering Week will do exactly that. I am delighted to be part of the M&E Week Advisory Board and that MAKE UK are a partner for this ground breaking event.
Stephen Phipson, CBE, Chief Executive, MAKE UK

Design doesn’t stop – it’s dynamic, forthright and exciting, and the IED is supporting the launch of the Design Engineering Expo to help showcase all of these elements and the outstanding work of the design community now and in the future.
Libby Meyrick, Chief Executive, Institution of Engineering Designers
