Southern Electronics 2010

The free technical seminar programme for Southern Electronics 2010 has been announced. For many visitors – and indeed exhibitors – the technical seminar programme is one of the highlights of the two-day exhibition that takes place at FIVE, Farnborough on February 10th and 11th.

This year’s show will once again deliver a wide-ranging programme of sessions that will be of interest to anyone involved in electronics enterprise.

The free seminar programme is always an extremely popular attraction of the Southern Electronics show. The sessions taking place over both days of the show are a fantastic opportunity for visitors and exhibitors alike to acquire practical advice and guidance on topics affecting electronics business today from experts in their respective fields. No other event offers free access to such high-calibre technical and commercial expertise, and is a further compelling reason for engineering and industrial professionals to visit the show.

This year’s seminar programme encompasses discussions on technical developments, business management, marketing and the latest industrial legislation.

The True Cost of Outsourcing is examined by Tony Inskip of Stadium Electronics in a revealing session that will help delegates find the best fit for their own manufacturing models. In How to Succeed at New Product Development, Grant Baker from the Manufacturing Advisory Service –South East (MAS-SE) will examine the techniques used to sort “winners” from “losers” at the earliest stages of development. In his session, Rapid Manufacturing in the Future, Graham Tromans from the Rapid Manufacturing Research Group at Loughborough University will assess the impact of the latest Rapid Prototyping and Rapid Tooling techniques on future manufacturing.

How to Become a Supplier to the Auto/Aero Sector presented by Clive Lewis of Achieving The Difference will look at how enterprises can find their niche within this lucrative sector and how other companies have successfully entered the market. Sue Talbot from MAS-SE will look at some of the ways that businesses can ensure they have the right materials at the right time in her session Stock Reduction and Materials Management.
