What makes M&E Week different?

  • Thousands of new products from hundreds of leading brands will be showcased, see all the UK’s leading manufacturing & engineering suppliers in one place.

  • Timing: In a post-pandemic, post-Brexit world, manufacturing and engineering have never been more important to the UK economy. M&E Week is the perfect place for professionals to secure the right partners to keep them competitive and grow the UK sector.

  • Experienced team: 100+ years of focused engineering, design and manufacturing industry knowledge means that the team behind M&E Week understand what is important to the sector to help you achieve optimum results. 

  • Industry advisory council: to help steer our content programme and direction, making sure that the event benefits all participating companies equally. See the members on page 10 of media pack, download here.

  • Location: with easy access to the UK’s motorway network, the NEC Birmingham is the recognised central location for a National show.

  • Unrivalled support: we are working closely with MAKE UK, IMECHE, IED and many other key association and media partners who bring a wealth of expertise to cover the complete manufacturing and engineering sector.

  • A carbon neutral event: With the UK’s commitment to reach net zero emissions by 2050 the importance of sustainability for the industry is higher than ever before. M&E Week will be contributing by running a carbon neutral event on the 8-9 June. Total emissions of 136.8 tons of CO2 have been estimated during the running of the event and to offset this, the team have organised the planting of 5472 trees in a dedicated M&E forest. The team are also planting a further tree for every visitor that attends. Find out more here.

  • Scale: 4 dedicated co-located shows on 8-9 June - Design Engineering Expo, Manufacturing Expo, Engineering Expo and Maintec providing more educational content than ever seen before. Working with key stake holders in government, trade bodies and industry, the 4 events outlined alongside other engineering & manufacturing shows at the same venue on the same days will deliver the widest level of content, best practice and business engagement for the UK’s industrial sector.
