The Manufacturing & Engineering Magazine (MEM) is the proud media partner of UK Metals Expo (UKME) to be held on 14 and 15 September at the NEC, Birmingham.
The UK Metals Expo will be the first time that the entire industry is both represented and brought together fully under one roof from primary metal manufacture, supply chain management, processing metals, fabrication, surface coatings and recycling with industry experts, leading vendors and manufacturers such as Unilever, Royal Mint, Airbus, Jaguar Land Rover, Brompton Cycle, the Ministry of Defence, Ford Motor company, Landsec and Rolls-Royce.
UK Metals Expo also benefits from full endorsement and collaboration from the UK Metals Council and its members: Advanced Forming Research Centre, Aluminium Federation, Aluminium Packaging Recycling Organisation, British Constructional Steelwork Association, British Metals Recycling Association, British Stainless Steel Association, Confederation British Metalforming, Cast Metals Federation, the Galvanizers Association, Metal Packaging Manufacturers Association, UK Steel, The Welding Institute and numerous other industry bodies.
Coming years will see the need to rise to some significant challenges such as skills shortages, recycling effectively, trading post Brexit and increasing competitiveness. With a new Governing Body co-chaired by Lord Rupert Redesdale and Chris MacDonald, the influence of the event will be year-round with major initiatives, challenges and successes discussed and presented in detail in the show floor theatres.
The event includes a free to attend exhibition and conference providing a 2-day comprehensive programme packed with products and services, business networking, industry insights, design inspirations, best-practices and innovative solutions.
