With an array of experience, expertise and knowledge all in one place,  as a manufacturer, you will not want to miss out on this esteemed event. 

 

Each year the Made in Group holds an exhibition in the Midlands, and is one of the biggest showcases of manufacturing in the UK. This year the event will take place in the Midlands at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry on 1st July.

There are a number of reasons why you should attend the Made in the Midlands Expo as a manufacturer from seminars by industry-leading experts to networking with fellow people from the sector. It is a great opportunity to learn more best practices and make new connections. We have narrowed it down to the top three reasons why this exhibition is important if you are a manufacturer or in the engineering sector.

1. The biggest showcase of manufacturing in the Midlands

The 11th exhibition taking place later this year is a great place to meet SMEs, global manufacturers and suppliers, including well-known names such as Sertec, Gardner Aerospace and Faro. With so many exhibitors present, if you are looking for a new supplier you are bound to meet your match here. Our members are all based in the Midlands, therefore you will be sure to find a supplier nearby, along with saving cost and the environment. Made in the Midlands member Lucy Castings exhibited at the event last year, Emma Holly, Managing Director, said: “There have been so many opportunities, lots of interest and people have come to us that we wouldn't have found otherwise."

 

2. Discover the benefits of Industry 4.0

There is no doubt that companies installing automation systems, including vision technologies and robots or cobots are seeing the benefits through improved productivity. In business, there is a constant drive to find ever-more efficient design and production processes and many business owners are looking at digitalisation and automation to find those gains and get ahead of the competition. The MIM Expo will showcase companies such as Bauromat and Siemens who offer automated solutions to manufacturers by increasing usage of both manpower and machines. You will also hear from industry leaders who can advise you on automation and the importance of digitalisation. 

 

3. Help champion the manufacturing sector!
