MACH 2018

Posted in World Industry News & Events on 29th Mar 2017

Taking place from 9th - 13th April 2018, MACH is the UK's premier event to showcase engineering based manufacturing technologies.

No other event brings together so many key decision makers across a five day period. No other event attracts over 25,000 visitors with real purchasing power - all looking to meet new suppliers, find new products, network and form new business relationships.

  • Attracting over 25,000 visitors
  • Over 600 exhibitors
  • Over £150M worth of business attributable to MACH 2016
  • Organised and hosted by the MTA to support UK Manufacturing

As MACH 2016 entered its final stages, many exhibitors, having had a great exhibition this year, were already beginning to plan for MACH 2018. Last week saw the launch of the next edition of the UK’s premier manufacturing technology exhibition and for the first time ever exhibitors were able to book their stands for the next show two years in advance, at MACH 2016. The exhibition will be the first to be held in the NEC’s newer ‘Atrium’ Halls. 

The move will enable the whole show to take place in a single uninterrupted space. The new layout has more entrances and more great spaces for your stand than ever before. Initial sales for 2018 have been really positive with space in the un-balloted areas of the exhibition being snapped up quickly by companies keen to secure their place on the floor plans. 

MTA Head of Events James Fudge, said “We have had a great reaction to the hall move and this has been reflected in the number of exhibitors keen to reserve for 2018. We have seen interest for all areas of the show and over 50 exhibitors have already secured their spaces.” He continued “We would encourage everyone interested in exhibiting at MACH 2018 to talk to our Sales team for more information.” 


Don't miss your chance to be a part of the UK’s best and most established showcase in the latest manufacturing technologies.
