Meet suppliers, be inspired

In a post-pandemic, post-Brexit world, UK manufacturing’s importance is being underpinned by a new event designed to showcase engineering excellence

Manufacturing & Engineering Week (M&E Week) takes place 6 to 10 June 2022 at the NEC. The exhibition is designed to provide a dynamic, interactive series of virtual and live events over five days showcasing end-to-end manufacturing and engineering solutions. Whatever your design, engineering or manufacturing challenge, the show offers an opportunity to connect with experts and leave with ideas and solutions to apply.

Thousands of new products will be on display from hundreds of brands letting visitors see manufacturing and engineering suppliers under one roof.  The event team comprises over 100 years of focused engineering, design and manufacturing industry knowledge, understands the sector and is guided by an advisory board panel of experts.

The event is supported by associations and media including Make UK, IMECHE and the IED who also bring a wealth of expertise covering the manufacturing and engineering sector. 

Make UK’s chief executive, Stephen Phipson CBE, said: “There has never been a more important time for our sector to pull together and to work together, to create a shared agenda, help promote and encourage manufacturing and engineering innovation, and see our sectors grow and Manufacturing and Engineering Week will do exactly that. I am delighted to be part of the M&E Week advisory board and that Make UK is a partner for this ground-breaking event.”

The week will feature virtual sessions on Monday and Tuesday (6 and 7 June 2022), followed by live events on Wednesday and Thursday (8 and 9 June 2022) with a round up and key takeaways finishing the week on Friday (10 June 2022).
