Why now?
The UK remains a global force for engineering and manufacturing; driving innovation, leading on the industrial agenda, the green economy, industry 4.0 and being at the forefront of the response to the global pandemic, however in a post-Covid and post-Brexit world, Britain’s standing, and its future, will require engineering and manufacturing to grow and strengthen. Engineering Expo, part of Manufacturing and Engineering Week, seeks to celebrate the sector, showcasing innovation, sharing successes and future insight, raise critical discussion and is a destination for professionals to source suppliers and solutions in order to secure the right partners to keep them competitive and grow the UK sector.

“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 Advisory Board and that MAKE UK are a partner for this ground-breaking event.”
