11/05/2018 - Advanced Engineering show 2018 at Birmingham

The “Advanced Engineering” exhibition was held during 31st October & 1st November at the NEC, Birmingham (United Kingdom). This was SikaAxson UK’s third year of showcasing our expertise and innovation within Composites and Tooling.

Established as the UK’s largest annual composites event and covers the entire value chain across raw materials, design and processing. The exhibition showcases the latest advances in engineering, converging innovations & developments to enable UK manufacturers to compete and grow in an ever-competitive global market.

Advanced Engineering has allowed SikaAxson to not only make new connections and meet new customers but improve and enhance our existing business and to help them find solutions for their projects.

This year saw a 50% increase in VIP attendance from the previous with over 600
Exhibitors under one roof. It also increased the number of zones from 5 to 6 this year with focus on Composites Engineering, Aero Engineering, Performance Metals Engineering, Automotive Engineering, Connected Manufacturing and Nuclear Engineering.
