Manufacturing in the North contributes the highest percentage of GVA of any region in the UK. Located in EventCity, Manchester, Northern Manufacturing & Electronics is located right at the heart of the action. Since its launch in 2013, the show has quickly established itself as one of the key marketplaces for industrial technology, components and engineering services in the North, and an un-missable event for the region’s manufacturers and their associated supply chains. The show combines the latest production technologies, such as machining centres, 3D printing and automation, with top subcontract service providers such as electronics assembly, precision machining and high-tech finishing, making it possible to address a wide range of procurement and capital investment issues in a single, convenient visit.
Aerospace, automotive and public transportation manufacture are vital components of the North’s industrial economy, and this importance is reflected in the show’s RoadRailAir feature. Along with seeing all the latest hardware in action, visitors from these industries are able to easily locate local enterprises with specialist expertise and experience in these sectors. Northern Manufacturing & Electronics is supported by several leading industrial bodies such as the North West Aerospace Alliance, the Society of Motor Manufacturers & Traders, the Gear & Tool Makers Association, Composites UK and many others.
