Manufacturers, engineers, researches and buyers within the manufacturing technologies industry in the UK and around the world have one major event on their calendar circled every two years. We’re talking about MACH, of course. Based in Birmingham at the NEC, this international trade show has been operational for over a century and has been the first place where many innovations and cutting-edge advancements have seen their debut. MACH promotes cross-border sales and is a major generator of revenue for exhibitors. The technologies on display cover 3D printing, cutting tools, metal forming machines, shaping tools, CAD, CAM, machine tools, factory automation, mechanical handling, storage technology and so much more.
- MACH is an industry leader in its class for its scale alone as editions attract somewhere around 600 exhibitors on average and an audience of 25,000 professionals;
- MACH also succeeds in providing a fertile ground for networking, contract negotiations and direct orders as 95% of exhibitors generated sales leads and 51% received tenders and quotation requests. The show also scores high in the launch of new products and elevated exhibitor profiles;
- MACH enjoys continued support from several major organisations and associations such as the Institute of Materials Finishing, the Metalforming Machinery Makers' Association, the Association of Welding Distribution and the Association of Industrial Laser Users.
